Finally, thank you to Dorothy Ernest, who previously filled this position. We are grateful for her sterling and tireless efforts and contributions towards building the MenEngage Tanzania network over the last few years.

However, Dorothy is not lost to our cause. She has moved to CDF’s Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Department where we will still notice her contributions to our work with men and boys to foster a culture that upholds gender equality and transformation in our societies. So, congratulations on your new appointment, Dorothy!
