Working in partnership with the Government of Tanzania (GOT), USAID/Tanzania provided technical assistance to Tanzania’s public and private sector institutions through the Tanzania Participant Training Program (PTP).

PTP was a five-year program supporting USAID programming across four priority sectors – democracy and governance, education, health, and natural resource management – to achieve their objectives by providing flexible, customized participant training and capacity development. Through short-term training, Tanzanian professionals in all sectors developed the skills and knowledge to lead the capacity development process, which will lead to improved performance at Tanzanian institutions. The program champions activities within core sectors that will strengthen the partnership between Tanzanian and U.S. institutions, thereby directly contributing both to USAID/Tanzania’s efforts to strengthen Tanzania’s resource base and the GOT’s development goals. The services offered under PTP are applicable to all USAID programs and can be used as a model to scale-up training activities to involve all areas of focus and the full range of target participants.
