’We have come a long way since 2005, but one of things that still holds true is that we are grounded on being an essential vessel of influence for women; creating opportunities, embracing innovation and creating a unified platform where women can advocate issues affecting their socio-economic welfare.
We believe that we didn’t come this far to only come this far, and this is why as a team, TWCC
connects women from all over Tanzania to share knowledge and learn from the most experienced
women-owned companies and organizations.
TWCC has various agendas in-line with government plans to further improve the business environment for women and marginalized groups across Tanzania. TWCC’s inclusion strategy involves participation of all members of the community, leaving no one behind’. Mercy Sila, National Chairman, TWCC.
‘With up to 10,000 members from all sectors in all regions & 22,000 women reached through our programmed, TWCC is off to its full potential; empowering Tanzanian women in business through
advocacy, provision of financial linkages, capacity building, networking, and marketing.
TWCC acknowledges the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania, under the governance of
Her Excellency Samia Suluhu Hassan for influencing a positive business environment. Her efforts to
connect Tanzanian businesses with the rest of the world has motivated business practices.
We also extend our heartfelt appreciation to development partners: the Ministry of Trade and
Investment, UN agencies (ILO, UN Women), Financial Institutions, and Private Sector Associations (to mention a few) for their continued support towards our mission to create women’s enterprises which are locally, regionally and internationally competitive’. Mwajuma Hamza, Executive Director, TWCC.
