USAID-TAPP increased smallholder incomes, improved nutrition, and expanded markets through agricultural innovation and commercialization. The program worked with nearly 300,000 individuals, helping them achieve gross margins of $3,900 per hectares, and supported the establishment of 10,700 home and community gardens, providing technical support and education on growing and cooking with nutritious foods.
USAID-TAP worked in conjunction with the Tanzania Horticultural Association (TAHA), private-sector exporters, and government agencies to increase airfreight service through Kilimanjaro International Airport. TAHA, with support from USAID-TAP, established a grower-owned freight consolidation company that facilitated shipments to Europe. Over the course of the two-year project, nearly 1,000 tons of Tanzanian produce left from Kilimanjaro airport.
