TANZANIA MEDIA WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION (TAMWA)
WELCOME TO TAMWA WEBSITE
OUR VISION: A Peaceful Tanzania Society which respects human rights from a gender perspective.
OUR MISSION: To advocate for women and children's rights by conducting awareness raising activities for cultural, policy and legal changes/transformations in the society through the use of media.
The government of Tanzania in conjunction with various organizations has been struggling to liberate women from Gender-Based Violence (GBV)
Such efforts have proved successfully in different areas, because more women have started to understand their rights and claim them successfully.
Men too have reduced habits of mistreating their wives, thanks to effort from different Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) like Tanzania Media Women's Association (TAMWA) and Legal Service Facility (LSF).
