’Now I understand the approach of social monitoring, I can work with my village leaders and other stakeholders to maintain projects in our community’’
- Bakhresa Salim Salim, Community Monitor in Lukole village – Mpwapwa district.
My name is Angel Beno, I am 24 years old, and I work for Raleigh Tanzania as a skills-based volunteer project officer. I joined livelihood project in 2015 a programme that is designed to educate and fund young people, so they can establish and develop their own businesses by utilising what they have and how to best use it. Luckily this project was introduced in my village (Lulasi village), and since this project is delivered freely, I decided to join and be one of the entrepreneurs. After finishing all the training, I succeeded on getting the funding, however, I turned it down, so I can also be a volunteer and share what I have learnt with other young people.December 23, 2019
