GIVING TUESDAY

Fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving. This global movement inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Over the years, one billion dollars has been donated to nonprofit organizations, creating an enormous impact that lasts all year long.

Why does my donation matter? 

Every year in Tanzania, over 800,000 young people enter a job market where the government is only able to create 50,000 jobs. As part of our mission to empower orphan and vulnerable children so they can reach their full potential and thrive in their communities, we aim to develop entrepreneurship opportunities for young citizens so they can turn dreams into action.

What are we doing to solve the problem? 

This year, we started a partnership with Junior Achievement (JA) Africa in our pursuit to scale and reach young entrepreneurs. JA prepares Africa’s youth for the future of jobs and empowers young people to grow their entrepreneurial ideas and hone their work skills.

Through the JA Company Program, we launched teams in various schools and encouraged students to fill a need or solve a problem in their community by developing their own business venture. The teams recently competed regionally and we are now fundraising for the winning team to compete internationally at the annual Africa Company of the Year competition next month in Nigeria. Our regional winners developed a mobile app, called Kibega, a grocery store delivery service. The team noted challenges at crowded Tanzanian markets and developed this service for people with disabilities, the elderly, and anyone seeking a more seamless grocery shopping experience.

“African markets are crowded and congested. With Kibega App, there is no need for you to go to the market as we will do that for you. Relax and stay in the comfort of your house, office, or car and we will do the shopping for you. Enjoy stress-free grocery shopping.” – The Kibega Team

The Kibega team is excited to present their model, part of the fast-growing food-delivery ecosystem, and hopes to turn the idea into a leading startup in the nation and on the continent but we need your help to get them there. We need to raise $10,000 to fund our winning team’s transportation to Nigeria so they can showcase their innovative idea on the global stage.

Be a part of Giving Tuesday, the global giving movement that harnesses the power of community, to make it possible for the Kibega team to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity in Nigeria!
