Youth For Change Tanzania launched in August 2015 - and they've wasted no time getting to work!

The Tanzania Team have crammed an unbelievable amount of activity into the past 2 months. They’ve set to work connecting with heaps of organisations such as Restless Development, Raleigh International, Tanzania Youth Vision Associations and YUNA Tanzania, with the purpose of building their coalition of youth-led organisations across Tanzania.
 
The team visited Tanzania’s Mara region - an area with high prevalence of FGM – to speak with survivors and get their perspective on making change in their communities. They met local police to discuss the challenges around tackling FGM, and spoke to traditional and religious leaders to advocate for an end to the practice.
