Based in Dar-es-Salaam, TGNP Mtandao has been in existence since 1993, during which time it has built itself into a leading member of the women feminist movement for social gender transformation and women empowerment within Tanzanian, Africa and beyond. Its overall goal is to increase gender responsiveness of policy formulation and implementation of various policies.
The approach of the organization is enhancing strategic linkages, networking and coalition building among like-minded civil society organizations, grassroots groups and key networks and coalitions.
Over the years, TGNP has made a substantial contribution towards developing a critical mass of organized civil society with the capacity to critically analyze and stimulate public debate, and to carry out activism and collective action on pertinent social, cultural, political and economic development issues. Crossroads International is an international non-profit organization which has been in existence for more than 50 years.
We are supported by the Canadian International Development Agency (DFATD), other government and non-government funders and many individual donors around the world. Crossroads is dedicated to building a constituency of global citizens committed to voluntarism, international development and public engagement. Crossroads strategy is knowledge sharing by linking likeminded organizations, by enabling knowledge exchanges through qualified volunteers and by facilitating networking and learning opportunities. Crossroads works in partnership with NGOs and community-based organizations in eight countries in Africa and Bolivia.
