Crossroads International is an international development organization that is reducing poverty and increasing women’s rights around the world. Working with local partners and supported by hundreds of volunteers each year, Crossroads leverages expertise and resources, North and South, required to help people overcome poverty and assert their human rights.
Crossroads has entered partnerships with partners in Tanzania catering to specific areas of intervention related to Women’s Rights including TGNP. TGNP Mtandao has been in existence since 1993, during which time it has built itself into a leading member of the transformative feminist movement for social gender transformation and women empowerment within Tanzanian society, Africa and beyond. TGNP has distinguished herself as an active and recognised player in the progressive women and civil society movement in the country, Africa and beyond. Guided by transformative conceptual framework and her participatory and animation philosophy and approach, TGNP has been able to make a substantial contribution towards stimulating public debate and activism on policy and other social issues affecting women and other marginalised social groups. The organisation has worked with other actors in designing and implementing lobbying and advocacy campaigns and stimulating reflections and discourse on pertinent gender and development issues through training and capacity building, generation and dissemination of alternative information ; facilitating collective action based on social gender analysis of issues of concern to peoples’ development. Consequently, TGNP has added value to the women movement by stimulating a growing feminist consciousness within it: appreciating and recognition of gender as an important dimension in other progressive social movement it engages with in the country and beyond.
