HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation (HELVETAS) is an independent Swiss development organization (Swiss INGO) actively contributing to improvement of the living conditions and status of economically poor and socially disadvantaged people in more than 33 developing countries. In its program in Tanzania, HELVETAS has been implementing development initiatives in two thematic fields of Skills Development and Education (SDE) and Sustainable and Inclusive Economics (SIE) through various projects including Hifadhi Nafaka Salama (Save Safe Food), a 3-year (August 2019 – September 2022) postharvest management initiative funded by Danida Market Development Partnerships (DMDP) in Rukwa, Katavi and Morogoro Regions.
Also locally known as Hifadhi Nafaka Salama, It is among the HELVETAS Tanzania initiatives to empower smallholder farmers to store maize grains in a safe manner and as the result; creates employment for youth, strengthens food security and income among rural farming communities in the country. The project is implemented in collaboration with the two commercial partners (A to Z Textile Mills Limited and Pee Pee Tanzania Limited), two Regional Administrative Secretary (RAS; Rukwa and Katavi) and nine Local Government Authorities (LGAs).
The project aims to promote improved postharvest management (PHM) for maize, including large-scale adoption of tarpaulin and hermetic bags to store maize in a safe manner. The commercial objective is to enable two manufacturers of hermetic bags (AtoZ and PPTL) to establish sustainable supply systems, thus generating employment and income opportunities along the input and distribution value chain. The project will directly contribute to SDG Goal 8.2 to achieve higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation.
