Uzikwasa is a team of committed people who believe that change starts with ourselves. Because we work to empower the most marginalized in our community we ensure that we do not marginalize anyone in our office. Our team means everything to us and a third of our staff are facilitators of organizational learning and development, including the finance manager.
We work as a catalyst for lasting social change by facilitating individuals, communities and systems through self-reflective processes to transformation. Media campaigns complement facilitative leadership development in addressing problems identified by communities themselves—from sexual violence and abuse to poor leadership.
Since its founding, UZIKWASA’s focus has been deep rather than wide. Concentrating on a single district in Tanzania, we believe effective behavior change must reflect and draw on in-depth understandings of the entire social context to ensure relevance and [community] ownership.
