Constitution

From its establishment in 1995, Legal and Human Rights Centre has been forging for the attainment of the people-centered constitution in Tanzania. To complement the effort, LHRC designed a specific program to oversee, organize and coordinate all activities and interventions around constitutional change.

The program frontlines all movements that aim at attaining citizens centered constitution by accomplishing the following:

  • Employ participatory, interactive and structured civic education, take the lead in engaging Tanzanians to develop the kind of constitution that they want and ensure that their voices are not scraped.
  • Engage in movements aiming at driving citizens to demand constitutional change and empower them to be able to uphold their interests in the constitution.
  • Forge new alliances with other CSO's, faith-based organizations, trade unions, universities and people from distinct locations, sectors, movements, ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds so that there is a critical mass of Tanzanians demanding a constitution that embraces public interests.
  • Empower marginalized communities and special groups such as women and children to demand the constitution that guarantees their welfare.
  • Invest on informal rural civic awareness on the constitution, human rights, and responsibilities.
