TATU Project

Moshi, Tanzania
Joined March 2020

TATU Project’s mission is to facilitate equal and sustainable development projects together with the community members of Msitu wa Tembo and Londoto in northern Tanzania.

Presence in: Tanzania
Focus: Gender-based violence, Health, Livelihoods, Women's Rights

By focusing on one community in two neighbouring villages, we are taking the time to build stable relationships with the community. From this approach, we identify major challenges and design solutions together. This approach greatly reinforces the integration of our programs into the local structures and ensures sustainability.

TATU Project is a non-governmental organization, created in 2013. Our priorities and projects are based on our baseline survey from 2014. From this research we identified five problem areas which we try to address, often in collaboration with partners or other NGOs that complement TATU Project’s expertise. The problem areas are: improving Education, Environmental challenges, Health care, Marginalization and Access to Water.

The majority of our projects are set up within the Kazi na Sala women’s group and/or in cooperation with the various responsible committees in the community. The women’s group was started by TATU Project but is nowadays an independent legal entity, managed by, and for the women. Kazi na Sala means ‘work and pray’ in Swahili.

Hello Namati Team, I am excited to come across your website today and want to take the opportunity to join your network. I am the co-founder/director of TATU Project, a rural development NGO working in Northern Tanzania, active since 2013. A big part of our work is with women empowerment. For this reason, I think the concept of "legal empowerment" comes in handy, especially when it comes to different kinds of gender based violences which we are focusing on since 2019. For this, I think it is interesting to learn from your experience. Another interest of mine as I have done research in the Maasai community of Engaresero, I have become quite sensitive to the different pressures they are facing when it comes to land and pastoralism.
Albane Gaudissart is the network champion (main point of contact) for TATU Project.
