The majority of Tanzania's population lives in rural areas and experiences extreme poverty. The rural population experiences greater poverty and faces more barriers to escaping the cycle of poverty than urban populations. Several factors influence rural Tanzanians· inability to mobilize and obtain the necessary resources to escape poverty, including the practice of subsistence farming, limited infrastructure, and poor access to education. The consequences of poverty for the rural population include inadequate healthcare services. heightened disadvantages for women, poor nutrition. and increased child labor. Several organizations in Tanzania and nearby countries are working to halt the perpetuation of poverty and mitigate the effects of poverty in rural areas by promoting sustainable agricultural practices. investing in livestock development. and providing health resources.
