PAMOJA TUNAWEZA BOYS & GIRLS CLUB

Tanzania

The PTBGC is all about empowering locals. The Club is run by seven local leaders, many of whom came from the streets and were able to turn their lives around through selling art. Empowering our leaders to run the Club ensures local ownership, while also giving our Club members local mentors to look up to.

About

The Club services the most vulnerable and at-risk youth in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania. We provide a safe and healthy environment where young people can develop the skills necessary for a sustainable future. With 66% of Tanzania’s population under the age of 25, and 53.5% of unemployed Tanzanians being youth between the ages of 15-24 years old, we hope to make a significant impact on the cycle of poverty that persists. By focusing on youthwhom are often left out of national and international aid programs, we aim to empower these young men and women to reach their full potential and become productive, self-sustaining, responsible members of the community.
