BRAC has been active in Tanzania since 2006 implementing its development programmes with the objective to alleviate extreme poverty among poor and marginalized people. Our programmes focus on empowering poor people through provision of education, empowering adolescent girls in livelihood and life skills education, access to micro loans, small enterprise development, water and sanitation, agriculture and food security. Currently BRAC Tanzania operates through 151 branch offices with over 1700 valued staff in 54 districts of 25 regions in Tanzania. Our programmes currently target 4.12 million people in Tanzania.
Since 2009, BRAC has been implementing its Empowerment and Livelihoods for Adolescents (ELA) programme in Tanzania. ELA’s reach is robust, covering 8,000 enrolled girls (5,400 regularly active) in 180 clubs in four geographically diverse regions of the country: Dar es Salaam, Dodoma, Mbeya, and Iringa. ELA helps vulnerable girls aged 13-24 achieve greater economic and social empowerment by providing safe spaces, training in life skills, and mentorship and help them secure formal employment
As an additional to the ELA programme, Women Win and BRAC Tanzania work together to implement Goal Events, the Be Independent module & sports into their clubs.
