I have been dreaming to go back to East Africa for five years, now here I am in Arusha, Tanzania!
Through Students Without Borders (SWB) and Uniterra, I am volunteering as a Youth Entrepreneurship Officer for eight months (September 2018 – April 2019). I focus on youth engagement and innovation strategies with Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture (TCCIA).
My primary responsibility here is to foster partnerships with other local institutions, organizations, and youth business groups, in the joint aim of better support for youth employment.
