Women Fund Tanzania Trust (WFT-Trust) is a pioneering feminist fund based in Dar es salaam that was registered in September 2008 as an NGO and transformed into a Trust in September 2019. The Fund is guided by its vision of an equal and just society where empowered women, girls, and children participate fully in the transformation of their communities for empowerment and gender justice. Thus, the Fund supports initiatives that promote enhanced capacities of the women’s and girls’ movements to organize and mobilize collectively with actors whose diversity is based on age, gender, ethnicity, class, ability, or immigration status. This year WFT Trust is prioritizing funding initiatives addressing women’s, girls’, and children’s rights in the following thematic areas which include initiatives promoting the intersectionality of women’s and girls’ agendas and approaches with other social justice movements and sectors.
