Hakikazi operates three distinct programmes. Collectively they represent the operationalisation of our belief that knowledge can stimulate action for change.

Knowlege ... Action ... Change

bulletThe Zinduka Programme
bulletThe Community Governance Programme: Action for Accountability
bulletThe Community Livelihoods Opportunities Programme

The Zinduka Programme

(Zinduka means wake up or be aware in Kiswahili) This programme promotes public education to create knowledge and understanding of poverty issues in communities in which Hakikazi works directly and also nationwide.

Our focus is on providing information about citizens rights and responsibilities to isolated and neglected communities, facilitating village level discourse on key issues and providing a platform for continued dialogue and local information sharing.

Feedback from these interactions is then used in advocacy work at local, regional and national level. Our plain language guides on policies are an important part of our work in this programme area.

The Community Governance Programme: Action for Accountability

This programme builds on the initial educational work by equipping poor people and their representative structures with governance tools capable of monitoring inputs into poverty reduction activities in their communities. This is part of a process of generating a culture of participation, accountability and transparency at all levels of administration.

Specific focuses of the programme include participatory action research and monitoring of public expenditure, especially as related to Poverty Reduction Strategies. Alliance building and networking in order to engage effectively in policy dialogue are also a priority.

The Community Livelihoods Opportunities Programme

This programme builds on the other two programmes by focusing on the promotion of sustainable livelihoods and capabilities through processes that foster constructive dialogue and action between the poor and all levels of government.

A crucial facet of the programme is to explore the linkages between livelihood opportunities, access to and ownership of natural resources and ongoing institutional reforms in the areas of natural resource management and trade and enterprise policies. These policy reforms critically affect the lives of those dependent on natural resources but their voices have been largely absent from the decision-making process.

Geographic Coverage

Hakikazi Catalyst is a national NGO, working in partnership with a number of national networks and partners to maximize the reach of our policy awareness work. Zinduka material such as plain language guides, posters and tool kits are made available to interested partners to use in their own work in the poverty reduction field.

In terms of direct intervention and support we are currently active in Arusha and Manyara Regions and have plans to expand our work to regions of Southern Tanzania following consultations with potential partners and supporters.
