National Gender and Sustainable Energy Network Strengthening Project (NGSEN-SP). Tanzania 2010
The National Gender and Sustainable Energy Network (NGSEN) is a professional network for engendering and developing energy in Tanzania. The network is a non-governmental, nonprofit making organisation, non political and gender sensitive. NGSEN was established in 1998 with the main purpose of empowering women in order to increase their involvement in the energy sector through networking and sharing of information. Members of NGSEN include individuals and institutions actively involved in gender and energy sectors. It has links with regional and international networks. In 2010 ENERGIA supported its local partner and focal point for NGSEN, TaTEDO, in a seed funding program with the goal of strengthening the network.
