Chasing Dreams, Creating Impact
Welcome to our coffee table book, a unique collection of human interest stories woven from the experiences of beneficiaries from the United Nations’ work in Tanzania. These stories, raw and powerful, serve as a testament to the transformative impact of our work and are an invitation to glimpse into the lives we touch every day. This book is categorized according to the five ‘Ps’ of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – People, Prosperity, Planet, Peace, and Partnerships. These elements form the backbone of the United Nations’ approach to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. Each chapter explores stories under one of these thematic areas, showcasing how our initiatives, developed and implemented in partnership with the Tanzanian Government and communities, have led to meaningful changes. As you turn the pages, you will meet individuals and communities who, with a helping hand from the UN and partners, have embraced challenges, turning them into opportunities, and are actively contributing to the broader vision of Tanzania’s development and the SDGs. This coffee book is not just about the UN’s work; it is a celebration of the strength and spirit of the Tanzanian people. It is a tribute to the communities that we serve, who are the heroes of these narratives, continually inspiring us to strive for a world that leaves no one behind. Welcome to their journey, and ours, towards a brighter, more equitable future.

Voices From the Field - KJP Special Edition
The programme builds upon the ongoing UN development interventions in the region. Through the KJP, the UN, therefore, continues to: Implement an area-based cross-sectoral UN joint programme focused on addressing the root causes of poverty and human insecurity in all its dimensions to enhance the resilience and livelihood of communities living in Kigoma Region. Apply a holistic durable approach to include both refugees, migrants in the region, host communities and host districts. Implement the principles of the New Way of Working (NWOW) which encourages humanitarian and development agencies to work collaboratively based on their comparative advantages, towards ‘collective outcomes’ that reduce need, risk and vulnerability over multiple years. Support the humanitarian-development nexus by linking together the UN’s existing response to refugees and migrants with an expanded development support to the host communities. Support stability and prosperity in the Kigoma region, in turn, contributing to stability in the Great Lakes regional context.
