Sauti za Wananchi (Voices of Citizens) is a new initiative that uses mobile phones to regularly collect information from a broad cross-section of Tanzanian citizens. The initiative will allow survey data to be gathered quickly and efficiently, at low cost, to inform citizens of what's going on and to support policy-makers to be more responsive to the needs and aspirations of citizens. More

What's going on in our schools?

Only 1 out of 10 citizens think that most children who finish Standard 2 are able to read and do maths at Standard 2 level. Even worse, only 3 out of 10 (31%) think that these children should be able to perform at the right level; meaning that citizens have no expectation that the education system will actually teach children the skills it is supposed to. This brief examines the state of schools, learning practice and parents’ involvement in their children’s education.

Managing natural resources

Four out of five citizens believe that oil and gas will benefit them, their children and the country. At the same time, four out of ten (37%) believe that people in Government and the rich will benefit the most. More than half of the population (55%) want some of the revenue from oil and gas to be given directly to citizens in cash.

Do health facilities work for people?

Only 1 out of 20 (6%) people over the age of sixty years and 1 out of 5 (18%) children under five years receive free treatment and care at health facilities. Policy states that outpatient services for these two groups are free but citizens report that they are still being charged. Twaweza releases new findings about health facilities.
