rates, as well as other attached conditions; Only 2.3% of urban
residents can afford mortgaged housing valued at USD. 58,000; 4.5 % of
urban households afford mortgaged properties costing USD. 38,500; 18% of
urban households can afford housing costing USD. 19,300 and so

1.1 About Habitat for Humanity Tanzania
for Humanity Tanzania (HFHT) is a national NGO affiliated to Habitat
for Humanity International (HFHI) .Since 1986, HFHT HFHT has been
working in coordination with local communities and varied partners on a
range of shelter-related programs including building, reconstruction,
training, lending, disaster response and mitigation.
HFH brand in
Tanzania is positively associated with improving the standard of living
for low-income families through enhancing access to decent and
1.2 Main programs implemented by HFHTAffordable Housing programme
1986, HFHT worked with communities and local authorities to support
design and development of various housing projects. The first housing
products were in Kasulu in Kigoma. The project was then expanded to
other regions including Dar es Salaam (Majimatitu-Mbagala), Tabora
(Nzega and Nkinga), Dodoma ( Mvumi), Tanga (Korogwe), Iringa
(Uhambingetu), Ruvuma (Liuli/Mbinga), Morogoro (Ifakara), Mwanza and
Zanzibar. HFHT contributed skilled labour and durable building materials
that were extended to homeowners through subsidized loans. The
homeowners contributed unskilled labour and local materials. The program
however experienced some challenges including slow growth and poor loan
recovery leading to its closure between 2008 and 2010. Some affiliates
under this programme were transferred to other institutions, one being
Tanzania Gatsby Trust (TGT) and some SACCOS. Others were sold at
discounted prices and while others were dissolved/written-off.Housing
Micro- Finance services provision
In 2009, HFHT introduced a
Housing Micro Finance product known as “Makazi Bora” to provide housing
micro-loans to low-income households to enable them to live in
affordable and decent houses. This programme was implemented until 2019
when it ceased operations and the loan portfolio was sold at a
discounted rate to former HFHT staff who then registered a Micro Finance
Institution providing financing to enable low-income families live in
affordable and decent houses. The Makazi Bora Finance (MBF) limited is a
HFHT partner that provides financing to cover house repairs, renovation
and finishing. (including roofing, flooring, plastering, painting,
fixing doors and windows and electrical wiring, and auxiliary structures
like water tapes and toilet improvements. This year 2022, the Makazi
Bora Finance (MBF) is working with HFHT to provide group loans to women
and youth groups and HFHT will study the product and document lessons
for sharing widely with stakeholders.Other efforts
Sanitation and Hygiene initiatives (WASH): In 2017 HFHT partnered with
WaterAid Tanzania (WAT) and other stakeholders to install water
infrastructure in Sangara village, in Babati district, benefitting more
than 1900 people. The project portrayed a unique type of partnership and
innovation in terms of composition of partners and expertise ranging
from housing, microfinance, technology, and private sector participation
in water service delivery. One of the outcomes of this project has been
the improvement of housing conditions whereby community members
improved their homes and generated income. It is also anticipated that a
Community Housing Fund will be established through the water user fees.
2020, following the COVID 19 pandemic, HFHT partnered with an NGO-My
LEGACY to support WASH in schools and the community at large, as part of
intensifying personal hygiene for prevention of diseases.
Creation through empowering communities economically: HFHT believes
that home ownership is a long-term investment that has potential to open
up a new world of opportunities. Families are often excluded from
accessing basic services (financial services, utilities etc.) because
they lack proper housing which could serve as an address and a
collateral. Habitat for Humanity commitment for improving people’s
lives, is not only through housing, but also through training in new
skills to diversify livelihoods, and supporting communities to open
their own businesses, and becoming financially independent In this
regard, HFHT is working with MyLEGACY in forming women and youth groups
for skills development focusing on entrepreneurship training so as to
generate income which could enable them afford a better living
environment. The training also focuses on clean energy through making
charcoal using recycled waste.
Policy Advocacy: HFHT is committed
to advocating for relevant policies that affect households in issues
such as housing, land and microfinance. HFHT/Makazi Bora Finance was at
one time the Secretariat of Tanzania Housing Microfinance Working Group
whose main objective is to advocate for better housing and related
matters in the country.
1.3 HFHT Strategic implementation framework
embarked on assessing the housing sector in Tanzania to understand the
status of the housing ecosystem in Tanzania with a view to strategically
define its programmatic engagement in an impactful manner that will add
value to the housing value chain. According to the assessment, rapid
urbanization which contributes to the housing deficit of an estimated 2
mil units (in urban areas), and 7 mil (in rural areas) with an annual
demand of 200,000 units according to 2012 data which does not reflect
the reality on the ground. Only a small proportion of population of
urban households can afford decent housing. There are concerns around
affordable housing such as housing deficit, housing quality and
affordability, land management and regulatory systems for affordable
housing, basic services for affordable housing, housing finance for ow
income households, building materials landscape and design and building
Housing is largely constructed incrementally due to high
costs of building materials and experts, necessitating the engagement of
artisans (fundis) on work packages basis. A number of recommendations
were put forward including engaging in strategic partnerships with
microfinance institutions with the view to rolling out friendly and
affordable products to enable access to housing by low-income
households; exploring the potential of innovative financial products to
support various rental housing models so as to enhance access to
adequate housing; implementing construction of cost-effective and
environmentally friendly housing; partnering in research, training and
awareness campaigns on use of affordable local building materials;
assist in offering technical knowledge and skills in construction of
affordable housing and support to small local institutions (e.g., CCI)
in affordable housing development. These recommendations will pave way
to developing the Strategy for Tanzania
