Mission

Tanzania is rich in resources; however, the vast majority of Tanzanians are poor! 

Despite the growth of the Tanzanian economy and the country's impressive macro-economic performance over the past decades*, poverty remains prevalent. Approximately 30 million people - about 75% of the total population - live in rural households, and constitute 80% of the country's poor.**

Based on 2007 estimates, 36% of households live below "the basic needs poverty line," earning less than $1 a day, while 20% of the total population live "below the food poverty line."

In years past, the strong engagement and sustained efforts of both local and International forces have resulted in several significant improvements with tangible results: 

In years past, the strong engagement and sustained efforts of both local and International forces have resulted in several significant improvements with tangible results: 

  •  Infant mortality in Tanzania has fallen by nearly 50%, from 99 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1999 to 51 in 2010.

  • The under-age-five mortality rate has also declined, from 146 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1999 to 81 in 2010.

  • In education, net primary school enrollment is up more than 40%, from 59% in 2000/01 to 95.4% in 2009.

  • In the Health Sector, efforts have been geared towards increasing 'access to' and improving the 'quality of' health services.

  • The HIV prevalence rate has slightly declined in recent years but remains high, with an estimated adult (aged 15-49) HIV prevalence rate of 5% to 6%.

Overall, Tanzania's rank in the United Nations Development Programme's ((UNDP) Human Development Index has improved since 1995.

Goals

Among the various challenges addressing growth and poverty eradication, agricultural productivity needs to be increased to raise the poor above the poverty line and ameliorate the competitiveness of commercial agro-processing. Also, primary school completion, maternal health, malnutrition, and environmental sustainability are among the several areas that need significant improvements. 

In order to address these challenges, we at MIBOS undertake and promote development programs in Agriculture, Education, Health Care and the Environment, as well as Income Generation and Capacity Building training. By providing assistance to particularly vulnerable populations, we do our best to help them re-establish and regain their human dignity. To that end, we are also growing our Mission Services.

History

The organization was initiated in 1998 in the name of the International Good Samaritan Mission. However, to better reflect its name and vision, the organization was changed to Mission for Improvement and Boosting Organizational Services to the community.

Mibos is headquartered in Kigoma, and has its branch offices in Mwanza and Arusha provinces. Mibos is primarily dedicated into the eradication of poverty and development of spiritual services including evangelism and development projects aimed at improving the livelihood of vulnerable people. 

MIBOS undertakes and promotes a variety of development projects aimed at improving the livelihood of vulnerable people. Our projects range from health care, income generation, and nutrition improvement, as well as 'capacity building' training to enhance managerial and leadership skills. 

We encourage agricultural production and help the community to respond to market demand. MIBOS also aims to ensure food security, and to this end, participates in policy analysis, advocacy, and lobbying. In addition, MIBOS takes part in tree planting in villages and runs environmental conservation activities in 45 villages, including the provision of training for environmental officers and improvement of the water supply. 

On a daily basis, MIBOS works with fishermen, farmers, orphans, widows, single mothers and street children as well as people with disabilities.
