Story

The Cambridge Development Initiative (CDI) is a non-profit organization that improves the wellbeing of Tanzanians. CDI empowers student leaders in the UK and Tanzania to catalyse change in their societies through innovative projects in the areas of healthcare, education, entrepreneurship, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WaSH). Since 2013, CDI has mobilized over 100 student volunteers to launch sustainable, community-oriented solutions to Dar es Salaams most significant challenges.

Your proceeds will support the following projects:

CDI's WaSH project engages directly with community leaders to provide a sustainable, community-focused solution to the sanitation crisis in Tanzania. Operating in Dar es Salaam's informal settlements, the WaSH project works with local technicians to construct sewerage systems that overcome construction challenges while providing economic incentives for local ownership. The propagation of these sewerage systems paves the way for a solution to the transmission of waterborne diseases, such as cholera and diarrhoeal diseases. This year, the WaSH team is also collaborating closely with Blue Tap on the strategic delivery of low-cost water filters, furthering our contribution towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6.

The CDI Health project expands healthcare access within Dar es Salaams informal settlements by partnering with local health workers and community members to create capacity-building initiatives. CDI has launched training programs in the areas of family planning, maternal health, sanitation, and STI prevention, which have reached over 135 community members.

Our Education project improves Tanzanias education system by empowering students to become agents of positive change in their communities. This project develops students professional capacity and enables them to create solutions to academic challenges. Since 2014, we have enhanced the learning outcomes of over 1000 students while promoting future professional success.

Our Entrepreneurship project enables Tanzanian youth to kickstart innovative businesses that are transforming Dar es Salaams professional landscape. This programme has provided over 70 young adults with entrepreneurial skills, incubated over 30 social enterprises, and connected over 450 students, business professionals, and government leaders.
