Tanzania project

The aim of the project is to improve the quality of life and socio-economic conditions of the population of the Kisiju Ward area (district of the village of Kisiju-Pwani) south of Dar es Salaam. The project is aimed at enhancing the fishing potential of the area and is divided into 4 main phases.

The phases of the project:


Phase 1

Construction of a water distribution network with 10 km of pipes, managed by a local committee. Canalization of existing salt pans to create basins for fish farming (especially the so-called "milkfi sh"), locks and embankments to exploit the flow of
oceanic tides, in line with the recommendations of the Tanzanian Authorities responsible for the Protection of the Environment, that is, preserving the mangroves that line the coast and the tidal rising channels towards the interior. Milkfi sh: it is herbivorous and can be bred using algae-based feed (Lablab), it has a very rapid growth even in conditions of high density, it is resistant to many bacteria and viruses. Ideal weight for trade: 1 kg.


Phase 2

Collection and processing of cashews.


Phase 3

Education and training of young Tanzanians at schools in nearby Mkuranga and in Italy, thanks to the mobility of students (ad hoc scholarships are provided) and university professors formally included among the project partners (UNIMI and POLIMI).
The courses will mainly concern the management of the fish production and trade chain and the training of local operators for the management of fish farming basins and the preparation of students from local high schools. Promotion of local businesses that can make an economic profit from the resources made available by the project and from the fish distribution and trade chain.


Phase 4

Improvement of the nutritional standard with the use of indigenous food supplements based on Moringa Oleifera.
