Nevertheless, it is still part of a rite of passage from childhood to womanhood among nomadic communities in Tanzania including Simanjiro district. Towards ending FGM project works with community elders, religious leaders, and other stakeholders to provide an Alternative Rite of Passage (ARP). This is done by maintaining the lessons and eliminating the procedure through awareness creation, peer to peer education, sensitisation meeting among men and women, awareness meetings with religious and community leaders about the deadly effects of FGC to girls.

    • Project

      Empowerment of Marginalized Communities (EMAC) is a Non – Governmental Organization (NGO) established in 2010 as a CBO. It was officially registered in April 2013. The goal of EMAC is to see a society where all the marginalised and vulnerable women and men are free from poverty, health disorders and diseases like HIV and AIDS; have equal opportunities and access to resources for development and participate fully in poverty eradication and decision-making processes.  It is committed to improve justice and equality among vulnerable groups.

      EMAC  focuses  in three thematic areas of Livelihood, environmental conservation, and health. It is a grass root organisation working with communities to identify critical issues affecting them and jointly propose sustainable solutions through locally available resources before seeking external support. EMAC is working through the formation of groups, training them in entrepreneurship skills i.e. beekeeping  and tree planting and linking them with potential sources of markets to sell their produce.
