Country Strategy

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.
