Our Efforts in Tanzania

Catalyste+ has worked in Tanzania since 2017 with a focus on developing the private sector to drive productivity and employment. This work continues with the Accelerating Women’s Empowerment program that builds the capacity of partners in tourism and agriculture, the socio-economic backbone of Tanzania. We’re supporting environmentally sustainable initiatives that advance gender equality and community economic development.

Strengthening Agribusiness

We help micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and co-operatives improve operations and management. We collaborate with farmers to enhance production, access to finance and marketing.

Building Capacity for Tourism and Hospitality

Women make up over 70% of workers in tourism. Technical assistance helps associations, operators, businesses and entrepreneurs develop their services and increase competitiveness.

How We’ve Made a Difference in Tanzania

▪ The National College of Tourism improved their marketing, financial management and leadership capacity, ensuring quality education for future tourism leaders.

▪ Through partnership with Naioth International Foundation (NAIOTH), we provided training on improving agronomical practices for increased productivity among women vegetable producers.

▪ Staff and board members with the Community Hands Foundation (CHF) strengthened their skills in resource management and communication strategy.
