Women Programs Development

Art in Tanzania supports and develops village women's initiatives. The main activities are vocational training including English, IT, entrepreneurship, women's rights, and related subjects. We are also developing medical services and health information sessions. Tanzania has a large group of young mothers in the villages that have little or no education and are without financial support. Areas that are often heavily populated, which complicate the strive of livelihood and provision for these Mother’ children.
Most women lack the opportunity to reach education to fund and develop small businesses. Additionally, many of these women are under-empowered or unaware of their basic human rights, thus making young mothers vulnerable to abuse. Art in Tanzania is focusing to deliver skills for women to start their own small businesses and to create markets for their products. At the same time, we educate women's rights and related subjects so that women will learn their rights in problem situations. We focus to be both innovative and effective.
Work with women is underfunded but Art in Tanzania has multi-professional interns and volunteers to assist. We use teamwork to create opportunities. One can teach how to start horticulture and one can look for the markets. The base effort is to increase the small business skills through the educational approach and to increase awareness. We give visibility of women's issues through social media for the Tanzanian general population.
