Social dialogue and quality education in Zanzibar

Pays de mise en œuvre


The project cooperation began in 2003. The current phase of the project began in January 2022 and will run until 2025. The annual project budget of 16,000 € (120,000 DKK) is primarily financed by Danida through the LO/FTF Council.


The goal of the project is further development of a democratic and efficient trade union that strengthens the members professionally as well as socially. ZATU also works on being a recognised social partner vis-à-vis the Zanzibar authorities.


The cooperation aims at capacity building to ensure the quality service to the members. The project shall also strengthen the school representative system and contribute to a better social dialogue. Parallel to this programme has been supporting to less qualified teachers through a professional training programme.

The Tanzania Teachers Union (TTU) has assisted ZATU in training its local leaders in accordance with the principle of south-south cooperation, where the most developed countries and organisations help and assist the less developed ones. ZATU has held a series of conferences with participation from central and local authorities. Pedagogical development, labour market/public sector legislation and the relationship between teachers and government have been the main issues discussed. The conferences have contributed to the authorities having a better understanding and appreciation of the role of ZATU as a positive ally in further developing the educational sector in Zanzibar.
