The Tanzania Human Rights Defenders Coalition (THRDC) has signed a one-year agreement worth 180,000 Euros (470 Million Tanzanian Shillings) with Frontline Defenders based in Ireland to support the Coalition’s Strategic Plan to safeguard and defend Human Rights Defenders (HRDs) in Tanzania.

The agreement was officially signed on 05/10/2021, and its implementation will commence earlier this month and run until the end of 2022. The funds will be used to facilitate the training and protection of HRDs and implement THRDC strategic activities.

This project is expected to promote and strengthen human rights defenders’ works in Tanzania, including fortifying their relationship with government institutions.
