OUR TARGET GROUP
YES- TZ is a youth lead and youth focused organization, our primary target is young people aged 10-24 years from all walks of their lives. We also secondarily target those aged 25-35 as older young people. We work with in school and out of school youth from both rural and urban areas.
Yet young people in Tanzania face many challenges ranging from teenage pregnancies, forced marriages HIV and STIs infections, exclusion from various decisions that affect them and unemployment challenges. Through our flagship activity (providing SRHR education) YES TZ aims to see that Tanzania benefits from demographic dividend. Through SRHR there will be fewer unintended pregnancies, better spacing of children and reduction in sexually transmitted infections including HIV.
