Youth Peacemakers Tanzania is the outcome of the initiatives of working with Youths from general walks of life. The idea of establishing the organization was started in 2011 while operation started in late 2013 by organizing sports camp. The impetus was to link, connect and provide platform to majority youth who are not privileged to go through academic ladders.
The main goal of Youth Peacemakers Tanzania is
Sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and striving for spiritual, intellectual and physical well-being of individuals and wholeness of communities.
It is derived from MATHEW 5:9 “Blessed are the Peacemakers”
Youth Peacemakers Tanzania is thriving for Peace in our undertakings and struggle to make Justice a reality in our communities. When you are poor and struggling to make ends meet, you cannot have peace within yourself because you are suffering. But peace can also not be found when your neighbours, friends and family lives in distress. A community in poverty is a community without peace.
In our striving for peace, Youth Peacemakers Tanzania has launched three main programs aiming at fighting poverty and enhance positive community development:
- Economic Empowerment: Aims at educating and empowering local members through VICOBA (village community bank) at local level. Get involved in addressing economic challenges at national level; and address international barriers in economic development of poor communities. (Network with other stakeholders)
- Democratic Citizenship: Aimed at advocacy on social issues. Empowering through civic education and trainings on doing PETS (Public Expenditure Tracking System and S2C – Subject to Citizen)
- Sports and Arts for Development: Aimed at grooming and building talents of the youths, prepare local and international competitions; encourage participation for physical exercise, talent recognition as a means to self esteem and attract participation in different organization’s programs.
The organization is registered to operate in the whole Tanzania if funds for different programs are available. However, currently the organization serves in districts of Lushoto, Korogwe, Handeni, Tanga and Mkinga.
The world that values equality, Justice and Peace to the poor and marginalized world citizens.
The Youth Peacemakers aims to manifest the Christian message through a genuine involvement of Young Men and Women (physically, mentally and spiritually) by promoting awareness towards God’s creation and their potentialities for self initiative in development and culture, through empowerment, lobbying and advocacy.
