You can help more disabled children access and education in Tanzania.
Our country teams support DPOs with information, training, mentoring and funding. To encourage independence they help DPOs identify other sources of funding.
DPO leaders hold meetings with their members throughout the year to discuss their plans and aims and attend annual meetings with ADD International to plan and agree the next 12 months’ work and enter into formal partnerships.
In Tanzania we directly support the Federation of Disabled People's Organisations - SHIVYAWATA. The federation represents six local groups:
- Tanzania League of the Blind.
- Tanzania Albino Society.
- CHAVITA (representing Deaf and hearing impaired people).
- CHAWATA (representing people with physical impairments).
- Tanzania Association for Mental Health and SWAUTA (representing disabled women).
For further information on the organisations we work with in Tanzania, please see our annual reports and accounts.
