Tanganyika Christian Refugee Service (TCRS) has since its establishment, in 1964, been involved in
managing refugee settlements and camps for refugees and other asylum seekers in Tanzania. The
organization has equally been reaching out to engage in work with the marginalized and vulnerable poor
communities in several Tanzanian districts.
In 2004, TCRS adopted a significant policy shift from the traditional emphasis on service provision to an
empowerment approach, in both Tanzanian and refugee community interventions. As part of its global
policy for building national capacities, LWF/DWS facilitated a transition process which in January 2006
culminated into enabling TCRS to formally become an independent and autonomous Tanzanian-registered
NGO, governed by a local Board of Trustees. All these events open promising possibilities for extending and
further developing the Tanzania program.
