AWFishNet is collaborating with its partners to implement a project to support women’s livelihoods in the fish value chain in three national chapters in the East Africa region, namely Tanzania Women Fish Workers Association (TAWFA), Association of Women in Fisheries Blue Economy Kenya (AWFBEK), and Uganda National Women Fish Organisation (UNWFO).
