SUCCESS STORIES

WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SHIFT THE POWER WITH OUR GUARANTEES

    “In 2021 we got our first grant from Women Fund Tanzania Trust, which enabled us to start implementation of planned activities. The main goal was to provide awareness to the community about domestic workers and help change the society’s negative perception against them, which leads to cruelty and other forms of abuse. What pushed us the most is that we have been working as domestic workers, hence we know and have lived those challenges” .”

    Beatrice Johnson,
    Executive Director from The Light For Domestic Workers.

    To say the truth, I find it difficult to find the right words to say about me journey with WFT because it is a long journey. What surprised me from the onset was the fact that although our organization was young and without a track record with meagre resources having been established just in 2012 WFT took an interest in our work and accorded us the respect that we thought was reserved for big organizations..”

    Rose Njiro,
    Director from Mimutie Women Organization.

    I come from a family that cruelty against women was open and rampant and the example I like to give is of the history of my own mother who my father abandoned early on while I was six years old. From that time, I witnessed my mother playing multiple roles of parenthood, guardian, my protector, leader and my mentor in my life’s journey. .”
