New Opportunities: Call For Proposal at WFT Trust February 2024
The Registered Trustees Of Women Fund Tanzania (Wft Trust)
The Registered Trustees of Women Fund Tanzania (WFT Trust) is the first national feminist Fund in the country and the only funding support mechanism, started by women, for women, girls, and children. The Fund seeks to achieve lasting feminist gains by addressing the root causes of unequal power relations, including gender-based inequalities, and other oppressive systems, attitudes, and social norms in various fields. We do this through funding women rights organisations, women’s, girls’, and children’s rights organisations and movement(s), and other social justice movements to be able to amplify voices and organise for collective transformative action to achieve progressive social change with agency.

Our main focus is to resource grassroots Women’s Rights Organizations (WROs) and movements, especially at the local level, because we believe that they are the experts of their own realities and have incredible organising power, voice, innovative leadership, and agency to transform the disempowering contexts they live in to realise their full potential and rights as human beings.

WFT Trust believes and invests in harnessing the immense power of the feminist women’s movement(s) that arises from combining engagement platforms, experiences, and collaborative strategies and processes that harness the insights, knowledge, skills, and ingenuity of organisations, groups, individuals and activists working in Tanzania.

  • Economic Justice and sustainability – breaking policy and cultural barriers that limit women and girls’ effective economic participation and prevent them from benefiting from broader economic sectors such as oil, gas, and extractives. This also includes engagement in broader policy strategies aimed at promoting women and girls voice and participation in gender budgeting initiatives, financial inclusion services, provision of feminist support such as Women and Money education, and others.
  • Environmental justice and gender – addressing policies, laws, and cultural challenges facing women and young girls in exercising their voice and agency, including addressing adverse effects of environmental degradation with a particular focus on climate change and land rights for women, girls and other socially marginalised populations.
