Challenge

Employers are complaining that graduates lack basic computer skills and soft skills. 61% of graduates can not be employed there don't have the skills needed. 174,149 unfilled job vacancies remained In 2014. Currently, we are working with38 public Secondary schools in Dare-Salaam region and Only 2 schools have active computer labs and none of the schools is investing in teaching the skills needed by the job market the focus is on the core subjects like history, chemistry and biology.

Solution

This project is will be providing access to the internet and computer for the students and youth joining our course and program from the schools we work with and from the general public targeting more youth from a low-income community. The project also will be giving a course for students to learn: 1. Learn How to Learn and Grit, 2. ICT skills: data analysis, communication, presentation and research. 3. Professionalism: etiquette, branding and leadership. For youth to enrich their potential.

Long-Term Impact

This investment will provide a stable computer infrastructure that will enable Bridge for Change to provide stable service to youth in Tanzania It will be contributing to bridging the existing between youth who are studying in private schools with access to computer and youth from public schools with no access to good computer labs. It will enhance digital fluency to youth using the lab and increase their productivity level. It will open opportunities for youth from low-income community
