ABOUT 150 km from the port of Tanga is Sakharani Farm in the Usambara Mountains. In 1946, the community in Ndanda bought a reasonably large portion of land in this area from an Englishman. This land was to be used for agricultural purposes. Its altitude of 1300m makes Sakharani suitable for growing different kinds of plants, namely: quinine trees, macadamia nuts, coffee, bananas and grapes. All these activities provide employment for many people. The community consists of about five confreres who, apart from farm work, engage themselves in pastoral work in the parishes of Sakharani, Soni and the surrounding outstations. Other activities include a small auto workshop, carpentry and gardening. Sakharani is also used as a rest house for many visitors as well as a meeting point for the young people who show an interest in joining the community in Ndanda. For more about Sakharani click here.
