The silent revolution of the Maasai women of Tanzania
The semi-nomadic livestock holders of the Maasai are at the top of the tourist wish list for people visiting Tanzania. But how many of these tourists stop to consider the fate of these people and of the Maasai women in particular?
Will we give youths prospects for the future?
In the north of Tanzania, less than 3% of the working population receives a fixed pay. Young people who do not make their own way are heading into a bleak future. Not a pleasant prospect...
Farmers, stockbreeders and wild animals under pressure
In the arid north of Tanzania, rising population and scarce natural resources require fields, grazing areas and migratory routes for wild animals to be more clearly defined.
Trias strengthens 350 village and community banks (VICOBAs) in the north of Tanzania which provide crucial leverage for the emancipation of 7,140 Maasai women.
Farmers from the organisation Mviwata in Tanzania have inaugurated a new irrigation project. With support from Trias, they restored over 5 km of irrigation canals last year.
Supported by Trias, Edward Loure succeeded in preserving 80,000 hectares for nomadic stockbreeders in Tanzania. He has been awarded the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize.
