What We Do
Oxfam has been working in Tanzania since the 1960s. Our teams are based in four locations (Mwanza, Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Kigoma).
Oxfam in Tanzania (OiTZ) strives to become an outward- looking organisation and catalyst for change at local, national and regional levels. Through its programs and partnerships, and by leveraging from past experience, strategic membership of networks and alliances, and long-standing good reputation in Tanzania, OiTZ can facilitate significant change to influence poverty reduction.
Our vision for Tanzania is: empowered citizens with reduced poverty, inequality and injustice where citizens, especially women and young people, have access to resources and have a good quality of life. People will be more aware of, and demand their rights to resources and essential services.
The Oxfam Country Strategy (OCS) 2015-2019 will see the consolidation and strengthening of our influencing work; improved documentation and publication practice; better supported strategic partnerships and collaborative approaches; embedded systematic learning; informed policy influencing at national level; and scaled-up digital technologies use.
The OCS aligns with the Tanzanian Government’s own development objectives, articulated in the Tanzania Development Vision 2025, and will bring OiTZ into alignment with the strategic ambition of the Oxfam Confederation and Vision 2020.
