Tanzania world marathon is the largest national running event gathering Tanzanians living inside and in the diaspora, non-Tanzanians but friends of Tanzania from all over the world, companies, organizations, charities, and any other well-wishers. The main objective is to support moral youth skills development and job creation via the provision of real-time industrial demand-driven skills and emerging technologies needed by employers in this era of the cutting-edge competitive global job market and the ever-growing dynamic needs of the business and technology world.
The event is expected to establish 3500 youth skills development centers/desks (approximately in each ward in Tanzania); that will serve as the coordination and information desk for available employment and business opportunities and organizational skills training programs concerning particular locations and industries demands. The centers will utilize both new and existing infrastructure like ward community development offices, other youth centers, and other entities by providing special customized training programs responding to employment needs.
