Surrounded by mountains in Tanzania’s rural Babati District, Sangara is a village of small-scale farmers raising crops like maize, beans and peas. Bicycles and motorcycles, locally known as ‘boda-boda’ are used as a means of transport for people and goods. Some use donkeys to transport jerry cans filled with water from nearby villages. People in the village are experiencing more frequent water scarcity as a result of poor infrastructure planning and the effects of climate change.
