our WORK

Here's What We Did Best

From the onset, we realized the importance of working with all tiers of the local leadership in Zanzibar from the central government to shehias (villages). The Milele 2020 strategy has a special focus to support local communities from the grassroots. The support at this level has achieved greater engagement of the local communities in the participatory planning to deliver local services in health, education, and livelihoods. As a result, the empowered shehias have achieved 60 per cent implementation of their development goals for 2021.

The interventions included capacity building of Shehia Advisory Committees so that they can tackle obstacles and grab opportunities for development and effectively coordinate developmental initiatives through undertaking quarterly supportive supervision. The empowerment has helped in opening up opportunities that were previously deprioritized by the Government and its development partners.
