We're fighting hunger, come with us
Travel with Marcus to Tanzania and see what life is like in the deep field. Visit nutrition centres, see school kids showing up for their daily meals and get a taste of original Masai goat. Welcome to 'On the road' in Tanzania.
See the green field of onions that has recently appeared in the dry Rift valley thanks to a new irrigation system. Needless to say, WFP had a hand in it. Go with Marcus as he learns how the system has delighted the local community and as he samples some Masai goat meat.
Get a taste of what it’s like going to a primary school in rural Tanzania. Marcus finds that some kids, after walking to school each day, then walk 6 km more just to get the water needed to cook their lunch. But, on the plus side, he also finds that WFP school meals mean many more kids move on to secondary education.
At any given moment, 800 trucks, 70 planes and 30 ships are transporting WFP food somewhere or other. Marcus explores the port in Dar Es Salaam, where much of the food for east Africa arrives, and see how much food is needed to feed a million people for a month.
Marcus goes to Tageta, north of Dar Es Salaam. Here he meets Prisca, a woman living with HIV who a few years ago was so weak she couldn't even lift a bucket. Now, she is perfectly able to farm her land and care for her son. Find out how.
Discover how WFP nutrition programmes work as Marcus goes to a village where drought has made the daily struggle against malnutrition even harder. He shows you how choosing crops wisely can make all the difference in these situations. And finally, if you’re interested, he is also chased by a tortoise.
