One of the world's poorest economies in terms of per capita income, Tanzania nonetheless has achieved high growth rates based on gold production and tourism. Reliant on agriculture and foreign aid to continue to develop, Tanzania received the world's largest Millennium Challenge Compact grant, worth US $698 million. Though the state has seen continued political tensions since one-party rule ended in 1995 it has remained relatively peaceful.

Although Afrinspire has long had links with Tanzania, the partners with which we are working currently are fairly new relationships.
