Big News! The East Africa Philanthropy Network is on the cusp of a pioneering era, and we are overjoyed to share the driving force behind this shift: the newest addition, the phenomenal Women Fund Tanzania Trust. They are not just dreaming of a Tanzanian society where women realize their utmost potential – they are designing it. Their mission? To break barriers, shape futures, and cultivate a land where women stand tall at the forefront of community transformation. But what truly sets them apart is their strategic roadmap: a harmonious blend of grant-making, the fortification of capabilities, and the passionate zeal to amplify the voices in the feminist women and children’s movement. By pooling our resources, wisdom, and enthusiasm, we are not just aiming for change – we are priming the world for radical change.
