Working in partnership
CARE Tanzania's Wezesha programme aims to empower rural communities to empower rural women. To achieve this, CARE Tanzania is placing partnership at the heart of its strategy. The Wezesha programme is not about what CARE will do on its own. It is about what CARE and other actors will do together.
Under this new approach, CARE Tanzania will gradually change from directly implementing programmes at grassroots level to the more indirect and supportive roles of facilitator, networker, alliance member, coalition-builder, capacity-builder, action researcher, evidence generator, policy analyst, and advocate. In this new approach, CARE Tanzania aims to work with local organisations to collectively bring about the emergence of vibrant, equitable and resilient rural communities where women are empowered to realise their social, political and economic rights, and natural resources are sustainably managed in the context of climate change.
