Everyday Life in Tanzania
Tanzania is a developing country in East Africa. While education is helping to raise the standard of living, for most Tanzanians life is a daily struggle. About 60% are subsistence farmers. Of the remaining 40%, there is a growing professional class, but most are day labourers in cities, living in shanty town neighbourhoods. Informal employment is high which means, overall, tax revenues are low making it difficult for the government to provide social services like education and basic health care.
