There are few challenges greater than providing individuals and families with the knowledge, tools and resources they need to achieve self–sufficiency, and to contribute to the well-being of their communities. CSSC provides diverse clients with health and education programmes that add value to their lives. All of our stakeholders – member institutions, our clients (health and education), our partners and staff – have benefited from CSSC’s good works.
Strengthening partnership is one of our flagship efforts to help multiply actions to improve peoples’ health and to build stronger relationships with the Government of Tanzania and with development partners.
CSSC is a deliberate joint effort of TEC and CCT. It was established as an ecumenical organization in 1992 to support the provision of social services by the churches in Tanzania. CSSC’s main objectives are to contribute to the physical, mental, social and spiritual development of the Tanzania people by facilitating the provision of quality social services to all people, regardless of colour, race, and creed; and to improve and expand education, health and other social services across the country.
I wish to thank our various stakeholders, the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania, the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MoHCDEC) and Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEVT) in particular, for all their material, financial and in-kind support to CSSC.
CSSC is rapidly growing and receiving increasing recognition and trust from our stakeholders, locally and abroad. Care must be taken to ensure that we broaden our perspective by addressing critical determinants of education and health.
