Land is a very important resource for people’s development, we depend on land to produce food, more than 80% of Tanzanians are employed on agricultural sector mainly depending on land in order to achieve their productivity. According to Mwalimu Nyerere, Land is among the paramount requirement for people to develop. Despite of the fact that every individual has an interest to land either direct or indirect, many people residing in Malolo ward does not know the legal aspects under which they own or they can own land, that has been a challenge for the community in using land for economic development especially in rural areas. The author of this work conducted this project in Malolo ward within Tabora Municipality after conducting a participatory Community Needs Assessments in Malolo ward. The main purpose of this project is to provide answers and sustainable solutions to people of Malolo when their land rights are in questions. It is in the researchers believe that, once people of Malolo will fully understand the systems of land administration, they will be able to fully utilize the land for sustainable development. People shall be able to register their land and use it as collateral to acquire capital for development investments. This work enabled the community in various groups of walks to determine their land rights and manners to enforce or claim the rights when violated by individuals as well as the Government. Bodies vested with powers to administer land matters shall also clearly understand their obligations through which the community will be able to mainstream lands in their own development as provided by the laws of Tanzania (Land Act No.4 &5). In order to sustain this efforts and plans, the researcher worked hand in hand with a local based organization (JSDV) with its headquarters in Tabora which has adequate resources and technical capacity.
