People making a difference in education and democracy
Introduction
HakiElimu is a non-profit civil society organization. It is registered as a company limited by guarantee, and does not have a share capital that is registered under the Companies Ordinance (Chapter 212, Laws of Tanzania).

HakiElimu was founded in 2001 by a group of 13 Tanzanians who had formed a clear and longstanding commitment to transform public education for all children, having noted that education in Tanzania was in a mess, and that the many attempts to reform it had appeared to go nowhere.

It seemed clear to this group that the local education had not improved much because technocratic solutions were being applied to essentially political problems, and that the volumes of technically sound documents produced by policy reform officials were not quite relevant because they were not taking into account the politics of institutional change in Tanzania.

With this in mind, the founders of HakiElimu sought to create an organization to enable the ordinary citizens to get involved for them to make a difference in the education sector. They believed that education would improve when ordinary citizens became involved in effecting that change; creating meaningful public participation in education governance. Therefore, we could say that HakiElimu is an experiment to see whether schools can be governed in an inclusive, open and democratic fashion; and whether the poor can access the relevant information and influence policy and practice.

The founding members and board of directors of HakiElimu include leaders of: civil society organizations, Universities, media houses, legal institutions, and research and development institutions in Tanzania. Collectively, they bring more than 20 years of solid experience and leadership to HakiElimu.
