About Lifted Stong

Two women joined forces in early 2019 to establish Lifted Strong Community Organization (LISCO). They saw the need for education, empowerment and advocacy amongst women in the Arusha region. Living in a male dominated community, Eva and Joyce knew something had to be done to change the views women had about themselves and the gender roles that have impacted their lives. They met through NGO work and their passion to inspire, enrich, and support the economic and social development in Tanzania is the beating heart of Lifted Strong.
