The Michigan State University Tanzania Partnership Program (TPP) is a long-term collaborative alliance of local and international organizations dedicated to improving local livelihoods and promoting community resiliency in Tanzania. TPP addresses community-identified needs through a participatory and integrated approach that draws on local and international expertise. This approach provides fertile ground for development-related research, forms the foundation for development activities, and opens a space for a community engagement-focused study aboard program. TPP began its work in two pilot villages—Milola, in the southern region of Lindi, and Naitolia, in the northern region of Arusha—in 2009. In 2015, TPP began to expand its efforts to adjacent villages. With support from TPP funders and overseas partners, TPP is making a difference in these communities.
