Tanzanian youth are numerically the majority, but their number due to current structures and negative attitudes towards young people, not being supportive to young people leading developments concepts and beliefs, their number do not mean or give them a cutting age to access into powers.
YES TZ is passionate to see that young people are a force for positive change in the country, without young people empowerment and creating conducive environment which ensures that young people are participating in political, development, and socioeconomic processes, the transformation we are referring to is not likely to happen.
GENDER BASED VIOLENCE
Gender-based violence occurs in all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. In many societies, including Tanzania, women are socialized to accept, tolerate, and even rationalize domestic violence.
At YES Tanzania we strongly believe that peace is the foundation of everything, as without peace, students can’t go to school, teachers can’t go to school, civil servants can’t go to work, even farms can’t go the fields.
