A Working Future-Project

Amani Girls Home in collaboration with Plan International Tanzania implements a joint project of the A working Future in Nyamagana MC and Ilemela MC, Mwanza Region. This project is funded by StatOil Norway and Accenture, and in collaboration with Plan Norway and Plan Region of Eastern and Southern Africa (RESA).

The objective of the AWF is that vulnerable youth, especially young women supported by Plan International Tanzania engage in decent work. The AWF aims to achieve this objective by piloting its innovative approach first for twelve months (12) in Mwanza region (Ilemela and Nyamagana districts), Tanzania before replicating and scaling it up to other regions / districts. The AWF approaches the youth employment challenge from a systemic stance by addressing various dimensions and levels simultaneously such as individual skills development; personal views and behavior patterns; adverse societal norms and practices that hinder youth empowerment, especially young women; as well as formal rules, regulations and institutions. The projects aims to empower youth, especially young women, to save and borrow through informal saving group practices, equips them with necessary skills and knowledge, links youth to private sector economic opportunities, and introduces digital tools as project “enablers” to youth, saving groups and financial service providers.
