This study provides an overview of the sale and scope of Christian and Muslim organizations' development activities in Tanzania. Systematic information on the nature, scale and development activities of FBOs in unavailable. The research in 2008-9 was based on semi-structured interviews with a snowball sample of key informants from nearly fifty religious and other organisations, but also drew on the limited NGO directories available, a 1993 survey of NGOs in nine districts and other secondary sources. The study reveals a wide variety of organizational arrangements, including faith-based charitable, relief and development organizations that are registered as NGOs or societies, and many development activities carried out by religious organizations (e.g. dioceses) and individual congregations (churches and mosques).
