Daraja is based in Njombe, in Iringa region of Southern Tanzania. This helps to ensure that our work is deeply rooted in the life of rural Tanzania. Njombe and the surrounding area will act as a testing ground for our ideas before they are scaled up – either by Daraja itself or by partners.
Daraja translate the idea of accountability in the community level using three programmes; We use the following approaches.
1. Work with local government, so that officials are better able to respond to communities
2. Work with local communities, so that they are more aware of their rights and better able to hold government to account
3. Improve links between government and communities, creating opportunities for debate and discussion.
