In Tanzania the Hanns Seidel Foundation was established in 1988 with the main objective of promoting good governance and democracy. The aim of the HSF is to support the civic participation – especially that of women – in the democratic process and strengthening democratic institutions mainly on the local level. To force sustainability and to strengthen international dialogue HSF establishes since 2011 a regional project in East Africa which includes also Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia. The regional main office is in Nairobi, Kenya.
In our Tanzania Office, we are a team of seven persons and we coordinate activities in Tanzania and Uganda. We collaborate with various partners - governmental, civil society and international institutions.
