Boma Subutuni Traditional House Building

TANZANIA

Subutuni village is situated on the coastal belt of Tanzania where a large percentage of the population are dependent on fishing for their livelihoods. However, due to unsustainable and illegal fishing practices, the industry is close to collapse. The high levels of unemployment in Subutuni has led to chronic widespread poverty and many people have been left homeless when their house falls into disrepair, especially the elderly or infirm.

Currently there are around ten families in immediate need of housing support.
