Prize Winner Edward Loure Champions Indigenous Women Pastoralists

June 26, 2018

Based in his native Tanzania, 2016 Goldman Environmental Prize winner Edward Loure’s organization Ujamaa Community Resource Team (UCRT) has worked on community land rights and sustainable development in the country’s northern region for over 20 years. A champion of land rights and indigenous communities, Loure serves as UCRT’s Program Coordinator for the Simanjiro district.

This June, Loure has campaigned to raise funds for UCRT through Global Giving’s Accelerator program. A leading crowdfunding platform, Global Giving’s Accelerator provides organizations the skills and resources needed to activate supporters and strengthen key programs. UCRT’s campaign focuses on strengthening its partnership with the Women’s Rights and Leadership Forum in Mureru Village, which empowers indigenous women agro-pastoralists through innovative income generation projects. Through the end of June, you can make a positive impact on UCRT and the economic empowerment of women agro-pastoralists in Tanzania.
