In the year 2002 two young women got the vision to start an organization to bring poor women together to find solutions to their problems. They gradually mobilized 9 more women and together they agreed to form the Women’s Promotion Centre (WPC).
With little education and no experience in NGO work, the start was slow and difficult; the women struggled hard for few years to set up a formal and structured group.
In 2007, WPC obtained its official registration as a non-governmental, non-profit women’s organization operating in Kigoma region, in Tanzania.
Since the start, WPC has focused its work in Kigoma rural district and the Kigoma-Ujiji municipality, but later expanded to Kasulu and Kibondo districts. Born of the need to address fundamental women’s problems in the region, WPC chose to work directly with marginal women at the grassroots level. Being ourselves a local and emerging organization, and evolving in a poorly resourced region, our progress has been constantly challenged.
Ten (10) years after its creation, the WPC has grown and developed into a potentially dynamic and strong organisation representing a lead feminist voice in the remote Western part of Tanzania.
