The LHRC deals with issues of women and children in promoting their rights on the aspect of advocacy for reform/ change of law, policy, and practice. As a result of the growing number of reports on violation of women and children rights LHRC found it vital to design a specified program to systematically identify, track and document incidents of women's rights violations and engage with various institutions and stakeholders for the purposes of calling for accountability, safeguarding and promotion of the group's rights.
Gender and Children program thrives to raise awareness and empower the general public as well as the target groups (women/ children) through seminars, training, workshops and media programs on gender equality, women and children’s rights.
Further, the Unit collaborates with a number of networks that are working on women and children agendas to promote the welfare of women and children in Tanzania.
Internally, LHRC has an effective gender policy known to every staff, paralegals, human rights monitors and all members of the organization. The policy sees the LHRC vision as a noble pursuit, rooted in the best of humanity and consistent with dignity for all. This policy has been mainstreamed into all LHRC programmes.
