Sponsor a Child in Tanzania

Tanzania Today

Shortly after achieving independence from Britain in the early 1960s, Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the nation of Tanzania in 1964. Today, nearly 85 percent of the country's poor live in rural areas and rely on agriculture as their main source of income.

  • Tanzania has a very high unemployment rate of close to 67 percent.
  • Diseases such as bacterial diarrhea, hepatitis A, typhoid fever, malaria and even plague are common.
  • Nearly 60 percent of the population survives on less than U.S.$2 a day.
