Where it all began

Who are We?

Our activities are delivered by young people willing to become agents of change. We also get support and work alongside different organizations and Individuals, both local and international, including NGOs, government institutions, private sector, community groups and individuals passionate about delivering sustainable development in the communities.

NIA feels duty-bound to play a leading role in assisting Tanzanian rural communities to develop economically and socially. We engage with young people in the development sector to show a positive impact they can make, especially in eradicating poverty through education.

Our focus so far has been on delivering School Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (SWASH), Menstrual Hygiene Management project, installation of rainwater harvesting (RWH) tanks at schools located in rural areas and supporting school infrastructures such as renovation of classrooms and building new classrooms if there are high needs.

School Infrastructure

Realizing the increase in enrollment rate in both Primary and Secondary schools in Tanzania NIA is working with partners and different stakeholders to renovate the existing classroom so that students are having a conducive environment to study, also constructing new classrooms at the identified partner schools to accommodate the increased enrollment rate.

Clean Water

NIA believes that if there is clean and safe water in the schools then students will have ample time learning and they will not be sent to fetch water during class hours, NIA is implementing a water harvesting project which is intended to harvest water with the right amount of fluoride and does not affect student’s teeth during consumption, this intervention involves setting up a system that will enable water harvesting, this includes setting up water tanks in partner schools.

Student's Health

NIA intervention in this area includes, Water sanitation and Hygiene-this intervention involves creating awareness on clean water and sanitation in schools both primary and secondary schools emphasizing steps for handwashing and constructing handwashing stations in the partner schools, another intervention is (MHM) Menstrual Hygiene Management sessions to the young girls in the age of between 15 to 19 in both primary and secondary school also distributing sanitary pads to these students.

The MHM Project aims to break the menstrual taboos amongst rural communities, also MHM Project involves the construction of a private room( Girls Friendly Toilets) that support them to be comfortable during their menstrual periods NIA Believes that with the good health absenteeism will be reduced hence increase in performance in both Primary and secondary school
