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.

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.

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.

WASICHANA WALIOZAA CHINI YA UMRI WA MIAKA 20 NA AMBAO WAPO KATIKA MAZINGIRA HATARISHI WAPATA NAFASI NYINGINE YA KUPEWA MAFUNZO NA MITAJI ILI WAWEZE KUJIENDESHA KIMAISHA.

TEYODEN imefanya shughuli ya utambuzi wa wasichana  walio katika mazingira hatarishi ambao pia wamezaa chini ya miaka 20 ili waweze kuwa wanufaika wa mradi wa mwaka mmoja utakao kuwa unawawezesha kusimama upya kama watu wengine katika jamii.Mradi huu unaoendelezwa baada ya kutekelezwa kwa muda wa mwaka mmoja hapo 2011-2012.Moja kati ya matunda ya mradi kwa kipindi cha utekelezaji cha 2011-2012 ni kuwezesha wasichana (kinamama wadogo) 20 kuwa na miradi ya kiuchumi iliyochangia kujiwekea akiba ya sh 1,200,000 benki inayosubili kujenga uwezo wa wasichana wengine zaidi.

Wasichana (wamama wadogo) 8 na mratibu wa mradi wameuhudhuria mafunzo ya siku  6 jijini Arusha kupata mafunzo zaidi ya namna ya kukabiliana na changamoto zilizojitokeza katika kutekelezaji wa mradi huu kwa kipindi kilichopita.

Katika kipindi cha siku 10 zijazo wasichana 60 (20 wanaoendelea na 40 wapya) watapata nafasi ya kuwezesha mafunzo ya stadi za maisha na stadi za ujasiliamali kabla ya kupewa mitaji kwaajili ya kuanzisha  na kuendeleza biashara walizo/watakazoziibua katika maeneo yao kama hatua/shughuli  moja wapo ya mradi huu.

Katika kipindi cha utekelezaji cha 2013-2014 mradi huu utaendelea katika kata za Azimio,Mtoni na Kibada na unategemea kuwanufaisha wasichana wa waliofanya vizuri katika kipindi kilichopita na wasichana wengine wapya.

"Nawakaribisha sana wasichana ambao wamezaa chini ya miaka 20 kujiandikisha kwa wingi kwa watendaji wa mitaa na kata katika zilizotajwa hapo juu ili waweze kusailiwa na kuandikishwa katika orodha ya wanufaika wa mradi" anasema mratibu wa mradi bwana Yusuph Kutegwa.Walimu wa wasichana waliochaguliwa na wasichana wenyewe wakiwa kwenye mafunzo ya uongozi na uwezeshaji,Ukumbi wa Azimio la Arusha jijini Arusha.

 

TEYODEN NA TRA MAKAO MAKUU WAFANYA MAFUNZO KWA VIJANA 100, KUHAM ASISHA URASIMISHAJI WA BIASHARA NA ULIPAJI WA KODI.

Tunasema kuwa hakuna wakati ambao vijana wanahitaji kuongeza juhudi za kujiajiri wenyewe kuliko kipindi hiki.Vijana wengi sasa wameanzisha biashara ili waweze kukidhi mahitaji ya kila siku ya maisha.

Upo umuhimu mkubwa wa vijana kupata elimu mbalimbali ili waweze kundesha biashara zao vizuri ikiwemo elimu ya ujasiriamali,stadi za masha,umuhimu wa usajili wa biashara na ulipaji wa kodi.Mafunzo haya huwafanya waweze kufanya biashara kwa utaratibu na kufuata sheria na kupunguza hatari za kuchukuliwa kama wanavunja sheria na kuhadhibiwa.

Mtandao wa vijana Manispaa ya Temeke(TEYODEN) na Tanzania Revenue Athority(TRA) tumeshirikiana kuwezesha mafunzo ya siku 1 kwa vijana 100 wafanyabiashara kutoka kata 30 za Manispaa ya Temeke.Mafunzo haya yamefanyika katika ukumbi wa Chuo cha utalii,kilichopo Tandika,Temeke Dar-es-salaam.Pamoja na mambo mengine vijana walijifunza umuhimu wa kusajili biashara,umuhimu wa kulipa kodi na elimu ya ujasiriamali.

