On 31st January 2016, the HSF supported one day induction training to TWPG (link) members to enable women them understand the required parliamentary processes and procedures. The training was held at the Msekwa Hall, Bunge grounds in Dodoma region.
On Wednesday, 24th February 2016, the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) held a stakeholder consultative day workshop to validate an assessment report on performance of Tanzania Police Force (TPF) during the 2015 general election. The assessment aimed at providing a guidance document for the Tanzania Police Force which could be used in future to improve their services during elections.
In fostering transparency, accountability, and citizen’s engagement, the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) in collaboration with the Civic Education Teachers Association (CETA) is currently implementing a project on Public Expenditure Tracking Systems (PETS). The project builds on an international model that provides training to PETS commitees at the local level. PETS commitees consist of selected personal at village and hamlet level who receive training on how to track expenditure of public funds. The first phase of the project will benefit 18 villages from 6 Wards of Handeni District, namely Mazingara, Kwasunga, Kitumbi, Komkonga, Kwedizinga, and Kwamatuku.
In the fight against the misuse of public funds and more accountability of state authorities, citizens possess a very important oversight function. This was made clear during the “Award-giving Ceremony” for the best performed “Public Expenditure Tracking System” (PETS) Committees organized by the HSF and its partner the “Civic Education Teachers Association” (CETA) on October 22, 2016 in Mkata Ward, Handeni District.
From 25th to 28th of April Hanns Seidel Foundation arranged an Inception Workshop to initiate the Project “Women Leaders-Power of Change” at the Beachcomber Hotel and at Hanns Seidel Foundation office.
