TEYODEN YASHIRIKIANA NA WILAC KUJENGA UWEZO WA VIJANA KUKABILIANA NA UKATILI DHIDI YA WANAWAKE.

Katibu waTEYODEN mwenyekiti na Mkurugenzi wa WILAC wamefanya kikao cha makubaliano ya ushirikiano ili kuwezesha vijana kuchukua majukumu katika kuhakikisha kuwa matatizo ya ukatili dhidi ya wanawake katika Halamashauri ya Manispaa ya Temeke unapungua.

Mwenyekiti wa TEYODEN alimwambia Mkurugenzi wa WILAC kuwa mradi huu unahitajika sana kwetu Temeke kwa kuwa asilimia zaidi ya 60 wanawake wanaofanyiwa ukatili huu ni vijana kati ya miaka 15-35 ambao ni umri ambao TEYODEN unaufanyia kazi.WILAC na TEYODEN tutashikiana kwa muda wa miezi 6.

Pichani ni vijana wa Kata ya Tandika mara baada ya kutoka kwenye mafunzo:-

TEYODEN yaendesha mafunzo ya ujasiriamali kwa vijana.

Mtandao wa vijana upo katika harakati za kuinua uelewa wa vijana katika masuala ya  ujasiriamali kwa vijana ambao wapo tayari kubadilisha maisha yao kutokana na kubadili mitazamo yao kutoka kukaa tu vijiweni au kumaliza shule/chuo na kulandalanda mtaani bila kufanya chochote.Takwimu zinazotokana na sensa ya watu ya mwaka 2012 inaonyesha vijana ni asilimia karibu 60 ya watu wote nchini na vilevile kwa mujibu wa sera ya maendeleo ya vijana Tanzania vijana ni asilimia 68 ya nguvu kazi ya taifa lakini vijana ndio wahanga wakuu katika upatikanaji wa ajira nchini.Hivyo mbadala pekee kwa ajira umebaki kuwa ujasiriamali na uzalishaji mali. 

Lengo letu ni angalau kuwafanya vijana wabadili mitazamo kutoka mawazo ya kuajiliwa au kukaa tu vijiweni na kuanza kufikiria kijasiriamali kwa kubadili mawazo yao ya kawaida kuwa mawazo ya kijasiriamali na miradi ya kiuchumi.

Mafunzo yanategemewa kuwa ya siku 5 yameanza tarehe 8 na yataisha tarehe 12 mwezi huu wa sita mwaka 2016.Baada ya mafunzo haya kuisha tunategemea kuendeleza kwa vijana wengine mpaka tufikie idadi ya vijana 100.Vijana wanakaribishwa kutoka nyanya na umri tofauti kuja kupata mafunzo.

 

USHIRIKI WA MTANDAO WA VIJANA NA MATUKIO YA SIKU YA UKIMWI DUNIANI TAREHE 1/12/2014

MABADILIKO KWA WALENGWA WA MRADI WA MABINTI WALIO PEMBEZONI YAENDELEA KUONEKANA.

“Mafunzo ya stadi za maisha,elimu ya ujasiriamali na uwezeshaji wa mtaji wa kuanzia biashara umenifanya nibadilishe mtazamo na matendo yangu kuelekea kwenye hatua za mabadiliko”anasema Nuru Matimbwa,Mnufaika wa mradi wa Mabinti walio na watoto chini ya umri wa miaka 20.

Nuru Matimbwa ambaye kwa sasa anasaidia wasichana wengine takribani 10 katika ofisi yake kujifunza masuala ya ushonaji wa nguo za kina mama na biashara ya kuuza khanga na batiki, alikuwa katika kipindi kigumu baada ya kuzalishwa na kutekelekezwa na mchumba wake aliyemdanganya kuwa atamuhudumia kwa kila kitu.Baada ya mafunzo na uwezeshaji alipata matumaini mapya na kuendelea.Ukifika katika ofisi yake utawakuta wasichana takribani 4 wakiwa katika mashine zake, wakibadilishana kwa shifti akiwafundisha ujuzi huo wa kushona ili nao waweze kujiajili.

Nuru anawashauri vijana wengine wakike kuwa wasidanganywe na wavulana na kujikuta wanaharibu mtiririko wa maisha yao kwa kupata watoto kabla ya muda muafaka.Mtoto ni jambo la msingi na la lazima lakini ni vyema kuzaa wakati umeshajiandaa kwaajili ya makuzi na ustawi wa mtoto huyo.Anawashauri wakumbuke kuwa malezi ya mtoto kwa asilimia zaidi ya 70 yanamtegemea mama ambaye nae pia ni mtoto hivyo sio rahisi kulea watoto katika umri mdogo

.”nawashauri msome jamani,kwa ambao tayari mmeshafanya makosa msikate tamaa” anamalizia Nuru

Mnufaika huyu wa awamu ya pili ya mradi kutoka kata ya Azimio ameweza kupata nafasi kadhaa za mafunzo na safari nje ya Dar-es-salaam ili aweze kukuza uelewa wake zaidi.

