Tanzania’s National Bank of Commerce (NBC) has teamed up with Tumaini University Dar es Salaam College (Tudarco) to train youth on how they would use available opportunities to create employment for themselves and employ others in efforts to promote job creation in the country.
The nine-day entrepreneurship and employment skills training programme will benefit about 300 youths aged between 16 and 35 years from Dar es Salaam, Coast and Morogoro regions. NBC yesterday presented a US$32,000 cheque to the university in facilitation of the training programme which kicked off in Dar es Salaam yesterday.
“Knowledge facilitation to Tanzanians is among the pillars of our bank. We believe that impacting employability and entrepreneurship skills will help fight unemployment, poverty and in the end foster development to individuals and the nation at large. It is my belief that this training will create a very reliable society for a better tomorrow,” said Mr William Kallaghe, the NBC public relations manager during the launch of the programme at Mwenge campus.
The training will focus on employment, entrepreneurship, business plans and proposals and health care — HIV in particular, according to Dr Gilliard Loth, senior lecturer and director of planning at Tudarco.
