‘Cycle of Transformation’ (CoT) is a 3-year ICT4D innovation project grant from DFID. WV Tanzania is implementing the project in collaboration with 4 private and 8 public partners, including Tanzania Ministry of Education, and Vocational Training (MoEVT), Vocational Education Training Authority (VETA, Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA), Small Industries Development Organization (SIDO), Tanzania Ministry of Labor, Youth, Employment and People with Disability, and international partners Cisco, Intel Corporations, Microsoft, and World Vision US.

The project aims to empower 4,500 with hands-on experience in ICT vocational and entrepreneurship skills, integrating 21st century skills to enable youth to effectively use technology, think critically, solve problems, manage information and knowledge, as well as lead, communicate and collaborate. The specific objectives of this project are:
• Influence education reforms in Tanzania to include hands-on ICT vocational and entrepreneurship skills.
• Engage the Ministry of Labor & Employment to identify policies that can better emphasize strategic and intentional youth empowerment efforts, toward alleviation of the youth unemployment crisis.
• Introduce a partner’s youth empowerment hub that will be hosted at the MoL to harmonize youth empowerment efforts and align partner’s resources toward collective impact efforts.
• Influence endorsement by the Ministry of Science, Education and Technology through introduction of this technology innovation project, which will integrate the school-based student run enterprise (SBSRE) approach within vocational and secondary schools in Tanzania.
• Create a Youth Portal (Employability Platform): www.fursaworks.org developed in collaboration with Microsoft to connect youth with resources to enhance and develop skills needed to compete within the workforce.
