The following major stakeholders can be identified.
1. The inhabitants of Kilangala and surroundings
Kilangala is located in the Rukwa Region (Tanzania). The area is very suitable for agriculture. The population is, however, very poor. The small farmers do not sufficiently succeed in benefiting from the opportunities that agriculture offers them. It is important to realise that the services that Kilangala Mission provides to the people in the area are of great importance because of a lack of alternatives. The intended cooperative is to become a major vehicle to improve their livelihoods.
2. Those working in the various branches of work
Kilangala Mission altogether employs over 20 people (both men and women) as teachers, supervisors, medical doctors, nurses and assistants. Besides the various employees, the station offers shelter and living quarters to vocational students, orphaned children and kindergarten pupils. Moreover, the small hospital regularly hosts various patients.
