Rosa Olokweni (Mokoro WOLTS Project)

This short article, first published by Mokoro in December 2022 and now available on The Land Portal, highlights some of the impacts of the Women’s Land Tenure Security (WOLTS) project’s work in Tanzania from 2016 to 2023. The author, who is a gender and land champion in her Maasai community, explains the confidence she has acquired from undergoing WOLTS training to help her protect her community’s land and resolve a difficult dispute with a neighbouring village.
