BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF MWANGAZA INC
The program that we are specifically requesting funds for is Binti-Mama. Our Tanzanian program coordinators will train teams of intergenerational women in communication skills, educational focus, financial management, gender based violence, HIV prevention and harmful cultural practices. These teams will empower women and young girls in their homes, schools and church communities. They will learn how to become agents of change for healthy life choices thereby improving their health and livelihoods so that they might live their potential freely. The training includes the use of seven mini-books, written in Kiswahili by staff. These mini-books are an invaluable resource for participants not only during the seminar but when they return home to teach others. Most of the subjects to be taught are gender sensitive; therefore, teaching the information is the first step. Mini-books allow the teaching of the subjects and then become a tool for the participants to teach others when they return home.
