In order to provide the best possible service to our participants from cultivation to harvest, 14 multi-day training modules will take place throughout the year. This way the participants can solve problems that might arise with the VSF trainers quickly and competently.

An independent life in the country or an existence in the slums of Africa's megacities? The training project of VSF aims at securing a solid livelihood in their homeland even for future generations of Sandawe. | © Veterinarians without Borders

An increasing number of young Sandawe are forced to abandon their land and leave their home to work as day labourers in the large cities. Instead, a life in the slums of the megacities is predefined. In order to prevent this development, Veterinarians without Borders have launched a mobile school for livestock farming and agriculture.

The Sandawe are one of the most ancient tribes in the world. For 87,000 years, the skillful hunters and gatherers have inhabited the East African steppe. Today they live - pushed back - in a small area in the heart of Tanzania. To survive, the Sandawe also practice livestock farming and agriculture. However, yields are low because the Sandawe lack agricultural experience.
