The Tanzania Women Research Foundation (TAWREF) was formed in 2010 by a group of experienced researchers and community interventionists. TAWREF is a national organization whose engagement is to conduct evidence based interventions informed by research by using community driven interventions that transform the lives of marginalized population particularly children, youth and women. Marginalization could be caused by abject poverty, impact of diseases such as HIV and AIDS, orphan hood, disabilities and other causes leading to stress and trauma.
