Tanzania has been the most peaceful country in the region and has been spared the internal strife that has blighted many African states. It has, however, experienced the impact of these conflicts, as it has hosted some of Africa’s largest refugee populations for more than a decade because of the crisis in the Great Lakes area (Tanzania is host to close to one million refugees).
ALARM in Tanzania
Tanzania is one of the world’s poorest countries, with 80 percent of the workforce involved in subsistence agriculture. It is estimated that Christians make up 35 percent of Tanzania’s population, Muslims 13 percent, and other religions and traditional beliefs around 30 percent. Pemba is an area in Tanzania where church strengthening is a high priority. Pemba and other remote areas either have not been evangelized or the churches are weak. ALARM is active in these areas as well as in places where the churches are growing but the leadership is untrained. ALARM is also equipping the churches to deal with the growing presence of Islam.