Mradi wa mabinti walio pembezoni ni hatua ya mwanzo katika kuwasaidia mabinti ambao wamepata mimba katika umri mdogo na wanaoishi katika mazingira hatarishi.Mradi huu unatekelezwa katika kata 3 za Azimio, Mtoni na Kibada na umewezesha wasichana kujitambua na kuchukua hatua mpya katika kujitegemea na kusaidia watoto wao.

      

VIJANA MANISPAA YA TEMEKE SASA KAENI MKAO WA KULA.

TEYODEN katika hatua ya kutia moyo wamepata nafasi ya kuwa na mwalimu wa ujasiriamali aliyewezeshwa na ILO kupatiwa mafunzo ya anzisha na kuza wazo la biashara.Start and improve your business idea (SIYB).

Baada ya mafunzo haya,moja ya kazi za mwezeshaji huyu ni kuhakikisha kuwa vijana na wafanyabishara wengine wanakuwa wafanyabiashara zenye kuleta tija na kuondoa mazoea ya kufanya biashara kienyeji.

TEYODEN inategemea kutengeneza mpango kabambe wa kuwafanya vijana ambao hawana biashara lakini wanamawazomazuri ya biashara kuyaweka katika mpango maalumu wa kuyatekeleza,kuyatafutia mitaji na kuyatekeleza kwa vitendo.Lakini pia wale ambao tayari wanabiashara kuboresha biashara hizo ili zitoe tija na zizalishe ajira kwa vijana wengine. 

Wakati ukiwa tayari hapo baadae mwishoni mwa mwezi wa Mei programu hii itaanza na kunufaisha vijana.Wazo ni kufikia angalau vijana 600 wa kata 30 za manispaa ya Temeke.

Entrepreneurship for All -- A New Approach to Youth Development

The hot new topic at global economic conferences that I've attended recently -- including events at the Aspen Institute, Youth Business International, the World Economic Forum, and the Clinton Global Initiative -- is the urgent need to expand entrepreneurship training opportunities for young people in light of today's highly constrained job market. I fully applaud this focus, but want to recommend a whole new approach to it. Let me explain.

Over the past few years, it has become clear that the private sector simply cannot create enough jobs to keep pace with the vast numbers of young people entering into the job market every year. That's why there is a growing chorus in support of teaching them the basics of building and growing their own start-ups. If you can't find a job, the saying goes, create your own.

But we need to ask ourselves, to what extent can entrepreneurship really help to alleviate the global unemployment crisis? Let's take a look. Youth Business International estimates that one in five young people has the potential to become an entrepreneur, yet only five in one hundred do so. IYF believes that expanding entrepreneurship training, mentoring, and other opportunities for the remaining 95 percent of those seeking to start their own ventures is critically important if they are to earn a living, support their families, and contribute to their communities. Across Africa and the Middle East, IYF is currently rolling out Build Your Business, a curriculum and training program developed in partnership with Microsoft. Over the next few years, the initiative aims to support thousands of young people who aspire to transform their business ideas into real profit-making enterprises.

But experience has shown us that entrepreneurship training, at least in the traditional sense, is not the only answer to help close the youth employment gap. Whether we're talking about entrepreneurs "of necessity" -- meaning those often at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder who are shut out of the private sector and forced to survive by selling vegetables on the street or making handicrafts for local tourists -- or entrepreneurs of "opportunity" who are frequently already employed but have a real flair for the innovative and an instinctive feel for how to run a business - the numbers at this point just don't add up. Think about it. A billion new jobs need to be created to absorb the demographic "youth bulge" over the next decade.

So I believe we must start thinking about a different approach that teaches "entrepreneurial" skills to a broader group of individuals who could benefit from them. What has struck me recently, and what I've begun to talk about in these economic forums, is the notion that all of us need to be entrepreneurial. It is not just the struggling shop keeper in Buenos Aires or the young woman in India who wants to start her own crab breeding business who need that training and support -- but every young person who seeks to get ahead, shape their own futures, and contribute to their communities.

Why not recommend an "entrepreneurship for all" approach? The skills necessary to open a successful business are closely related to those needed to compete in the 21st Century job market: thinking "outside" the box; pushing the envelope; engaging in risk taking; and learning how to creatively solve problems, deal with conflicts, and work in teams. These competencies, often called life and employability skills, are desperately needed by today's employers -- whether the job openings are in a local business or government agency; in schools, universities, hospitals, and policy institutes; or civil society organizations. Why limit teaching these skills to a small sub-set of 'emerging' entrepreneurs, when everyone needs them to successfully navigate in today's world?

A young woman who runs the INJAZ program in the Middle East told the audience at this year's Clinton Global Initiative that while the Arab "Spring" has sadly turned into the Arab "Storm," these ongoing upheavals have forced young people to change and adapt. Instead of waiting for the government or the local company to hire them, they recognize they have to create their own jobs. Instead of waiting for someone else to rebuild their shattered communities, they realize they have to mobilize the people, resources, and ideas to do so. To succeed in this ever changing, always evolving world, young people everywhere need to embrace the entrepreneurial spirit. Fortunately, today's youth already have an abundance of creativity and the courage to tackle our toughest problems with fresh ideas. They are the change makers. Our job is to nurture that boundless potential for innovation in each one of them.
