In Partnership with the people of Kamanga Village, Tanzania
Our strength comes through partnering with other pioneering organizations on the ground in Tanzania
With their specific expertise, we are able to bring more focus and experience to each of our projects
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SENGEREMA DISTRICT COUNCIL
We have been working tirelessly in partnership with Sengerema District Council to bring the NYAMATONGO HEALTH CENTRE to Kamanga. The Council Health Management Team (CHMT) in particular has been invaluable in contributing their expertise to help us design the building appropriately. The community and village leadership have been equally supportive as the people of Kamanga currently have no access to health services in their village, or at any reasonable distance.
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MSAADA
We have also been working with our chosen architect and construction expert, MSAADA Architects since 2015 to create, refine and execute the plans for Nyamatongo Health Centre. MSAADA has over 30 years experience planning, designing and implementing building projects often in the developing world, including Tanzania, and have completed a number of health facility projects in the Sengerema district.
Cedar Tanzania expects to be spending approximately $350,000 in phase I of the Health Centre. After the completion of the construction of Phase II and Phase III, Cedar Tanzania would like to retain project oversight for a period of 10 years, to ensure that all systems and processes are well established and working well, before handing all operations over to the District Council, ensuring its long-term sustainability and integration within government systems.
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH INTERTEAM
INTERTEAM are a Swiss based organization whose moto ‘Sharing knowledge - Alleviate poverty’ has guided them to fight for better living conditions in poverty-stricken countries, since 1964.
At the heart of their commitment is the transfer of knowledge, skills and experience to partner organizations, like us Cedar Tanzania. To this end, INTERTEAM organises work assignments for qualified Swiss professionals who carry out development work in Africa or Latin America for at least three years.
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH TAKEDA PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY
Takeda Pharmaceutical Company is a Japanese pharmaceuticals company with a large operation in Switzerland. Takeda’s corporate citizenship programme specifically caters to organisations, such as ourselves with a focus on providing quality healthcare in the developing world.
We are working with Takeda to utilise their extensive experience and expertise in healthcare delivery. We are currently taking our first steps in our partnership with Takeda and are moving in a promising direction towards being accepted onto their corporate citizenship programme.
In Partnership with Project Cure
Project C.U.R.E. or the Commission on Urgent Relief and Equipment is a long standing American charity that collects and then distributes medical equipment to organisation in developing nations across the world.
We have successfully applied for a container of equipment, worth approximately $300,000 to be used in our health centre. We have independently raised enough money to have the container shipped to us in Mwanza. The container provided by Project C.U.R.E. will help us in our goal to deliver exemplary healthcare to the entire Nyamatongo Ward.
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH RAISING VOICES
RAISING VOICES is an NGO based in Uganda. We have been partners with them since 2015. They 'envision relationships, families and communities where each voice is heard, each right respected and where each member can live free from violence.' Through their SASA! initiavive, Raising Voices gets along side communities to explore the issues of power imbalance between men and women, as a key driver of violence against women and girls.
The Cedar Tanzania SASA! team work in the village of Kamanga, together with 20 motivated village members, who have been trained in the SASA! methodology to become Community Activists. The CAs will be facilitating discussions in the local community, which explore power – what it is, who has it, how it is used, how it is abused and how power dynamics between women and men can change for the better.
