Location: Tanzania - Arusha, Tanzania - Shinyanga
Background Information: The empowerment of women, girls and youth for transformative change and gender equality are fundamental for Oxfam in Tanzania. Our country strategy (2015-2019) has identified tackling rural poverty and women and youth empowerment as central to addressing poverty and injustice.    We believe that everyone is entitled to a life of dignity and opportunity and we work with others to make this a reality. Through different projects that are funded by Irish Aid women and youth are empowered and supported to address all forms of discrimination and injustice that are both a cause and result of the entrenched inequality which drives poverty. We work to break this cycle by placing women and girls at the heart of our work.

Together with our implementing partners Ujamaa Community Resource Team (UCRT) in Manyara region and KIVULINI in Shinyanga and Mwanza regions, we have been implementing projects that objectively empower women and youth in the pursuit of transformative change and gender equality. We are changing the position of women and youth by facilitating them economically, increasing their knowledge on policies and legislative frameworks concerning Gender Based Violence, improved their ability to cope, respond and recover from stresses and facilitate livestock ownership and business to increase women income and support individual and joint CCROs for women.  In understanding how we transform livelihood of youth and women in these regions we will document successes and challenges to influence other actors such as government, donors and other agencies to take this work to scale.
