The Diocese of Tarime now has a new sewing centre at Rebu on the outskirts of Tarime town - thanks to our partners in Canada, New Zealand, and Tanzania. This new centre became operational in May 2016. Prior to this the centre was located in Tarime town centre but the room was small.
The aim of the centre which is managed by the Mothers Union (Diocesan Women’s Organization) is to provide opportunity to more girls to learn practical skills in order to empower them socially and economically.
The new centre can accommodate one hundred students (100) the majority of whom are ex-primary school girls as well as those who complete secondary education but cannot proceed to high school or college for various reasons. Over three hundred young girls have acquired sewing skills since the centre started in 2012.

Many young girls in Tarime tend to marry below the age of eighteen (18). Female circumcision (female genital circumcision - FGM) a rite of passage that is common in the area and economic hardship propels girls into under-age marriage.
The course duration has been reduced from eleven months to six months (intensive) to enable the centre to enroll students twice a year. The fee is only $10 per month, yet man parents are too poor to pay this amount. Occasionally the diocese provides scholarships to poor girls and orphans but find it challenging to do this every year.

New Church Buildings in Tarime
The Diocese of Tarime has completed building brand new church buildings at nine (9) locations with roofs, and have roofed 5 buildings whose construction started before Tarime area became a Diocese in 2010. This achievement is a result of a partnership scheme between the parishes, the Bishop and our overseas partners. In this scheme, the congregation erects the wall, and the Bishop finds money for the roof. In some cases the congregation is too poor to complete the construction of the wall so the Bishop contributes funds for the completion of the wall and for the roofing costs.
Churches that now have new places of worship are Nyangoto, Bunchari, Bugumbe Nyakunguru, Mangucha, Nyabitocho, Gamasara, Nyagisya, Buhemba, Rebu, Nkongore, Nyarwana, Kerende, Mogabiri.
Commenting on this extraordinary success, the Bishop of Tarime, Dr Mwita Akiri said, ‘I am very grateful to our congregations and partners (Anglican churches and individuals) in Canada, UK, New Zealand and Tanzania who have contributed funds and continue to do so to support our mission in Tarime.”
Construction of new churches is underway at Nyamwigura and Nyansurura churches.
