Karibu - welcome

This public workshop marks the conclusion of a week of activities with the Women’s Federation in Keko Machungwa. the Centre for Community Initiatives (CCI), and the research team involved in an action research project under the umbrella of the Dar es Salaam CityLab (https://www.citylab-dar.ac.tz). The objective of the project titled “Women to Watch” was to understand: what motivates women to participate in the everyday transformation of their neighborhoods, what are the impacts of women-led work on the built environment, and how does participation in neighborhood work affect women’s individual and collective identities and political organization. On Friday the research findings will be shared with a larger audience and a call for action will also be issued by the Federation Women and their research partners.

"The Fellowship offered me an invaluable and rare opportunity to conduct academic research in a leading institution during three years, which nowadays is nothing short of a luxury. I cannot emphasise enough how important this is for an early career scholar."
