MARIAM WOMEN AND YOUTH TRAINING CENTER REQUEST FOR FUNDING TO COMPLETE PROJECT
Mariam Adam, a 27-year old Tanzanian mother of one, is asking for assistance in funding the completion of her training center. The center will develop educational and skill capacities for youth and empower women to overcome poverty and unemployment. Mariam has started to build the center but faces the problem in finishing the construction and buying the accessories and equipment necessary to open the center. The cost of finishing the project is Tsh. 16,004,000 (7,300 USD).
My name is Mariam Adam and I am living in a rural area of Morogoro region in Tanzania. Although I come from poor family with one parent guardian (after my Father passed away when I was six month baby yet) I graduated from Dodoma University with a Bachelor of Science in Information systems [Bsc.IS] and a minor in Business Strategies in the year 2015. This is rare in Tanzania, where both the poor and women represent very few of the students in higher education, especially in the sciences and business. Unfortunately, it is even rarer for women to be employed in companies, institutions or government. Since graduation, I have been unable to secure employment in any of these fields. Upon much reflection, I decided to overcome this problem with entrepreneurship – by employing myself and starting my own venture, a community training center to help the fellow women and youths within my community achieve self-employment and overcome poverty through different handcrafts and activities. Given the poverty, unemployment and lack of opportunities in my community, opening this center will help my community and make life better for all of our families, and will also allow them to break the cycle that keeps many of us poor and unemployed.
I am starting this campaign to raise money for my three-rooms training center (see attached photos and budget below) which I already started to build. Finishing the roofing and other construction poses a problem because my income is very limited.
The center will conduct the following training for women and youth:
➔ Soap-making class
➔ Tanzanian Traditional clothes-making and tailoring class
➔ Painting, Art and Home-Decor class
➔ Entrepreneurship and Business opportunity-utilization class.
➔ Computer literacy and Basic Software Applications class
➔ Nutritious food for mothers with children
Please help me [donors, friends and people of good faith] to accomplish my life dream of helping my community! Thank you,
