Challenge

82% of girls in Tanzania are facing gender based violence (GBV), whereas most of them have been affected sexually, physically, psychologically, emotionally and economically/financially. The GBV against girls has been linked to other societal issues like female genital mutilation, early marriage and forced marriage. Thus, GBV is acknowledged as the major driver of various other severe problems among girls such as poverty stricken, HIV infections, hence causing high mortality rate in Tanzania.

Solution

Joint efforts will kill gender based violence (GBV). So, financial support from Good Samaritans/donors is highly needed for implementing the project. CAFLO will implement several activities includes conducting focused group discussions (FGD), community sensitization meetings against GBV. Also seminars and training will be organized aimed at enabling girls to understand their rights and gets various skills like advocacy skills and entrepreneurship skills for running income generating activities.

Long-Term Impact

The total of 1500 girls will be equipped with advocacy skills, life skills, entrepreneurship skills as well as understand well their rights, therefore becomes in good position to combat gender based violence and thereafter to live peaceful and healthily with full participation to foster socio-economic development. Also, the project will enable other people like men and boys to grasp well the rights of girls and women and protect all rights for girls` well being and for the family development.
