dc.description.abstract Women around the world and particularly in Tanzania have been exposed to social and economic vulnerability due to inherited social cultural and detribalization of the economy. This situation has called upon women to form /organize groups, which will enable them to get away with social economic vulnerability. Women vulnerability is directly related to poverty. In order to eradicate poverty, the need for analyzing its root causes and ways to tackle the problem is of great importance. St Maria Magdalena Women Group is a local CBO, which is working towards poverty reduction in the community with specific focus to vulnerable group of women and children. In order to meet it's over all goal, the organization has to develop a long-term plan, which will guide the organization to achieve its goal. St. Maria Magdalena Woman Group, as a local CBO working in Kilombero District is engaged in vocational skills training to the girls, out of school as a strategy to alleviate poverty in Kilombero among women and community at large. In the process of needs assessment and identification, the involvement of community as beneficiaries was taken into consideration as well as community leaders and stakeholders available in the areas, from district level. The organization was mainly involved in training girls out of school on tailoring skills providing them with startup capital in form of tailoring equipment/machine. Also the organization is providing catering services around the town as a source of income, and conducts community awareness on prevention and control of HIV/AIDS in Kilombero district. It is anticipated that, the project is going to empower women socially and economically since it has an aspect of income generating activities, which will enhance their economical well being as well as increasing women empowerment in resource ownership, and reduce women discrimination.
