The idea of Ujamaa emerged from the writing and speeches of Tanzania’s first president, Julius K Nyerere, from the late s and into the s. Usually translated as “familyhood,” it was a form of African socialism that blended broadly conceived socialist principles with a distinctly “communitarian” understanding of African societies, and a strong commitment to egalitarian societies.

Tanzania's ujamaa villages: the implementation of a rural development strategy Dean E. McHenry Institute of International Studies, University of California, - Social Science - pages. Tanzania is the only country of the four in which collectivization is actively taking place; its institutional forms are the Ujamaa villages.

Their immediate prototype was the self-help settlements established by the TANU Youth League (i.e., the youth wing of the sole political party, the Tanganyika African National Union) just prior to, and for.

Tanzania was not suffering from overpopulation in the late s or s, but the fact that ujamaa would concentrate dispersed rural populations into villages where the government would theoretically be providing comprehensive social services contributed to the Bank’s hopes that Tanzania could become a model for addressing poverty and.

InI spent a couple of months in two Ujamaa villages in Tanzania. The Ujamaa system was introduced by Julius Nyerere in the early s, and the World Bank effectively killed it as a system in the late 80s, although a few independent Ujamaa villages survived into the 90s.

I'm going to briefly describe my experiences there, and especially the idea. Thus, as President Julius Nyerere of Tanzania in his discussion of Ujamaa says, Ujamaa is "based on the assumption of human equality, on the belief that it is wrong for one [person] to dominate or exploit another, and on the knowledge that every individual hopes to live in a society as a free [person] able to lead a decent life, in conditions.

The smell of Ujamaa is still there Book Summary: Fifty years after the Arusha Declaration, this book sets out to reevaluate one of the most important roots of Tanzania's Ujamaa Socialism: The Ruvuma Development Association.

Based on a basic-democratic movement of young politicized farmers, this organization not only brought together up to 18 cooperative villages in southwestern Tanzania, it.

This thesis addresses the question of what Nyerere’s particular version of Ujamaa (socialism) is. It answers that question by focusing on themes which surround and feed into Ujamaa, in order to provide its conceptual account. The thesis is an account of the ideology of Ujamaa in both theory and practice.

Thus, while the writings of Nyerere. This chapter describes how Nyerere’s concept of ujamaa (familyhood) villages morphed into villagization—compulsory living in villages enforced by the state.

The early ujamaa villages, such as those of the Ruvuma Development Association described in an appendix to this chapter—were small and voluntary and used communal labour to share risks and achieve economies of scale. It was a distillation of ujamaa, exemplifying egalitarian solidarity, reliance on Tanzania’s own resources, and hard work for the common good.

But this official image hid a much less sunny side of Tanzanian socialism. Nyerere thought ujamaa villages would be a real draw for the country’s dispersed population. Once rural Tanzanians saw that. Through villagization, thousands of Tanzanians were relocated to Ujamaa (socialism) villages.

Although villagization in Tanzania was originally Author: Kim Dionne. that the policy of creating ujamaa villages has failed in terms of what they had been designed to achieve: namely, the building of a socialist society in the rural areas of Tanzania where more than 90 per cent of the population lives.

In this article I shall mainly be concerned about the ujamaa aspect. It was ideal in principle, but the way it was enforced shows it was not effective in practice.

This paper will focus on the implementation of Ujamaa villages from the beginning in with the Arusha Declaration until when rural Tanzania was comprised of approximately 7, Ujamaa villages (Schneider ).

Anne Jansen in do not have an index heading for ujamaa villages, but do have one for "ujamaa" with items listed under each, several of which are relevant to ujamaa villages. Volkhard Hundsdorfer and Wolfgang Kuper's bibliography published in contains a sub- section on ujamaa villages containing 44 items (pp.

Rather than questioning this policy, NGOs working in the area (as typified by Oxfam) became surrogates of the state, helping to carry out the program.This system ultimately, as Noosim describes, has a low take up and devolved into a scenario where people were forced into the Ujamaa villages in an effort to realise the project.

With this in mind it is important to understand that the economic project of Tanzania is explicitly linked to the policy of “Education for self-reliance”.
