DSW Tanzania is a Country Office of the global development organisation Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevölkerung (DSW). DSW Tanzania’s Head Office is in the Arusha Region, as well as liaison offices in Dar es Salaam, Mbeya and Dodoma. DSW Tanzania’s vision is for a healthy and sustainable Tanzania in which all young people can realize their full potential. To unleash this potential, DSW empowers young people, creates an enabling environment and fosters inclusive and meaningful participation. 

To achieve this, we are working with various measures:

– The establishment and strengthening of youth clubs, as well as capacity building in prevention of gender-based violence (GBV), life skills, reproductive health (RH), entrepreneurship and leadership.

– The establishment of Youth Empowerment Centre (YECs) and Safe Space for Girls as hubs for exchange and knowledge sharing in the areas of gender-based violence (GBV), economic activities, referrals, linkages and reproductive health.

– Building the capacity of civil society organizations to ensure effective implementation of programmes in regards to policies, guidelines and priorities of Tanzania for youth development.

DSW has been part of the development and contributes to national policies, strategies and guidelines including national youth development policy, the National Acceleration Investment Agenda for Adolescent Health and Wellbeing (NAIA-AHW) 2021/22-2024/25; National Family Planning Coasted Implementation Plan 2019-2023; National Life Skills Manual; Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSP) (July 2021- June 2025; The National Road Map Strategic Plan to Improve Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn Child and Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RMNCAH+ N) – One Plan III (2021- 2025) to mention a few.

We are a learning organisation collaborating with sectoral ministries aligned with youth sector.
