Zanzibar Women’s day is arranged as a non-profit project. The idea behind the project is to bring awareness to the multiple projects that are dealing with supporting the women of Zanzibar in terms of Women’s rights, Music, Art, Culture and Education.
We are following three goals:
1. To show the women of south region the various options in the area to improve their situations and to help them knowing about where to get support in becoming more independent, to express themselves in many different ways and increase their knowledge and education
2. To give exposure to these projects to a big and diverse audience, both local and foreigners in order to create awareness and giving them possibility to gain funds and support to keep the work up
3. To create discussions and possible partnerships as different projects are getting together in one place and have the chance to exchange their ideas and experiences
