MESSAGE FROM THE WEECE DIRECTOR

It is my great pleasure to inform you that WEECE has just celebrated our 16th Anniversary in the Kilimanjaro Region. For 16 years we have been working closely with local women in this region. WEECE has provided the community with leadership and initiatives to tackle some of the pressing issues affecting these women and their  families. Every December WEECE brings renewed joy and enthusiasm to myself and our members as we review our accomplishments and look forward to the new challenges ahead.

Many things have changed in this region over the last 16 years, but one thing remains the same: WEECE is still a grass-root Organization. WEECE serves both the urban and rural population with the goal of helping them satisfy basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, education and health care. We noticed that remote rural areas were greatly neglected. Therefore, we launched a pilot project in the Nganjoni Village to offer support through education, community owned business, and VICOBA. Today, I am proud to announce the project is a success, and we have launched similar projects in 6 other villages.

WEECE continues to expand its efforts to achieve gender equality. We understand that to achieve gender equality we need cooperation and understanding from both men and women. So we also encourage men to attend our seminars, which include topics on why women’s empowerment is important to the whole family and how men can play an essential role. We understand that if we truly want to change the culture we must begin teaching our children at a very young age about the discrimination of women and about how we can build a community with gender equality. WEECE has initiated seminars in schools with boys and girls to discuss these issues.

WEECE has also made extra efforts last year to educate the community on issues related to the disabled. Due to lack of education and understanding, families and communities tend to neglect and poorly treat the disabled members of the community.  We are hopping through education we can enhance understanding on how disabilities are not the fault of any individual and they deserve the same attention and care as those without disabilities.

My vision is for people to live in the world of God in harmony, enjoying whoever God has created us to be, without having the feeling of being less fortunate. This means that all people have rights to express their own feelings and religious beliefs, to have access to education, equal opportunity to life and employment, and decision making power and participation in developmental planning.

I would like to invite people who are interested in working with us to support us. The devotion of your time is priceless. I would like to thank everyone who has supported WEECE in various ways over the 16 wonderful years. I am making special request to all friends of WEECE to continue your support through services, advice, and donation so as to strengthen our WEECE community.