TRA na TEYODEN tutaendelea kuelimisha wafanyabiashara vijana ndani na nje ya Temeke ili kuwawezesha kufanya biashara kwa uhakika na kuleta tija kwao na kwa vijana wengine.

 

MAFUNZO YA UJASIRIAMALI YANAYOENDESHWA NA MTANDAO WA VIJANA (TEYODEN) YAENDELEA KATIKA WIKI YA TATU.

Sasa imeshafikia wiki ya tatu toka mafunzo ya anzisha na kuza wazo lako la biashara yanayoendeshwa na TEYODEN hapa,Temeke kwa kushirikiana na mwezeshaji kutoka I.L.O yanayosimamiwa na asasi ya Restless Tanzania.

Mafunzo haya yanachukua wastani wa wiki moja kwa kila kundi la vijana 30.Mpaka sasa tumefikia vijana 60 kutoka katika kata 3 ambazo ni Chang’ombe,Keko na kata ya  Kijichi.Shabaha yetu hasa ni kufikia vijana 300 kutoka katika kata zote 30 za manispaa ya Temeke,wafikirie vyema mawazo yao ya biashara,wayakuze na yawezeshe  ajira kwao na kwa vijana wengine.

Tathmini ndogo tuliyofanya kwa walengwa waliopatiwa mafunzo haya,wanasema kuwa, hakujawahi kufanyika kwa mafunzo mazuri ya ujasiriamali kama haya ya wakati huu.Hivyo wanawashauri vijana wengine wa Manispaa ya Temeke kujitokeza na kutumia fulsa hii.

 Utaratibu wa kuomba nafasi hii ya kuwa mmoja wa vijana 300 watakaowezeshwa kupata nafasi ya kuelimishwa ni pamoja na kuchukua fomu,kuijaza na kuirudisha katika ofisi za TEYODEN zilizopo Mtaa wa Bora,karibu na TRA,Katika jengo la Afisa Mtendaji wa kata ya Chang’ombe tunawakaribisha sana vijana wote.

 Note that: Maendeleo ya mtu huletwa na mtu mwenyewe na si vinginevyo.

Mafunzo ya project management Naivasha Kenya yatakuwa chachu ya mabadiliko ya vijana kuelekea ujasiriamali na utengenezaji ajira binafsi kwa vijana.

Siku 8 za mafunzo ya uendeshaji wa miradi yaliyoandaliwa kwa ushirikiano na ILO  y2y fund pamoja na UNHABITAT youth fund zimebadilisha mtazamo wa mameneja 10 kutoka Tanzania.Mameneja hao kwa sasa, wanafikiria kuboresha miradi 10  ambayo ILO wameichagua kati ya miradi 103 iliyoombwa katika mfuko huo wa vijana kwa mwaka 2012.miradi ya mwaka huu imegusia maeneo ya taka ni pato,ulimaji wa mboga mboga kwa njia za kiasili,uongezaji wa thamani katika mazao ya chikichi,uvunaji wa asali,uboreshaji wa sabuni za maji na utengezaji wa batiki,uboreshaji wa bidhaa za ngozi,new chips vending,uboreshaji wa mazao ya muhogo kutengeneza biskuti.

Mameneja watakuwa na kazi kubwa ya kuhakikisha kuwa miradi inakwenda vizuri na kutoa ajira kwa vijana nchini Tanzania.

Mafunzo yalikusanya mameneja wa miradi kutoka nchi za Togo.benin,zambia,kenya uganda,malawi.kongo,Tanzania,mauritius,misri na nyingine nyingi.

Hata hivyo mifuko hiyo itaendeleo kuwezesha vijana barani afrika na kwingineko kuwawezesha vijana kuongeza ajira binafsi kwa kuwa tatizo la ajira rasmi na zenye tija limekuwa ni kubwa sana.
