UN Women, in collaboration with the Government of Finland is implementing a four-year project titled ‘Strengthening women’s and girls’ meaningful participation, leadership, and economic rights, (WLER) at the local levels in Tanzania’ (2022 – 2025).

The project will enhance implementation of the United Republic of Tanzania’s commitments to gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE) including the Generation Equality. It builds on the Women’s Leadership and Political Participation Project (Wanawake Wanaweza) Phase II (2017-2021) and Phase I (2014 – 2017) that identified discriminatory gender norms, behaviours and practices and lack of women’s economic opportunities as among the key barriers to women’s leadership at the local government levels. The project adopts a long-term action-based approach to advancing women’s leadership, meaningful participation, economic rights and, addressing the disproportionate share of unpaid care work by women and girls. The project will implement a multi-pillared approach with combination of strategies and approaches to ensure effective delivery of the programme objectives and outcomes. Inclusive, participatory, and community-oriented actions will be developed and implemented to transform gender norms and address social-economic challenges and barriers to women and girls’ leadership and access to resources.
