Country Networks Tanzania

In partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Trust undertook a successful advocacy and planning mission to Tanzania in January 2015. Strategic meetings were held with various state and civil society organisations (CSO’s), including the Ministry of Constitutional and Legal Affairs; the Ministry for Community, Development, Gender & Children; UNICEF Tanzania; UNFPA; University of Dar es Salaam; Twaweza; Children’s Dignity Forum; AMREF and Room to Read amongst others. A critical outcome of the mission was the identification of the Mara Region as a priority area where a series of interventions could be undertaken.
