• Healthcare/Medical Project: CHF is currently partnering with hospitals, clinics and nonprofit organizations in Moshi and to help improve healthcare and treatment for Tanzanians. Volunteers will work alongside local doctors and nurses and promote basic health, sanitation, disease prevention, family planning and much more throughout local community.
• Women´s Empowerment project: The programme has space for 35 women and looks after them until they graduate from the program able to support themselves. The project empowers the women by teaching them in vocational skills such as computing, sewing or making handicrafts so that they can set up their own businesses or seek employment and graduate from the project. The project organizes the women into collectives, giving them seed capital to start their own businesses but also provides financial planning and accounting support even when they have graduated from the initial project. The empowerment project operates a micro finance scheme.
• HIV/AIDS Awareness and counseling Project
• Livelihoods, Agriculture and Food Security: CHF’s economic development work engages government, market and community actors to improve families´ economic well-being so that they can spend more on healthcare, education, food, nutrition, etc. for their children. We do this, for example, by assisting entrepreneurs access new markets, helping communities form their own savings and loan groups, and preparing adolescents and youth for economic opportunities. CHF also initiates table banking Table-banking is a group funding strategy where Amani Women Group meet once every week, place their savings, loan repayments and other contributions on the table then borrow immediately either as long term or short term loans. The women use the money borrowed as capital for their livelihood projects.
