Dear Our Esteemed Reader,
Greetings from the Legal and Human Right Centre (LHRC)
With the support of our devoted staff and our development partners, including the Em- bassies of Sweden, Norway, Finland, Ireland, Ford Foundation and Wellspring Philanthro- pist Fund. LHRC is delighted to welcome you to our first (January to March) 2021 Mlinzi wa Haki newsletter. At LHRC, we work tirelessly on the mission of empowering the people of Tanzania by pro- moting, reinforcing and safeguarding human rights and good governance in the country. Since the beginning of 2021, we have been successful in executing various activities that aimed at cultivating our six-year strategy plans for 2019-2025. This includes improved legal and constitutional reforms, civic space, rule of law and improved social-economic and environmental justice. Again, LHRC is proud of being able to strengthen the legal and policy framework con- trolling special rights of women, children, and people with disabilities, as well as to improve the LHRC's effectiveness in carrying out its mandate. Furthermore, we were delighted and honored to get an award from the Tanzania Digital Awards (TDA) 2020, as the best Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in the use of social media. I was personally awarded the best female social media NGO leader of the year. I had no idea I'd be selected for this honor, it came as a great surprise to me. Thank you all, I will do my best to maintain this honor. I encourage you all to read and share the Mlinzi wa Haki Newsletter.
Adv. Anna Aloyce Henga
LHRC Executive Director
