Empowering and Inspiring the Boundless Potential of Youth.

Since our inception in 2020 as KijanaPlus Platform (KPP), our journey has been rooted in connecting, empowering, and transforming the lives of young individuals across Tanzania.

Who are We?

We are KijanaPlus for Youth Organization.

Evolving from a digital platform to an officially registered organization in August 2023 (Registration No. 00NGO/R/5682), our mission intensified.
