Diplomatic relations between Denmark and Tanzania were established in the 1960s. Right after, Denmark made a project in Kibaha. In 1970, the Government of Denmark handed over the project to Julius Nyerere, President of Tanzania.[4]
The Kibaha Project marks a recognition by the Nordic peoples of the unity of man. It shows a practical recognition that the wealthier nations of the world have a responsibility to contribute to the development of the poorer nations on terms which recognize human equality and human dignity.
