Description and results


This project is part of Canada’s Women’s Voice and Leadership Program, which supports local and regional women’s organisations and networks that are working to promote women’s rights, and advance women’s empowerment and gender equality in developing countries. This is done by supporting their activities, building their institutional capacity, and promoting network and alliance-building as women’s rights and feminist organizations are critical agents of change. The Program also responds to the globally recognized, significant gap in funding and support to women’s rights organizations and movements around the world. The project has two components, implemented by two Tanzanian women’s rights’ organizations (WROs), the Women Fund Tanzania and the Tanzania Gender Networking Programme (TGNP). This component implemented by the Women Fund Tanzania (WFT) aims to reach over 100 national, regional, district and local WROs in Tanzania. WFT’s focus is providing small, mid-sized and larger sub-grants to local WROs, along with project management and program delivery training, as well as mentorship throughout the sub-grantees’ project cycle. Grant selection is based on feminist principles, ensuring maximum reach and supporting organizations working on a variety of key sectors including health, education and land rights in different regions of the country. WFT also supports the development of networks and alliances between WROs, coordinated advocacy activities and coalitions on specific issues including sextortion.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved management and sustainability of local women’s rights organizations in Tanzania; (2) enhanced performance of women’s rights organizations’ programming and advocacy to advance gender equality and empower women and girls; and (3) increased effectiveness of sub-national and national women’s rights platforms, networks and alliances to affect policy, legal and social change in Tanzania.
