Summary

Tanzania has estimated 13 million people living below the poverty line. The government efforts to expand access to social services like education have been undermined by their declining quality as the population grows. Tertiary education graduates have incapability of seeking opportunities due to prevalence of skills mismatch. We have developed the Kuwezesha Project to reduce the skills mismatch by providing opportunities for tertiary learners to innovate and run small entrepreneurial ventures.

Challenge

Despite prior knowledge acquisition that can be secured from pre-primary and secondary to tertiary schools in Tanzania, the ability of academic entrepreneurship education to enhance the tertiary education graduates' ability to identify business opportunities and to thrive under complex market conditions has been very low as prevalence of skills mismatch is evidenced. The skills mismatch impacts employ-ability of more than 100000 tertiary graduates every year.

Solution

Kuwezesha Project will enable at-risk tertiary students in Tanzanians with skill disabilities to improve the quality of their livelihood by building competencies to become employable or be able to start micro-businesses of their own. This will be done by conducting entrepreneurship training through workshops, hackathons, debates, exhibitions, and competitions to stimulate and foster meaningful, associative, and active learning methods.

Long-Term Impact

The project's ling-term impact is the improvement of the competency levels of participants for formal employability and entrepreneurial venturing by exploiting creative ideas generated, activities and projects initiated; demonstrated levels of solutions to challenges, confidence, assertiveness, evidence of pro-active learning, leadership, quality of plans developed, problems solved, quality of presentations made, success in persuasion, time management.
