Tushikane visits ERBACHER Foundation and speaks about land grabbing in Tanzania
Joachim Schmitt first visited Tanzania in 1993. When he went back to revisit the country, the people and familiar places in 2010, he took his wife and children along. He spoke to people, observed and listened closely. He quickly realized that there was something wrong. “At some places in the country, one would notice a sort of strange irritation.” He couldn’t sleep peacefully any longer. “In turn for a chicken presented to us by a Tanzanian farmer, we wanted to give our thanks by conducting a survey in the country.” This resulted in the foundation of the Tushikane association and a lot of voluntary commitment and work for the rural population of Tanzania.
