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.
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.
The Dare Women's Foundation is located in Tanzania and is currently working in the Tanga region (Mtae and Mambo villages) and Arusha region (Malala, Majengo, Moshono and Olasiti villages).
