The Dare Women's Foundation is an NGO working to empower Tanzanian women and girls, with a focus on rural areas, through poverty alleviation, social justice, economic empowerment, and gender equality.
The Dare Women's Foundation is located in Tanzania and is currently working in the Northern region in places like Machame, Kabuku, Arusha, and others.
Many of the women we work with have endured tragedies such as rape, discrimination, domestic violence. Most all of them deal with lack of feminine hygiene care, little nutrition and conservation education, young marriage, and large family size due to lack of contraception and sex education. By bringing these women together, educating them about their rights, giving them a voice, and supporting them in their endeavors, the Dare Women's Foundation is changing Tanzania one woman at a time. When you educate a girl, you educate a community.

SPECIAL THANKS TO
DOROBO SAFARI COMPANY
The Dorobo Safari Company started in 1980's to give tourists the opportunity to explore Tanzania through eco-tourism safaris. These safaris are low impact, experiencing nature on foot, working with communities so that they benefit from their natural resources and unique cultures, and trying to make sure that visitors are not only well informed about the wildlife and natural history of Tanzania, but also about the challenges and issues of development that Tanzanian’s face. Dorobo invites travelers to experience Tanzania with the help and insight of locals as their guidance allows visitors to see beyond the "Big FIve".
Soon after the company began, Dorobo Safari Company realized that the expanding populations throughout Tanzania were beginning to threaten both wildlife and indigenous cultures. In order to protect the wildlife along with traditional pastoral and hunting and gathering land based economies, they began to make joint agreements with local communities in Tanzania to allow the use of land for tourism in exchange for payment. This allowed for the conservation of land while benefitting local communities.
Several of the members of the Dare Women's Foundation are employees of the Dorobo Safari, including Maggie and Tino. Since the beginning of the Women's Dare Foundation, Dorobo Safaris was extremely supportive of their mission. They have agreed to help funnel donations to the Dare Women's Foundation through the Dorobo Fund, making the money transfer for those who wish to donate around the world possible.
