There is, also, issues of limited or inefficient food storage, lack of a stable infrastructure, and a Iimited availability of receiving credit when times are lean.("Tanzania seeds: Disaster," 2012) In a country where it may only rain 5 times in a given season finding crops that will withstand Tanzania’s drought climate is essential.
Many initiatives have been established to participate in solving this problem and improving the agricultural crisis occurring in Tanzania. The Food and Agriculture Organization, FOA, developed the “Disaster Response and Preparedness to Drought” project, donating large quantities of sustainable seeds that will grow into healthy crops. They, also, set up a trade market allowing framers to gain vouchers, based on their economic need, and provided them with, not only seed, but also, tools and farm implements, which, of course, will make planting and harvesting of their crops more efficient and, likely, more successful. In turn, the crops these farmers now plant will produce more sustainable seeds that these farmers can then sell at trade fairs in other parts of the country. ("Tanzania seeds: Disaster," 2012) Global Services Corps is an organization that gathers volunteers who are interested and eager to travel to countries, like Tanzania, with a program called the “Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security Services Learning Program.” As a volunteer with this program, participants will help in the teaching of communities in positive and sustainable agricultural solutions. The volunteers will interact with the local peoples to learn bio-intensive agriculture, like composting and small organic farming, sack gardens, a means for families with limited space to grow a garden that will improve their diets, poultry vaccinations, and catching rainwater. There are two, particularly, important lessons valuable to the people of Tanzania. The first, is implementing improved grain storage, which prevents unnecessary grain loss. The second,
