    • Project

      Bahari HUB Yetu, Ukombozi wa Wanawake project aims to transform women’s challenges through empowerment in their fisheries related activities to overcome the challenges based on technical, knowledge, gender, socio-cultural and religious barriers through establishment of Bahari Hub. We are developing Bahari hub to model local innovations for fisheries practices to generate revenue and close thedisparities faced by women. In this hub we will conduct ocean culture training to fisher women involving artists,record 1 documentary with 4 series videos in four coastal communities for breaking the silence on social-cultural and religious barriers, organize for the first-ever fisherwomen and conduct an art campaign of painting 40 fishing boats with coastal Swahili sayings will be conducted addressing the sociocultural, religious barrier and negative concepts of feminism to enhance participation and collaboration between men and women in fisheries

      The grant applied to AFO will support the implementation of Bahari HUB Yetu, Ukombozi wa Wanawake project. This project through the hub will create artifacts from oceans’ unseen treasures that inspires and promote unification; The Innovation hub will create an arts for change campaign that will mark the 40 boats artistically by written phrases that encourages participation of women in fisheries activities, drawn paintings by well trained articulated artists from the established women fishers groups showcasing the unwanted social norms in fisheries that widen the gender gap, hinder freedom and participation of women in fisheries activities.

      The activities that will be implemented in this project include a baseline and endline Survey will be conducted to identify the socio-cultural and religious barriers alongside feminism concepts and its impacts on fully participation of women in fisheries prior and after the project implementation in Kilwa, Mafia, Paje-Zanzibar and Msasani fishing community members, For Oceanculture training – 4 artists will be recruited to conduct two pieces of training of which at least 48 women (12 from each coastal community women group) will be trained on painting and making of hand made artifacts from ocean-related materials and swimming skills. Video documentary- 1 documentary with 4 series videos will be produced from the selected four coastal communities to break the silence on socio-cultural and religious barriers holding women back from fully participating in fishing activities. For fisherwomen festival- More than 400 participants (men and women) will be engaged during the Fisher Women Festival aiming at strengthening freedom of expression and visibility of the fisherwomen, the festival will run in the 4 selected coastal communities where recorded video documentary will be screened publicly to stimulate conversations, followed by “fish cook competition” where the women will compete on how innovatively they can use own cultural recipes to make and garnish food/fish dishes (using ocean arts), and winners will be awarded; this will be a motivation for these women to feel recognized and appreciated
