General

We Effect have submitted an application for a one-year contribution of SEK 4,000,000 from 2017 to 2018. The support is aimed to assume an interim role as in waiting for the Land Tenure Support Programme (LTSP) CSO basket which is expected to be up and running in 2018 after lengthy delays. The support aims to ensure higher involvement of women through the promotion of gender equality in relation to women equal rights and access to land. The support offered by We Effect will be crucial in rural Tanzania where the patriarchy system is dominant which has resulted in the situation on the ground being not as good as the legal provisions on paper. Additionally, women tend to not be as aware as men of land registration possibilities, nor have the legal literacy necessary to claim the enforcement of their rights. Overall, the support will also play a part in enabling We Effect reach its strategic goal by 2021 of becoming Sweden's top actor and promoter of development work in support of gender equality within sustainable rural settings, plus seeing that that women with We Effect's partner organisations have the same right as men to have access to financial resources and the opportunity to own and Control land.

Objectives

The intervention aims to promote gender equality in relation to women's equal right and access to land as means of insuring that women have the same right as men to have access to financial resources and the opportunity to own and control land a largely patriarchal rural setting in the districts of Kilombero, Ulanga and Malinyi. As a participant in the LTSP, We Effect will focus on (1) Raising awareness and strengthening participation, consultation and representation and (2) Capacity building at all levels to ensure that the processes are sustainable and can be expanded to country-wide level.
