Reintroducing 'Wanazuoni-Tanzanian Intellectuals' to the Public

'Wanazuoni - Tanzanian Intellectuals' is "an informal network that connects ‘young Tanzanian intellectuals’ from different disciplines and professions. The network is a space for exchanging ideas and knowledge/information on and about the intellectual, cultural, social, political, and economical development of Tanzania, Africa and the World at large."

Vision: Wanazuoni's vision is of a Tanzania where citizens produce, use and share information in ways that bring positive social change in all aspects of life.

Mission: Wanazuoni networks to initiate positive social change in Tanzania by sharing useful information, debating key issues and taking constructive actions.

Wanazuoni has over 100 members, most of them being activists working in civil society organisations, journalists based in various media houses and scholars/students in various academic institutions within and without Tanzania. We network through a yahoo group while those who are based in Dar-es-Salaam meet to organize and/or participate in various intellectually stimulating events such as public lectures, youth forums and study groups.Together with 'Study Group - Tanzania', Wanazuoni runs a column known as Tafakuri Tunduizi i.e. 'Critical Thinking' in the Mwananchi newspaper every Tuesday.

Membership is open to all 'young' Tanzanian intellectuals and true 'friends' of Tanzania through subcription to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wanazuoni/
