This project is part of a community development scheme run by two missionaries – Rachel and Tim Monger, who work alongside the Tanzania Assembiles of God Church, supporting conservation agriculture, beekeeping, tree planting, rural health and women’s groups. The project is engaged in two villages – Kayenze and Malya.
Uyogo is the main village in a small cluster of communities in the Tabora Region of western Tanzania. The area is within the extensive Miombo Forest and tree honey produced by Uyogo beekeepers and others is popular throughout Tanzania. Uyogo has established links with Kenilworth in the UK. The Kenilworth-Uyogo Friendship Link (KUFL) has funded the school, a medical centre and a fresh water supply. Yet, life in the village is still very hard.
