Dear donors,

Much has happened since our last report in which we advised of changes to government regulations related to the delivery of training by non-government organisations in Tanzania. We were not able to continue training the wonderful Pamoja group while the registrations and approvals were sought.

Unfortunately, the group lost momentum for the training during the break. This was not surprising or a reflection on the women’s passion to claim equality under statutory law or safety and access to income and property under customary law.

The Pamoja women’s various micro-business ventures have progressed and their decision to not continue training reflects the pre-eminence women will place on any opportunity to gain an income for their family.

Please be assured – we haven’t stopped working here - indeed it has been as busy as ever and I have a link to our July Newsletter to show you what we have been up to across all of our programs.

Your generous donation continues to support Community Legal Advisor training with (60) of women in Terat Village, Simanjaro region. We started working with this group n in July and so far they have covered 6 topics: General Human Rights, Property Rights, Inheritance, Child Rights and Domestic Violence. 

The photos attached are from training held at Terat on July 31st. One of the photos showed some of the ways we've gotten around the challenges of some of the participants being unable to read and write by using photos and diagrams and videos. 

We all thank you for your support not only of our work but also of women and children here in Tanzania.

Asante sana

Judi Owens

Dear donors

The wonderful women of the Pamoja group have so far had four days community legal adviser training. They have covered general human rights, land rights, Land Court procedures and Title Deeds. 

Our training schedule with this group has been postponed because of recent government changes which require ngos to obtain permits to deliver any training. We have submitted our paper work and don't anticipate any problems in being allocated the permit.

You will also see that our Community Paralegal Program name has changed to Community Legal Advisor Program to align with changes to the Legal Aid Act, the program itself has not changed in anyway.

Please have a look at our other programs on our website:www.inherityourrights.org

Help Train 50 Women Community Paralegal 

Progress Report - 25 February 2019  

Inherit Yours Rights was honored by your support of our work to build sustainable grassroots change in our region, addressing the abuse and discrimination of women and girls through the training of women to become human and legal rights advocates. We achieved almost half of the target amount of $5000 to train 50 female paralegals. Thank you!

Your donation enables 20 women become Inherit Your Rights Community Paralegals over the next three months.

In early February we met a great group of women from Sakina in Arusha who are keen to become ‘barefoot lawyers’ in their communities.

These women, aged 25 – 40 years, had previously formed and registered as a collective under the name of Pamoja to support each other with loans to individually establish and run micro-businesses. (Our experience has shown that human and legal rights awareness is an important foundation to micro-business training as it better positions women to protect the income they generate through their businesses). 

The first session with Pamoja was held last week and our trainer Winnie said they are an enthusiastic and engaged group, we look forward to working with them each week as they go through the ten-week program.

Please keep an eye on our work by visiting our webpage  www.inherityourrights.org

and Facebook  @InheritYourRights.

Asante sana!
