The reason we keep pushing hard

Women in Law and Development in Africa (WiLDAF), is a Pan African women’s rights network which is dedicated to promoting and strengthening strategies that link law and development to increase women’s participation and influence at the community, national, region and international levels. It was founded in February, 1990 in Harare Zimbabwe – following the NGO forum held within the context of the UN Decade for women- and, whose theme was “Women rights and Development: Network for Empowerment in Africa”. Since then, the organisation has established chapters in 26 African countries, including Tanzania, constituting over 350 organisations and 3,000 individuals who share these objectives.

WiLDAF has 20 years of experience and excellent track record to advance women’s rights and their status in Tanzania. This is because gender equality is not only a fundamental right, but also a necessary foundation for peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.
