  • Organisation

    Voice of Encouragement (VET) was founded by nine members (six women and three men) who are passionate about girls and young women’s rights and development in Tanzania. The organisation is managed by independent non-partisan indigenous professionals who have had special trainings in the sectors of humanitarian interventions, human rights, health, child protection and capacity building programmes.

    VET works with adolescent girls and young women in Tanzania, promoting gender equality and addressing young women empowerment issues since its inception. Most projects focus on the issues of violence against women (VAW), capacity building and tackling child marriage and teen pregnancy.

    This results to sensitisation of the parliamentarians on their role in addressing young women rights to participate in political activity, ensuring that more young women have greater political agency and there is recognition of young women in decision-making capacities.

    • Project

      Binti change project creates a platform for young women to access decision-making spaces and take part in political processes.  Young women are either neglected or are afraid of engaging in political activities due to cultural issues and fear. This project strengthens young women including indigenous young women, young women from minority ethnic groups, and young women with disabilities to see opportunities in political activities and decision making, in Tanga and Morogoro regions.

      This is done through identifying 30 girls with leadership traits and conducting 3 days leadership skills training to university and secondary schools female students. After the training the university girl-students are linked to Nguvu ya Mwanamke network and the secondary school girls  form Voice clubs in their respective schools/localities. The participants are sought from indigenous ethnic groups and women with disabilities. Furthermore, the counterpart holds a 1 day discussion meeting between the Tanzania women parliamentarians group and two young women representatives from each region on a mentoring programme for young women’s participation in political engagement. The counterpart works with Furaha ya wanawake wajasiriamali Kwa viziwi Tanzania (FUWAVITA) to meet with women parliamentarians to echo out the issues that young women experience in leadership and politics.
