Purposes and Objectives
The purpose of this gender analysis of parenting practices and socialization processes in selected districts in Tanzania is to generate a body of evidence on good practices and gaps which perpetuate gender inequalities that will inform and strengthen the integration of gender equality perspectives in the implementation of the Responsible Parenting and Family Care (RPFC) Agenda and Movement in Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar respectively.
During the development of the RPFC Agenda efforts were made to try to ensure gender equality integration, however, more is required to understanding gender norms governing parenting practices. As the implementation of the Agenda is still at early stages and will continue for a longer period of time (2019-2030), a gender analysis is critical to improve the integration of gender equality and if necessary, to help to revise the planned interventions to ensure that they are all gender responsive. The findings of the gender analysis of the parenting practices and gender socialization processes in selected districts of Tanzania will primarily inform UNICEF sector programmes supporting the implementation of RPFC Agenda, the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children; Ministry of Education, Science and Technology for Zanzibar: Ministry of Labour, Empowerment, Elderly, Women and Children; Ministry of Education and Vocational Training other Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) and other relevant Media houses, Local Government Authorities (LGAs), FBOs and UN agencies supporting the implementation of the RPFC Agenda to design and implement gender responsive and/or transformative parenting interventions.
