IntroductionMap of Milola sub-villages and project locations

Milola is located in Lindi District about 60 kilometers inland and made up of two villages – Milola A and Milola B. Approximately 6,000 people live in Milola A and B. The main ethnic groups are Mwera, Ngindo, Makonde, and Yao. The majority of households (92 percent) earn a living by growing sesame, rice, and maize on small farming plots. Due to limited inputs and market access, agricultural production is low. A new temporary clinic hut in the sub-village of Ngwenya is helping ensure this community has access to basic healthcare. Findings from a water quality and system study is helping TPP address issues with water scarcity. Teacher trainings and the presence of DUCE student teachers in Milola schools have improved the quality of education. Chicken raising and sunflower farming have been introduced as new ways to generate income.
