UNICEF Tanzania’s main objective is to drive results for the most disadvantaged children and young people in the United Republic of Tanzania. Against this backdrop, the Communication, Advocacy and Partnership (CAP) section strives towards driving change for social inclusion and equity by building an enabling environment for social change on one hand, and generating pressure and demand for policy change and development on the other using partnerships as a key strategy. Strategic partnerships are formed on the assumption that if influencers, both online and offline, have access to the right knowledge and issues, they will engage and take appropriate actions within their sphere of influence, resulting in social and policy change.

Engaging young people in change making is another core strategy for the country office. A young people’s agenda was created in 2019 in collaboration with youth and informal partnerships with youth organizations such as FeminaHip, YUNA, and the Junior Council of the United Republic of Tanzania (JCURT) are formed with the purpose to influence decision makers and realizing the agenda. The office’s digital outreach under CAP is another central element in engaging young people. Under CAP’s leadership, a volunteer programme has been established and is in the process of being scaled up with the aim of mobilizing Tanzanians to create movements for social change
