Enabel, the Belgian development agency, has been implementing Belgium's international development policy for almost twenty-five years. Our mission is to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development goals. Every day, our teams strive to build a sustainable and equitable world.

The agency manages more than 170 projects in 21 countries. One of these projects is the Junior Programme, a real professional springboard and a promoter of global awareness. It has been running since 2006.
Its aim is twofold: to promote sustainable international solidarity by recruiting young European talent and enabling them to develop their skills abroad.

Junior Programme
With this vision in mind, the Junior Programme defines itself as a "talent spotter" and a "career booster".
Through their experience talents develop the competences to actively and sustainably engage in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The Junior Programme aims to make them active and critical global citizens who are committed to the SDGs.

The Junior Experts work minimum 1 and maximum 2 years in an Enabel project or in a project of one of the Non-governmental organisations (NGO) that are affiliated with the Junior Programme.
The Junior Programme only accepts young people of maximum 30 years old.

Despite recent overall economic progress, rapid population growth coupled with the impact of climate change and of the global Covid-19 Pandemic, pose significant challenges to the population of Tanzania. This undermines the realization of children’s and women’s rights, disproportionally so in rural areas.
The project aims at the social and economic empowerment of young people, through vocational training, awareness-raising on their rights, prevention of gender-based violence and the establishment of a protective and stimulating environment. The aim is to give adolescents and young people, especially adolescent girls and young women in the Mwanza region access to sustainable educational, professional and economic opportunities.

The project works especially with adolescent girls and young women between the ages of 15 and 24 who will be able to count on the support of their families, their community, schools and community authorities, educational staff of learning centres, junior council, youth saving and loan association and protection committees. The project's activities are implemented by two partners (SEDIT and VETA Mwanza), all two of which are active in engaging young people, protecting against violence and supporting economic empowerment

The project is structured around three main outcomes: (i) protection from discrimination and violence, (ii) inclusive quality education, and (iii) economic empowerment of young people.
