Background and Rationale
Oxfam is an international confederation of 19 organizations working together in over 90 countries and with partners and allies around the world to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. We work directly with communities and seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them. Our focus areas are development, emergencies, campaigning, advocacy and policy research.

Planning and implementation of Oxfam programme in Tanzania is informed by the Oxfam in Tanzania (OiTZ) Country Strategy for 2015 - 2019 which has a vision of an inclusive, equitable and just Tanzanian society, where citizens especially women and young people enjoy their rights and have access to resources necessary to live good lives and as active citizens of the country. Women empowerment is a priority goal that is integrated within the Oxfam country strategy (OCS), which aims to see women, are economically, socially and politically empowered to be transformative leaders and change agents within their households and community.

To achieve this goal; OiTZ is implementing a programme for greater gender equity, women and youth empowerment in five regions of Arusha, Lindi, Manyara, Mtwara, Shinyanga, Geita and Simiyu. The programme is in its third year of implementation and many changes have been realized to the life of our target community.
Furthermore, Women continue to suffer in the face of patriarchal cultural attitudes, behaviour and beliefs affecting their access to and ownership of resources, and access to essential services. These practices continue to negatively affect attitudes and support aimed at eliminating Violence Against Women (VAW).

Oxfam in Tanzania strategy ensures that women and girls are at the centre of its work. It is from this juncture that Oxfam in Tanzania embarked in working with other affiliates in building its work around Unpaid Care and Domestic Work (UCDW) since 2016 although its engagement has been mostly in the invited spaces.  Since 2018, Oxfam In Tanzania strengthened its engagement on UCDW focusing mainly on building the network of women’s rights organizations which will challenge and influence policy makers to recognize and allocate funds for UCDW.

To influence shifts in policies and practice around UCDW, Gender Based Violence (GBV) and access to essential services, Oxfam in Tanzania uses different strategies to reach out to policy makers, communities, WRO and public.  This includes use of media for public campaigning and mobilizes support around these issues.  Oxfam in Tanzania believes that the use of media as a strategy is based on the theory that repeated and sustained messaging coming from diverse quarters, to keep the audience engaged on the issue will contribute in the change.

It is from this juncture that Oxfam in Tanzania intends to engage a consultant with the experience on the mass mobilization to produce various content for media engagement. The consultant will work together with mainstream media, social media influencers and bloggers to popularise the approved content on social media and other media outlets to raise awareness on selected topics.

The campaign will also seek to influence national and regional political parties’ leaders to come out, encourage and promote genuine participation of women, young people and people with disabilities in the forthcoming local elections as candidates and voters. Leaders will also be encouraged to speak out about how their party policies, manifestos and practise encourages the participation of women, young people and people with disabilities in the electoral process. Leaders will also call upon their followers to stop electoral GBV which is the main stumbling block for participation of marginalised groups in elections.
