Tanzania is a country in eastern Africa, approximately 68 percent of Tanzania's 44.9 million citizens live below the poverty line of $1.25 a day. 32 percent of the population are malnourished. The most prominent challenges Tanzania faces in poverty reduction are unsustainable harvesting of its natural resources, unchecked cultivation, climate change and water- source encroachment, according to the United Nations Development Programme.
46,000,000 people in Uganda and Tanzania do not have access to clean drinking water. That's the approximately 2 times the population of Australia! Over 4000 children die every year from diarrhoea from drinking contaminated water in Tanzania and 70% of households in Tanzania are without clean drinking water
Women and children, especially girls, carry the burden to collect water each day in Tanzania, resulting in walking for many kilometres, often leaving them in vulnerable situations and not allowing them to attend school to receive an education.
