Devex Examines Holistic Approaches To Family Planning, Resiliency, Sustainability In Tanzania

“…[Community health worker Happiness Chacha’s] work is a result of the Endangered Ecosystems Northern Tanzania, a project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development that aims to make both people and wildlife more resilient to threats like climate change and population growth.
