Youth na Demokrasia  Champions Program

Imara Leadership Initiative (ILI) Tanzania aims to recruit and establish a youth na demokrasia champions network across the United Republic of Tanzania as part of the WYDE Civic Engagement Initiative to bringing together young leaders from the United Republic of Tanzania in online and offline sessions who are working on creative and innovative solutions to bring more accountability to democratic governance.

We are  looking to establish the 1st cohort of  ‘Youth na Demokrasia Champions‘  to help champion for democracy accountability in i) Sharing innovative models to curb the threat that mis- and disinformation poses to  young people during electoral processes where young people are at target , ii) Champion to stop negative myths on registering to vote and low turnout of youth voters being attributed by low trust in the credibility of the voting system.
