    Tuzo Ya Hakuna Chetu Bila Sisi! 

    NOthing about us, Without Us! Award for Tanzania

    In light of the principle of NOthing about us, Without Us”, Voice in Tanzania wishes to give recognition, through this award, to inspiring inclusive initiatives, with and by Tanzanian organisations, working to promote inclusion and diversity to trigger (self) empowerment of marginalised and excluded groups and communities. 

    For this reason, Tuzo Ya Hakuna Chetu Bila Sisi! is meant for initiatives that are led by and have been fully developed by the rightsholder groups and/or communities themselves to promote/demand their inclusion in society. In particular, such initiatives should be about the promotion of: 

    • Improved access to (productive) resources (finance, land and water) and employment 
    • Improved access to social services, health and education in particular 
    • Improved spaces for political participation and citizen engagement 

    These initiatives should be led by one or more of the following groups and/or communities: 

    • People with disabilities 
    • Women facing exploitation, abuse, and/or violence 
    • Age-discriminated vulnerable groups, notably the young and the elderly 
    • Indigenous groups and/or ethnic minorities 

    Strong preference will be given to initiatives that are able to demonstrate credible instances of intersectionality with at least one or two other rightsholder groups, including youth and women as a cross-cutting component. 

    This is a localised version inspired by the global NOWUs! Awards, a joint partnership between Voice and the Spindle. You can read more about it through this blog here https://voice.global/blog/the-now-us-awards-reflections/ and project details of one of the winning initiatives here https://voice.global/grantees/access-nigeria/#project for inspiration!  

    Who can apply?

    • You have a track record on being inclusive in your ways of working.
