Tanzania Action for Disabled (TAD UK), is a registered Community Interest Organization (CIO) under Charities Commission, UK. It is a research, advocacy/lobbying, training and networking organization of persons with disabilities in Tanzania. TAD is an International Organization practically started in 2012, and formally in 2014 strategically with new initiatives to tackle issues of concern to PWDS from all regions of Tanzania that have for many years and various reasons been left out by stakeholders. Such issues include, but not limited to, Education, Human Rights, Health and Poverty Alleviation and; Good Governance. TAD is an organization was established using a bottom up approach when some of the trustees had worked in different parts of Tanzania where they found out that despite existence of some Disabled Peoples Organization in Tanzania the plight of PWDS as well as their parents left a lot to be desired hence TAD Initiatives.

TAD UK has a general assembly, which are the supreme and policy making organ and a branch in Tanzania that oversees implementation of the projects in Tanzania. The Board of Trustees is comprised of 6 members.

Since 2012, TAD volunteers have been engaged in working with different communities and persons with disabilities especially in 6 regions to develop a grass root based network. This is done with the help of community volunteers (including the disabled) for easy identification and interaction with the local people. This community-based approach is both sustainable and makes a practical sense since it involves community residents and opinion leaders. TAD activities inform the needs assessment findings of this project.

The main goals of TAD are:

a.         To relieve the needs of people with disability in Tanzania, including by assisting them to obtain their full rights and privileges as citizens

b.         To promote any charitable purposes for the benefit of the community in Tanzania, in particular the advancement of education and relieving the needs of orphans and street children.

These goals will be delivered under thematic areas that include; education, human rights, health, economic empowerment, research and documentation. In a bid to realise these objectives TAD will at always ensure that the capacities of PWDS are developed to ensure that they are equipped with skills to articulate and advocate for their rights and inclusion and; Building a strong, effective and democratic organization, with a well-equipped resource centre.
