Abstract

[automatically translated] The development is unbalanced process, operating stress, stimuli, sectoral contradictions and endogenous factors peculiar to a single reality, which require each cooperation project a significant commitment to knowledge and understanding of the role played by factors uncertainty, links and collateral factors for each significant element (social, cultural, economic, political, etc.). This requires, first provide constant reading, without prejudice, of the needs and priorities of beneficiaries through participatory approaches, together with an assessment of development projects that are not entrusted only to universal classifications, based on parameters univocal and often ethnocentric. To achieve a project, in fact, it is essentially a network of relationships with the territory where you want to operate and a significant cultural ties with their community; essential preconditions upon instituted capable of generating communication circuit that dynamic interaction on which the projective relationship implement. This makes a project of international cooperation, first, an intervention of social communication and intercultural dialogue, as such, just part of a construction job activate the communicative field where cooperative relations, in which first operators requested change their normal behaviors and parametric cultural system itself; thus, the headquarters of the intervention community, should open confrontation in the availability of such interaction transform traditional social structure in the direction that the social project identifies. Where development is expanding as much as possible the sphere of freedom of which every human being is the bearer, the final parameter of progress will be made not only for the growth and economic stability, but the quality of life of people, their freedom to make decisions and above all, they could be made. Think about social work in cooperation among countries, it means, first, ask about the very definition of the role and professional roles and about the operational reality that it assumes in a given context, to take what the margins are intervention and possibilities for action and to develop the mandate not detached way of context, but just from it, being always in logic and in order to promote change (Di Rosa, 2013).

Thus it is clear that social work tanzanian, it can not be measured and evaluated according to Western standards of adequacy of interventions on territorial issues, contextualizing the practical and theoretical aspects of consequence. The same concepts of adequacy and necessity are culturally definable concepts and therefore variables nation to nation, even if it is on another continent. In Tanzania, as for some aspects also in Italy, the importance of the figure of the social worker as a promoter of welfare and development for society, it has not yet been fully recognized, neither by the people nor by the institutional context.
