    • Project

      The Resources Ownership and Leadership Participation for Women & Girls project is implemented in Mkinga and Tanga District Tanzania. These are coastal areas around the Indian Ocean. According to the traditions of the coastal community in the targeted area, women and girls cannot own resources without consulting or getting permission from a man in their family. They are also not free to participate in different community development projects and when they do, they sometimes meet strong opposition from the men. When it comes to education, priority is given to boys and only a few girls go to school. This is from the perception that girls will soon marry and focus only on their marriage and family life.

      From this long term discrimination, women and girls fear and lack confidence in competing and participating in any leadership position within the community and at the village level, therefore, limiting their influence on village development projects. They also have little capacity to compete for any electoral position in within the area.

      The main goal of this project is to improve the knowledge of women and girls in the area so that they can actively participate and make decisions in different community development projects. Specifically, the project is creating awareness on the importance of land and financial resources ownership for women, higher education for girls and women taking up leadership positions in the wards, villages and streets.
