Investing in New Ventures of Entrepreneurial Students in Tanzania (INVEST)

The INVEST project aimed to address the challenge of the agricultural training education system in Tanzania, which was seen to be disconnected from labor market demands. INVEST’s overall goal was to strengthen the long-term employment prospects of youth (male and female) in the Ministry of Agriculture Training Institutes (MATIs) so they are equipped for employment upon graduation. The project assessed and revised the MATIs’ curriculum based on the labor market needs and provided in-depth teacher training; created an innovation challenge fund to award startup capital to students with entrepreneurial ideas; and formalized public-private sector partnerships into an internship program to further practical learning and lead more students directly to employment.
