Our History

TGNP was formed in 1993 as an activist non-profit organization, and in 2012 was registered as TGNP Mtandao Limited.  TGNP emerged through a collective process of critical reflection by leaders of key women’s and gender organizations about the situation of women who are the most exploited and oppressed people within the exploited laboring classes.

TGNP’s Ideology and philosophy is built on Transformative feminism, which is a struggle that aims to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women and other marginalized groups, whether due to class, sex, gender, age, ethnicity, disability, geographical and nationality locations.


A goal is to facilitate the transformative feminist movement that influence and contribute to gender responsiveness of policy formulation and implementation in the areas of Agriculture, Water, Health, Education and Extractive Industries, for equitable resource allocation and sustainable livelihoods
