5th July 2019

Mradi wa Uwajibikaji wa Jamii Kupitia Vijana (UWAJAKUVI) una lengo la kuongeza kiwango cha mafanikio ya miradi na thamani ya fedha inayotumika kwenye maendeleo katika mkoa wa Dodoma, Iringa na Morogoro itakayonufaisha zaidi ya watu 500,000. Mradi huu utawezesha vijana, wanawake na watu wenye ulemavu zaidi ya 400 ili kushiriki katika ufuatiliaji wa miradi kwenye zaidi ya vijiji 179. Kwa kutumia mfumo bora wa teknolojia ya Application ya DevCheck Development Check. Vijana watajengewa uwezo na kujiamini kuwajibika na kuhimiza jamii nzima kufanya hivyo.

Social Accountability through Youth (SAY) aims to increase the success rate, impact and value for money of development spending in the Dodoma, Iringa and Morogoro regions of Tanzania, benefitting more than 500,000 people. It will do this by empowering over 400 young women and men, including people with disabilities, to effectively and independently monitor project delivery across 179 communities. Through improved reporting systems – such as a dedicated app named DevCheck (Development Check) – and specialised training, these young Tanzanians will gain an increased ability and confidence to hold development organisations to account and encourage their communities to do the same.

So far, 164 young people have been trained on the Community Integrity Building Approach and certified to be Community Monitors. They will be working in 74 communities in Dodoma and Morogoro (30 villages in Morogoro and 44 communities in Dodoma respectively). The CMs (Community Monitors) have been trained to implement Social Accountability through Youth project in their communities. CMs work with their local communities in monitoring the progress of projects. This will involve the formation of Joint Working Groups (JWGs) who will be responsible for finding solutions to challenges and issues that have been raised through monitoring and JWGs
