DAR ES SALAAM — Farming is a major source of employment for Tanzanian women, yet only 16% of women own agricultural land individually, leaving them vulnerable to a host of risks, including land grabs, climate change, and economic insecurity. By strengthening women's land rights through advocacy and collective action, Stand For Her Land is helping ensure future generations of Tanzanian women are able to avoid these risks, safely exercise their rights, and build a sustainable future for them and their families.
Landesa, the secretariat of the Campaign, is launching a project on GlobalGiving to support the coalition of local and national women's groups in Tanzania helping women protect their legal land rights. Stand for Her Land is creating a synchronized national advocacy campaign to educate women about their land rights using legal guides, radio programs, mobile apps, and targeted outreach.
To help maximize the impact of the Campaign's supporters, all donations up to $50 will be matched at 50% from September 14-18. Make a gift next week and share why women's land rights matter to you on social media with the hashtag #S4HL!
