Our Learning Journey
Our interventions are staying in Pangani District, but our learning isn’t
Our learning is an ongoing collective process among ourselves, the community, collaborators and stakeholders, which leads to new learning outputs and new emerging questions that define an organically growing program that addresses challenges and obstacles as they arise in people’s lives. We share our methodologies for learning from Pangani communities—of integrating process with impact and feedback—with peers and partners who seek to do the same with the communities they know best.
Through working with open boundaries and sharing the learning from innovative grass root intervention models with a growing number of likeminded partners, UZIKWASA seeks to contribute to a growing movement for transformation that will eventually reach out to a large number of rural communities in Tanzania.
Intervention approaches reflect UZIKWASA’s strong convictions about the critical roles of reflective learning, bottom up planning, collective implementation and monitoring, and equality in empowering women and men to take charge and drive their development for a better life.
This journey has inspired and energized each of us through the understanding that we can make change happen if we acknowledge everyone’s role in it and accept the complexity of social problems.
