An evidence-based study of the impact of church and community mobilisation in Tanzania

Church and Community Mobilisation (CCM) approaches have been implemented across a range of the 35 countries in which Tearfund works with its partners. This includes Tanzania, where CCM approaches have been implemented by Tearfund’s partners over the past eight years. Changes in the communities and churches have started to be evident and therefore warranted further investigation. This summary presents research undertaken in north-west Tanzania in 2013, exploring the impact of the CCM approach in bringing change to the lives of communities.. 

The CCM programme was initiated by Tearfund in 2013 and supported by seven of its partners. External consultants were commissioned to work with Tearfund in Tanzania to apply a quasi-experimental evaluation of the impact of the CCM programme.
