Misingi ya Usawa wa Jinsia Katika Katiba Pendekezwa-01

Jedwali - 2015

Kwa nini kuwepo na dai la misingi ya usawa wa jinsia katika katiba?

Uwepo wa dai la misingi imara ya usawa wa jinsia katika Katiba Mpya, inatokana na ukweli kwamba historia ya mapambano dhidi ya mifumo kandamizi, wanawake wamekuwa wakishiriki bega kwa bega na wanaume. Hata hivyo mara zote, ushindi unapopatikana, wanawake wamekuwa wakisukumwa pembezoni kwa madai kwamba hawana uwezo wa kushika hatamu za utawala.

ANNUAL REPORT 2013

Since its launch in September, WFT has been able to expand its database of potential grantees as well as like- minded organizations with which they could go into partnerships, networking, learning and sharing with each other. While this has raised more expectations on WFT, it is a situation which has been resulting in making WFT publicly known as the first Women’s Fund for promotion of women’s rights issues in the country. The organisation also benefited from starting new communication and strengthening relationships with potential and existing funders inside and outside Tanzania.

ANNUAL REPORT 2012

The National Convening was attended by more than 110 women from selected national and local women’s rights organizations and took place from 22-24 October 2012. It aimed at providing a safe space for articulating key women’s rights/feminist issues and for strategizing on how to make these central to the ongoing constitutional review agenda and processes in the country. It also turned out to be an important event that not only highlighted WFT’s agenda in the country, but also enabled participants to build consensus on key feminist/women’s rights issues for advocating as a movement in ongoing debates and public opinion seeking processes regarding the new constitution.
