Who is DIGNITY Kwanza

DIGNITY Kwanza - Community Solutions (DIGNITY Kwanza) is a Tanzania-registered not-for-profit organization, which was founded in July 2018 by the former employees of Asylum Access Tanzania (AATZ) upon AATZ’s closure. We as DIGNITY Kwanza envision a Tanzania in which every person lives with dignity and is assured of the opportunity to achieve self-fulfillment.

DIGNITY Kwanza has thereby committed to work with three groups of people, here inafter referred to as clients:

  1. Refugees (including asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants)
  2. Stateless and at risk of statelessness people
  3. Marginalized and vulnerable Tanzanians

The four priority areas that have been identified as the most important include:

  1. Legal status
  2. Economic and social inclusion
  3. Gender equality
  4. Governance and accountability

Aimed at achieving specific strategic outcomes for each of our target groups of beneficiaries, the following strategic objectives have been defined and shall be implemented in the coming five years:

  1. Engagement in broad advocacy at all levels
  2. Advocacy and support for our clients in obtaining legal status
  3. Advocacy for and promotion of gender equality practices
  4. Engagement with our clients and various actors to increase access to resources and opportunities
  5. Strengthening the capacity and sustainability of DIGNITY Kwanza.

The environment in which DIGNITY Kwanza will operate during the next five years comprises internal factors largely linked to the institutional development of DIGNITY Kwanza as well as external factors especially related to the current political, economic, social, and technological (PEST) situations. Following the assessment by multiple actors, internal strengths and weaknesses have been mapped out. To scale up its operation in the next five years DIGNITY Kwanza intends to use governance as a springboard. The presence of systems and guiding documents are expected to be the driving forces for implementation. External factors that would, positively or adversely, influence the implementation of this Strategic Plan have been analyzed and listed as opportunities and challenges. Opportunities included technological progress as well as advancements in human rights and refugee protection regimes. Anticipated challenges, on the other hand, are diminishing political will for protection schemes for the most marginalized people as well as funding difficulties.
