TGNP was formed in 1993 as an activist non-profit organization, and in 2012 was registered as TGNP Mtandao Limited. TGNP emerged through a collective process of critical reflection by leaders of key women’s and gender organisations about the situation of women who are the most exploited and oppressed people within the exploited laboring classes.
TGNP's Ideology and philosophy is built on Transformative feminism, which is a struggle that aims to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women and other marginalised groups, whether due to class, sex, gender, age, ethnicity, disability, geographical and nationality locations.
TGNP has constantly stood firm on her core values and principles on;
- social justice
- human and women’s rights
- contentious discourse
- discrimination against women
- Transformative feminism
- struggle against patriarchy and
