As both a global research institute and a leading international development organization, RTI combines our project implementation and technical expertise with those of our partners to co-create smart, shared solutions for a more prosperous, equitable, and resilient world. 

For nearly 30 years, we have collaborated with clients and partners in Tanzania to advance sustainable, multi-sectoral solutions for the most difficult development challenges. In all that we do, we strive for transformative change built on equity and inclusion. 

Our experience and recent project implementation include:

Education in Tanzania

  • The  Jifunze Uelewe Activity is working to advance safe and inclusive education in Tanzania, scale up pre-primary education, and build Tanzania’s capacity to sustain these gains over the long term.

Energy in Africa

  • The Power Africa Empowering East and Central Africa project is helping countries develop their ​​renewable energy sources and scale on- and off-grid energy solutions to fuel inclusive, low-carbon economic growth.  It is expected to provide 50 million people access to new or improved electricity generated from cleaner fuel sources. 
  • The Power Africa Off-Grid Program is increasing energy access for over 4.5 million households in 26 African countries, facilitating the sale of over 69,000 productive use of energy systems and electrification of 230 health facilities, and working with over 600 off-grid energy companies to improve operations through market-based strategies.
  • The East Africa Energy Program is connecting over 4 million new customers to the electric grid in 10 East African countries, including Ethiopia; supporting the commissioning of 500 megawatts (MW) of added power capacity; and mobilizing over $875 million in investments in the East African power sector.

Environment in Tanzania

Health in Tanzania

  • Through the Act to End Neglected Tropical Diseases| East programs, we empower governments of endemic countries to lead national NTD control programs and scale up the delivery of preventive chemotherapy for the seven most common NTDs.
  • Under the Okoa Maisha Dhibiti Malaria (OMDM)—Save Lives, End Malaria project, we worked to promote programmatic integration, local ownership, capacity strengthening, and maximize data for decision-making to reduce the overall burden of malaria and move Tanzania closer to elimination.
  • The Global Adult Tobacco Survey is standardizing surveillance and monitoring processes to measure worldwide tobacco use.
