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’s Fund Tanzania and the Tanzania Gender Networking Programme (TGNP). This component implemented by the TGNP aims to reach over 100 national, regional, district and local WROs in Tanzania. TGNP’s focuses on capacity building for WROs, developing their leadership and technical skills, knowledge of feminist principles, political education and strategic abilities, in order to disseminate effectively transformative feminist principles in their communities to promote positive change. TGNP also works to promote network and alliance-building to strengthen their voices and support systems, by bringing together dozens of national and sub-national organizations across Tanzania to advance key rights issues.
