Founded in 1997, African Initiatives is a Bristol-based international development charity. We collaborate with eight grassroots partner organisations based in three regions of northern Tanzania – Arusha, Kilimanjaro and Manyara. Our primary aim is to empower the most marginalised individuals (women, girls, and people living with HIV/AIDS and/or a disability) to overcome barriers to achieve improved decision-making power in relation to their personal educational learning outcomes, health and well-being, and livelihoods and resilience.

Our Strategic Plan (2017-2022) summarises African Initiatives’ ambitions and priorities for the next five years; priorities focus on women and girls, disability-inclusion and partnerships. Our plan is embedded in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all by addressing important global challenges including gender equality, good health and well-being, and clean water and sanitation.
