In 2020/2021 Paradigm Initiative (PIN) after assessing the state of digital rights in Africa discovered that there is a challenge of little or no understanding of digital rights among policy and law makers in African countries. Therefore, in order to provide solutions to these challenges, PIN secured a fund through the US state department on Democracy, Human Rights & Labour (DRL) to increase awareness through workshop to the said group. This project aims at ensuring expansion of digital rights to legislator’s, policy makers and other stakeholders in African continent. This will help the improvement of both legal and institutional frameworks in the continent. This project targeted various counties in Africa including Tanzania.
The objective of the DRL Civil Society Policy Shaping Workshop
- Expanding the reach and deepening content of digital rights training workshops with legislators and policy makers across the continent
- Expanding the reach and deepening the content of our digital rights workshops across Africa
With the above explanation, this is why Paradigm Initiative (PIN) contracted Zaina Foundation as a country host to implement this project in Tanzania. In February 14-17th, 2022 DRL Policy shaping workshop was conducted in Hyatt Regency, Dar es salaam Tanzania for CSO’s, government institutions, academia, HRD’s, media and lawyers.
