What a year 2020/2021 has been! In a challenging context for all, here at IYF Tanzania Country Office, we have seen the outcomes we envisioned for Via Jiandalie Ajira come to life together with our partners. In a period of five years, IYF Tanzania has collaborated with VETA and TECC to drive sustainable change within the area of youth development by integrating market-responsive skills and services into respective curriculums and improving pedagogy through the Via Jiandalie Ajira program. To date, the
program has transformed the lives of 16453 young people by ensuring access to better economic opportunities.
IYF Tanzania hopes that the investments we have made so far will continue to pay dividends by preparing future graduates and young entrepreneurs to succeed in Tanzania’s labour market. And enabling them to increase their productivity as they grow or be part of sustainable businesses that build the wealth of Tanzania and its individuals.
Via Pathways to Work is an IYF initiative implemented in Tanzania and Mozambique, in partnership
with the Mastercard Foundation to deliver two components: entrepreneurship and employability.
Via: Pathways to Work takes a systems approach to support the national Vocational Education and
Training (VET) systems to be more responsive to the needs of young people and industry. Via: Jiandalie Ajira initiative was launched in 2015, with the aim of improving economic opportunities for youth through sustainable changes. The programme covered VETA Mtwara, Dar-es-salaam and Dodoma and MVTCC. For TECC, the above regions were covered and Pwani region was also included.
