how we work
Urban Women Vendors
In recent months President John Magafuli has put pressure on local authorities to improve working conditions for machinga. I4ID is harnessing this political will to ensure the needs of women urban vendors are successfully addressed.
We have conducted extensive research with machinga and their advocates to accurately characterise the challenges they face. This ensures municipal authorities are well informed before policy making starts.
Coordination is critical between machinga representatives and the multiple agencies that have an interest in vendor activities - from tax authorities to urban planners. I4ID brings these parties together in regular workshops and coalition events.
