Welcome to another issue of our Mlinzi wa Haki (Human Rights Guardian) newsletter, with this one compiling stories on activities and interventions that LHRC conducted from January to June 2019.
Within this short period we have been able to successfully launch our new six years strategic plan 2019 – 2025, thanks to the Swedish Embassy, Norwegian Embassy and Ford Foundation who expressed their commitment to supporting the strategy in the earliest stage enabling us to sit back and plan for the future of human rights in Tanzania. Our six-year strategic plan has five main strategic objectives whose implementation will foster the attainment of our vision which is to attain a Just and Equitable Society.
In this period we have also been able to continue with our good cause of protecting and promoting human rights in Tanzania through engaging duty bearers including parliamentarians, judiciary and members of the executive pillar for policies and laws reforms. We have continued with civic engagement for awareness on laws and human rights for the public to be aware of their rights and exercise accountability measures whenever their rights are jeopardized and/or violated.
In this reporting period, LHRC convened a number of community and national dialogues to gather public opinion on issues concerning constitutional reforms in the country.
We’ve continued with CSO’s engagement for meaningful reforms and community engagement.
Exceptionally, I wish to extend my gratitude to the US Department of State for recognizing my efforts by awarding me with the International Women of Courage Award. The award has been a motivation to me, LHRC and other human rights activists towards the improvement of Huma Rights in Tanzania.

Huenda huna muda wa kutosha wala kipato cha kutosha kulinda utu na haki za wengine, ingawa unawiwa kufanya hivyo.
Ni jukumu letu sote kujitoa kwa kidogo tulichojaaliwa ili kupaka rangi ya furaha katika nyuso za wengine, wewe, yule na sisi tukikusanya nguvu tunaweza kutetea na kulinda haki za wanaoonewa kwa kushindwa kuzifikia huduma za haki.
Jitolee sasa kidogo ulichonacho kusaidia ulinzi na utetezi wa haki na utu wa binadamu.
