The community served by 4CCP is endowed with different economic activities due to their differences in culture, Hadzabe are naturally hunters and gatherers, Datooga are still involving themselves in large scale livestock keeping, Iraqws are doing large scale agriculture while the Bantu community is practicing mixed economy.
Towards addressing the economic challenges in this diverse community, the following are key activities.
Economic growth and development issues go adjacent with the rising of the level of awareness of the community on what they should do as well as how accountable the government should be given the taxes and duties paid by the citizens.

Water is the major challenge in the 4CCP catchment area, hygiene and sanitation issues has also been the major challenges, all leading to tremendous problems in community such as cholera, dysentery, amoeba, diarrhea and typhoid.
The proposed intervention on water supply aims to improve the health of 50,228 people through increasing access to clean and safe water, and improving the hygiene and sanitation practices of local communities in ten villages of Mkalama, Mbulu and Hanang districts, Tanzania. In Mkalama, Mbulu and Hanang districts district only 25% and 35% respectively of the population have access to potable water and people frequently use open shallow wells, which are vulnerable to contamination. Lack of water supply is having a significant impact on the quality of education due to the time lost by teachers and pupils collecting water from long distances, as well as having a detrimental impact on hygiene in schools. 50% of people who visited health centre in the past year have been diagnosed as suffering from water borne diseases.
This project targets at drilling and installing boreholes, solar powered water projects near primary schools, villages and communities. Towards bringing a sense of ownership and accountability and sustainability, each village contributes to the project by providing initial capital, labour and materials and once the project is completed the facilities will be overseen by Community Owned Water Supply Organizations (COWSOs), who receives training in project management and water facility maintenance. The COWSOs is responsible for collecting a nominal user fee for the water and for maintaining the facilities. So far we have 24 active COWSO with one 15 established water points.
