Empowering Women SASA is the Swahili word for NOW meaning that the current moment is a foundation for the future


The SASA Woman Foundation was established in 2013 as an NGO in Tanzania. Our main office is located at Moshono, in the suburb of Arusha City.

The charity was born our of our frustration in observing the lack of change and action being taken to support the most socio-economically disadvantaged members of our community.

We knew the best way to make sustainable change was to support women empowerment. Over time we grew into an experienced and trusted foundation with a clear mandate and programs that make measurable impact on the lives of women and children.

Daycare Centers

Care work burdens disproportionately fall on women. This program provides women the time to engage in education and economic pursuits.

Vocational and Skills Training

Women often lack certain skills and knowledge in academic and economic pursuits. We help them learn and grow as confident and empowered entrepreneurs.



We facilitate several banking systems that are entirely funded and operated by women to start, run and grow their businesses.

Health days

Due to a lack of access to quality healthcare, we run open Health Days where the community can receive medical care from trusted professionals.

Life Skills Girls & Boys

We provide gender equality workshops for challenging stereotypes and breaking down barriers to empower girls and encourage boys to be strong allies.


We assist rural communities through capacity-building workshops, workplace’ analysis of gender dynamics as well as legal support for women and children.
