The millennial girl is an event designed to prepare young women to become responsible and independent women in the society. It aims to transfer knowledge, expose them to opportunities and create a network of women who aspire to stand out in everything they do, as business leaders, employees, students, mothers, wives or any position a woman stands in Tanzania. The millennial girl event focuses on breaking cultural barriers hindering women productivity, instilling new mindset and knowledge to reduce women dependency and increase the skilled girl effect. It aims to make young women financially independent, socially responsible, healthy, and leading change in their families married or not married. The millennial girl focuses on women between 15-35 years of age. is also an opportunity to accelerate efforts towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8 to increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship’.She’s Bold network is behind this good work and continues to add more value. Here is the recap of the most highlighted points
find your mentor
Her Excellence, Sarah Cooke visited Tanzania years ago, by then she never had any idea that one day, she will be a High commissioner in the country that she’s touring. But she admits that it is through mentor ship, she is now a High commissioner and still continues to have mentors. She has also committed herself to mentor girls below the age of 25 in Tanzania. This teaches us that, having a dream alone is not enough, we need people who know more or have more experience in our area of interest to guide, correct and encourage us. Here is the challenge for you, do you have a mentor? If not, find one.
Never stop learning…HE Sarah Cooke, British High Commissioner to Tanzania.
Unemployment is not a problem.
Yes, it is not. Mr. Elibariki Shammy a very good analyst of development issues. He started by defining a ‘job’ in other words a ‘work that pays’. He said, we have never run out of works, there are so many works around us to do. The only problem is we don’t have young people who are ready for any work.Therefore there is no absence of jobs,we only do not see them. Here is my take, if the graduates are many than the companies and institutions existing what are we going to do? We need to do these works which we think they are not for the educated, and do them like the educated.
There is profit in every work…..Elibariki Shammy.
