The IMARIKA project is a multifaceted rural development project in the Iringa region of Tanzania, run by Emmanuel International (EI) in partnership with the Anglican Diocese of Ruaha (DR).
Imarika impacts rural households who are subsistence farming families struggling to make a living on increasingly depleted soils affected by environmental degradation and climate change. The IMARIKA Project addresses these real needs to improve local agriculture, environment, and livelihoods through several complimentary activities. Phase 2 will benefit 15 villages, thereby improving the livelihood of 375 households. Phase 1 improved the livelihood of 250 households.
