Where We Work

Tanzania’s Private Forestry Programme (PFP) aims to increase rural income in its target area, which consists of nine districts in the Southern Highlands and Kilombero Valley. The districts in their respective regions are:

  • Njombe Region:  Njombe Town Council, Makete, Njombe and Ludewa districts
  • Morogoro Region: Kilombero and Ulanga districts
  • Iringa Region: Mufindi and Kilolo districts
  • Songea Region: Songea district


The villages in the Southern Highland are selected based on the following criteria:

  • The village should have 1000m of annual rainfall
  • The village should have a Village Land Use Plan (VLUP)
  • The beneficiary should be part of a Tree Grower’s Association, but not necessary
  • The village should have enough land available


Currently the Programme is working in pilot villages and the number increases as the Programme advances. Click the links below to access the list of the villages we are working in and the related location map.
