On September 26, 2019, Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC) will host an event in celebration of her 24th Anniversary since establishment on September 26, 1995. The event which is expected to take place at the LHRC’s newly established office at Area D in Dodoma will host more than 100 guests including the Minister for the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Hon. Kangi Lugola who is expected to officiate the event.

Other guests include government officials, members of the parliament, representatives from the judiciary, religious leaders, members of the press, development partners, members of the general public representatives from like-minded organizations as well as LHRC members.

The event will highlight the milestones by LHRC in a drive to guaranteeing protection and promotion of human rights in Tanzania through various interventions including legal aid provision, advocacy for laws and policies reforms, mass education for awareness and change in harmful practices and behaviours, research and legal empowerment to marginalized groups counting women, children and people with disabilities. The event will also be a stepping stone to the launching of LHRC’s new office in Dodoma, launching of LHRC’s silver jubilee that is 25 years celebration as well as the launching of Majimaji Awards that is awarded to recognize outstanding individuals in protection and promotion of human rights in Tanzania.

Launching of the new office in Dodoma is the most anticipated part of the event given the pressing need for LHRC to intensify government, parliament and judiciary engagement especially at this moment when the fifth phase government is committed to officially and permanently move from Dar es Salaam to Dodoma as the new capital. Launching of an office in Dodoma also means extended reach to the central zone regions which include Dodoma and Singida as well as other nearby regions.
