AFED Women Board Visits Jamaats in Tanzania

The Women Board Chairperson, Mrs. Zaheeda Alishan paid a visit to Mwanza and Zanzibar and had an opportunity to meet the Ladies Managing Committee of the respective Jamaats.  The Women Board Team also met the Dar es Salaam Ladies Managing Committee.
The focus of discussion during these visits and meeting were: 

  • To connect and create a network with the Ladies members of the Jamaats
  • To brief them about the Vision, Mission and Objectives of the Women Board.
  • To unite, develop and empower more female leaders to lead the community in different positions.
  • The way forward is to provide exposure and mentorship to Girls and Women and develop them into spiritually and socially conscious leaders.
  • To discuss the details of the survey sent out by the Board which would enable to identify and reach out to assist and empower the target groups.
  • To discuss the Lady Khadija Grant and its objective to support small businesses that are run by female members of our Jamaats in Africa.
  • To create awareness of the Board’s upcoming event; the Leadership and Emotional Intelligence Workshop for the Ladies Managing Committee team.  This Program is aimed to build their skills and enhance their overall leadership style of our ladies and help them discover effective leadership techniques to handle challenging leadership issues as well as identify and select the appropriate methods that work for them.
  • Introduced the idea of launching the “WE Can Support” Helpline, which would provide help and give effective solutions to tough situations women undergo and to make the lives of women better by giving support, offering hope and creating connections on a regular basis.

Observations and Concerns from Ladies members of the Jamaats:

  • A need of Ladies Managing Committee (LMC) in all Jamaats and support from Jamaat Managing Committee.
  • The Role of the LMC in supporting the Women’s’ Board and role of the Women Board Representative.
  • Ladies from small Jamaats feel neglected and left out from programs organized by the AFED Boards.
  • Lack of appropriate medical facilities especially in regards to women health issues, lack of educational prospects for their children which deters the level of confidence in their children as well as lack of marriage prospects.

The Board is appreciative of the support and co-operation given by the Ladies Managing Committee of these Jamaats and the lady’s members and will endeavour to work on their observations and organize events and programs for the upliftment of the women in the Community.

The Africa Federation Women Board wishes to record its appreciation to the Dar-es-Salaam, Mwanza and Zanzibar Kuwwat Jamaat Managing Committees for facilitating the meetings with their Ladies Committee. The meetings were quite fruitful and more visits are being planned to other Jamaats under Afed.
