Tanzania: Getrude Mongera counsels on women

By Emmanuel Onyango

A long serving politician and activist Getrude Mongela has called on the government and civil society groups to empower women by providing them with capital to invest in entrepreneurship activities.

Mongela, who led women groups in Beijing meeting on global women welfare  two decades ago, issued the concern last week during women’s day celebrations.

The women’s day was organised by the Eco-Bank in Tanzania pledged to scholarship to finance female students who perform better in their subjects in public schools in the country.

“The program will also enable students acquire hands on skills and experiences in order to become knowledgeable,” she said.

Mongela pleaded for help from workers of Eco-Bank not to disappoint the decision by the bank in its dedication or commitments to ensure that it bridge the equality between men and women on 50 by 50 basis.

She said as the nation is striving for the industrialization programme, Eco-Bank which is being led by a woman ought to fight for the legal rights of women so that they might also have to contribute effectively into national economy.

Mongela has also urged women in the country who are economically empowered should make use of the opportunity to help others who are still lagging behind in terms of social and economic development.

Despite her being in the forefront, children whom she says have to be promoted as they also have the right of gender sensitivity.

She called on women at every place of work in the country to diligently empower others especially those living in rural villages economically as this is the only way to change a woman’s life into becoming better.
