Tukaone Projects has Purchased the 15 Acre Rice Farm!!!

On March 10, 2017, TuKAoNe Projects Ltd. Manager, Johnny Mansur Mwakalinga completed the purchase of the 15 acre Rice Farm in the Wami-Dakawa area!

Shortly after the purchase, John surveyed the farm and the nearby source of its irrigation water, the Wami River.  Below are some images and an update from Johnny:

We had a very interesting walk and visit to the farms yesterday by our Vendor (Mr. Huhudi), mama Sara`s husband. He is a very nice man and he told us stories of the magic tree in TuKAoNe farms – the tree bear fruits which are called Sausage fruits (the fruit is capable of recording and saving all stories and talks that people make around its tree)..Haha.

The view of the River wami from TuKAoNe is very refreshing, and i wanted to try swimming in it but i was pulled back by Mr. Juhudi telling me i may be killed by hungry crocodiles in a minute! It is dangerous but the indigenous people who had lived by the river for many years could swim in without being eaten by the crocodiles, as it is believed that these natives have a special power and prayers that the crocodile hears!

Attached, please see some pictures of our early activities with the farms… The survey coordinates were already taken and as a matter of regulations under Natural resources and land Management- these coordinates are to be sent to the Ministry for approval and confirmation before issuance of Title Deed. So, we cross our fingers and expect to hear from the Ministry soon.

Greetings from Morogoro, especially from the Crocodos!






TuKAoNe Projects Limited is a Tanzanian company established to promote economic, agricultural, and educational development in Tanzania.  Walk Around the World is a 49% owner of TuKAoNe Projects Limited.

The Mission and Purpose of TuKAoNe Projects Limited is to promote economic development and create self-sustainable communities through agricultural projects, educational projects, and by offering financial assistance to local businesses.

The first project of the Company is an agricultural project, specifically a rice farm in the area of Wami-Dakawa, Tanzania.

The Company had completed Phase 1 of its development plan: 

Phase 1 (Completed Winter 2016-17): Create and register the Company – this phase involved creating, and registering the business, and planning and drafting a business plan.  A Memorandum of Association, Articles of Association, and Registration Certificate from Brella (A registering body in Tanzania) have been prepared, submitted, and approved.  The company business plan has been drafted.  TuKAoNe Projects Ltd. received its Certificate of Incorporation on January 5th, 2017! 

Now Phase 2 of the development plan has been completed!

Phase 2 (Completed Spring 2017): Purchase and receive title to farm land – the former owner of the land, Mama Sara, sold TuKAoNe Projects Ltd. 15 acres of land near the Wami River for 16,500,000 TZS (approximately $8,000).  TuKAoNe Projects entered into a purchase agreement with a down payment of $500 US and the final Land Sale Agreement was signed on March 10, 2017 and the land paid for.

Update: unfortunately, the title to that property was not clear, and, as provided in the Land Sale Agreement, the sellers located other family lands not far away, northwest of Dakawa near the village of Hembeti.  After much negotiation that property has been purchased and we are in the process of acquiring a Title Deed. 

The Company will soon be moving forward with Phase 3 – developing assets and infrastructure for the  farm!
