Tanzania is a strong multi-party republic and one of the most stable countries in East Africa. However, it still faces important political and social challenges, including the marginalization of youth and women, violent extremism, and high levels of poverty — only partially mitigated by recent investments in mining and policy reforms.
We have been working in Tanzania and Zanzibar since 2010. In partnership with local journalists, civil society leaders, and members of the government, we strive to promote gender equality, foster good governance, and encourage greater objectivity in the media. Recently, we have also turned our attention to promoting sustainable business practices in the mining industry, creating interfaith dialogue, reducing violence against women, and encouraging peaceful collaboration between government and civil society.
