We are a group of women Architects, Engineers, Quantity Surveyors and Scientists committed to enhancing social justice by mobilizing women to spearhead building adequate shelter for marginalized communities in Tanzania. TAWAH is officially registered as an NGO under the Non-Governmental Organizations Act, 2002 in March 2011 with the registration number 4487.
We serve Marginalized groups in Tanzania include women, people living in poverty, people with special needs, indigenous populations, refugees and minorities. Because of their social status, these groups are often excluded from fundamental aspects of society, such as equal access to education, access to quality healthcare, adequate living conditions,
Connecting women with women underpins our work. Through the collective construction of shelter and sanitation infrastructure, TAWAH teaches practical skills to low income women who can in turn use those skills to generate new economic opportunities.
