To eradicate poverty, inequality and injustices by working with people living in poverty and exclusion and their institutions, partners, alliances, social movements and supporters.
Aid International Tanzania Priorities
Women, who have been disadvantaged for generations and their role as drivers of change has been constrained, need to be empowered to confront unequal power and gender inequalities.
Action Aid Tanzania Politics and economics
People need to become strong drivers of change to promote democratic governance, access quality basic services and effective management of public resources.
Land and climate
Strengthening resilient livelihoods of people who live in poverty and exclusion, especially women and youth and securing climate justice is important.
Young people constitute the biggest proportion of the society but their needs are not well addressed. There is a need of advancing the rights of children and youth to promote their holistic development.
