Let’s introduce the team….

Sustainability is about meeting the needs of the present without harming future generations’ abilities to meet their own needs. Sustainable consumption concerns the use of non-renewable and renewable resources, particularly in the production of food and other goods, and is something that we have particularly come across here in Isipi.

The 5th December is International Volunteer Day, a day where the power and the potential of volunteerism is celebrated. Here in Nundu we have been considering what volunteerism means, not only to us as individuals but to the local community and global society as a whole.

Trees are being cut down from the natural forests all over Tanzania at an alarming rate which is creating major issues with deforestation. Team Isipi is working to help locals battle this issue by both planting seedlings and building rocket stoves.

Access to safe, basic sanitation is not only a human right but, alongside good hygiene practice is crucial to disease and poverty reduction. In the rural area of the Njombe region where Raleigh works, sanitation and hygiene facilities such as gender-specific latrines and handwashing stations are often absent or in very poor condition. Government standards state that the ratio of pupil to drop-hole in schools should be 1:25 for boys and 1:20 for girls, yet in Njombe the average is 1:89. Raleigh Tanzania has been working in the village of Peluhanda to support the primary school gain improved access and understanding of sanitation and hygiene.

Our final phase in Nundu will see the completion of a new latrine block at the village primary school alongside the delivery of water and sanitation, hygiene (SWASH) lessons to its students. This week, we had the opportunity to discuss the impact of our work with Nuru, the teacher who will be leading SWASH after we leave, as well as find out about how the school will continue to promote positive behaviour changes around hygiene in the future.
