Objectives

Organisational gender audits have been undertaken for six partner organisations in Tanzania (Mviwata Arusha, Mviwata Kilimanjaro, TAHEA, Mwanza rural housing, TAFSUS and SHTG). The partner has further sensitized leaderships of these organisations on gender equality. Further, the partner has supported awareness sessions on women land rights, women empowerment and youth (especially) females participation in development initiatives. As a result of engaging religious and cultural leaders, some men have accepted to give their daughters inheritance. Generally, women are receiving more space to get empowered to pursue their passions especially where core partners work in pastoral communities which are extremely patriarchal. The partner has gathered advocacy issues from the various value chains and is currently developing advocacy plans to ensure that duty bearers are engaged on areas that require their attention.
