In Tanzania, women keep producing with the support of TIKA

5 corn grinding machines were supplied to the women's cooperative operating in Siha, one of the least developed regions of Tanzania.

Tanzanian women, who produce corn flour with rented machines in order to earn income and support their families, had to give some of their income to the machine owners, and as a result, they were experiencing serious financial difficulties.

In these challenges conditions, “Kilimanjaro Siha Region Women’s Cooperatives Support Project” was implemented upon the request from Dr. Godvin Molel Foundation.

Within the scope of the project, 5 corn grinding machines were given to each cooperative.

Turkey’s Ambassador to Tanzania Dr. Mehmet Güllüoğlu, Siha District Governor Dr. Christopher D. Timbuka, governor’s office and municipal administrators, and local residents attended to handover ceremony held at the Siha’s regional council.

It is aimed that a total of 250 women from 5 different cooperatives established by women living in rural areas will benefit from the project.

Although Siha region is one of the least developed regions of Tanzania, it is known as a region where starchy grains, especially the type of bread called “ugali” made from corn flour, are the staple food. That is why supporting corn flour production is seen as an important step that will help the people of the region meet their basic food needs.
