Promoting women-led businesses in Tanzania


WanaWAKE-UP! is the fusion of two words and two languages. “Wanawake” means women in Swahili, the official language of Tanzania, also spoken in many other East-African Countries. “Wake-up!” is an English exhortation to arouse and get-up.

WanaWAKE-UP! is our personal invitation to Tanzanian business women, to wake-up, to get conscious of their big impact, to rise and shine.
