HakiElimu (Swahili, meaning ‘Right to Education’) is a registered Non Governmental Organization/Civil Socieity Organization in Tanzania which was established in 2001 by 13 Tanzanian Founding Members. Our history is rooted in the ambition of those founder members – that citizens, if actively involved in education governance, can make a difference in the education sector.
Today, HakiElimu is a leading national expert in education, policy analysis and advocacy and in 2019 the organisation was selected as the overall winner of The African Civil Society Excellence Awards. HakiElimu was also the winner of two categories, ‘Strategic Ability and Adaptability’ and ‘Leadership and Governance’. Our Vision is An open, just and democratic Tanzania where all people enjoy the right to education that promotes equity, creativity and critical thinking.
CAMFED is a pan-African movement, revolutionizing how girls’ education is delivered. Through a gold-standard system of accountability to the young people and communities we serve, we have created a model that radically improves girls’ prospects of becoming independent, influential women.
Our impact increases exponentially through the Association of young women educated with CAMFED’s support. Together, we multiply the number of girls in school, and accelerate their transition to livelihoods and leadership. As the most effective strategy to tackle poverty and inequality, CAMFED multiplies educational opportunities for girls and empowers young women to become leaders of change. Our focus is on girls and young women in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa. This is where girls face acute disadvantage and where their empowerment will have a transformative impact.
Tanzania Gender Networking Programme (TGNP) was formed in 1993 as an activist non-profit organization, and in 2012 was registered as TGNP Mtandao Limited. TGNP emerged through a collective process of critical reflection by leaders of key women’s and gender organizations about the situation of women who are the most exploited and oppressed people within the exploited laboring classes.
TGNP’s Ideology and philosophy is built on Transformative feminism, which is a struggle that aims to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women and other marginalized groups, whether due to class, sex, gender, age, ethnicity, disability, geographical and nationality locations. A goal is to facilitate the transformative feminist movement that influence and contribute to gender responsiveness of policy formulation and implementation in the areas of Agriculture, Water, Health, Education and Extractive Industries, for equitable resource allocation and sustainable livelihoods
