Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa Taasisi ya Jenga Hub ambae pia ni Miss Tanzania wa zamani Nancy Sumari (kushoto), wakitiliana saini na Taasisi isiyokuwa ya kiserikali ya Kids Finance na Tracy zilizoanzishwa na msichana wa miaka 11, Tracy Rabi, kwaajili ya makubaliano ya kufanya kazi pamoja yenye lengo la kuwasaidia watoto wa Kitanzania namna bora yamatumizi ya fedha na ujasiliamali wengine pichani ni Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa Programu ya Mipango Lilian Makoi, Mwanzilishi wa program ya Natokaje kidigitali Gertrude Mligo, hafla hiyo imefanyika jijini Dar es Salaam.

Dar es Salaam | Taasisi isiyokuwa ya kiserikali ya Kids Finance na Tracy, zilianzishwa na msichana wa miaka 11, Tracy Rabi ambaye leo ametia saini mkataba wa makubaliano na Miss Tanzania wa zamani na mwanzilishi wa Jenga Hub, Nancy Sumari, kwa ajili ya ushirikiano wa kufanya kazi pamoja kwa kuwapa elimu ya kisasa watoto wa Kitanzania juu ya ujasiriamali nan a matumizi mazuri ya fedha.

Ushirikiano huo pia umejumuisha Natokaje Kidigitali, iliyoanzishwa na Getrude Mligo. Natokaje Kidigitali imekuwa ikijihusisha na watoto wenye umri wa kuanzia miaka 8 hadi 17 kwa kushirikiana na mfanyabiashara aliyepata mafanikio makubwa Mohammed Dewji na wakongwe kama Gillsant Mlaseko.

Wamekuwa wakiwapa watoto fursa ya kujifunza kutoka kwa watu wenye vipaji nchini.Nancy alisema kuwa amekuwa akiendesha taasisi yake kwa mafanikio makubwa katika kipindi cha zaidi ya miaka mitatu sasa na kuwasaidia kujifunza masuala mbalimbali ya kibiashara yanayokwenda sambamba na teknolojia ya kisasa.

Msichana mwenye umri wa miaka 11, Tracy Rabi, sio tu anaandika vitabu vya kifedha na ujasiriamali kwa watoto lakini pia alianzisha Maonyesho ya Uzoefu wa Ujasiriamali kwa Vijana wa Tanzania ambayo hukusanya pamoja watoto wenye miradi ya ujasiriamali ili kuonyesha na kuuza bidhaa zao kwa watoto wengine, kama njia ya watoto ya kujaribu na kujifunza ujuzi wa ujasiriamali tangu wakiwa na umri mdogo.

Taaisi hizi tatu zimeungana pamoja ili kutoa fursa ya aina yake kwa watoto wa Tanzania kuongeza nafasi ya kujifunza ujasiriamali na kuja kuwa wafanyabiashara wakubwa nchini.

Hii pia inakwenda sambamba na lengo la Serikali la kuhakikisha kuwa kizazi kijacho kinapata teknolojia na vifaa muhimu vya kisasa ili kuendanana na kasi ya teknolojia. Kuboresha upatikanaji wa teknolojia ni moja ambayo ni ajenda kuu ndani ya sekta ya mawasiliano haswa, kwa njia ambazo zinafaidisha vizazi vipya.

Kampeni hiyo inayoitwa Children Bootcamp, imeanzishwa mwaka huu ambapo inatarajia kusaidia watoto zaidi ya 200 kutoka katika maeneo mbalimbali ya Tanzania.

Ninaamini kwamba sio mapema kwa vijana kuanza kujifunza kuhusu biashara na fedha kama watoto, tunatumia zaidi ya miaka 16 shuleni kupata ujuzi wa kutusaidia kupata pesa, ni muhimu watoto wawezeshwe kupata pesa, kuweka pesa na ujuzi wa kukuza pesa, kuwasaidia kuepukana na umaskini au mitego ya madeni inayosababishwa na ukosefu wa elimu ya kifedha,” alisema Tracy Rabi.

Watoto wanatakiwa kuelewa hatua za awali za kuhifadhi fedha, thamani ya fedha, kuanzisha biashara na kujua mbinu za kuendesha biashara ambazo ni hatua muhimu kwa haki za binadamu,” alisema Rabi.

Tunafurahi pia tutakuwa na program za watoto na zinazopatikana Tracy Kids Finance ambaye zinaonyesha kuwa hata watoto wadogo wanaweza kupata ujuzi na kuwajengea mazingira ya kuwa wafanyabiashara wenye mafanikio. Ujuzi upo wa unapatikana katika ulimwengu tunaoishi kwa njia ya za kidijitali,” aliongeza.

Nancy Sumari aliongeza “Tumejipanga kuleta mapinduzi katika kuwajengea uwezo watoto kwenye vitengo vifuatavyo:

● Elimu ya Fedha
● Elimu ya Kidijitali
● Ujasiriamali

Vodafone renews its relationship with Workplace to build bridges in a hybrid world


Workplace will continue to help Vodafone bridge the distance between 90,000+ employees over the next 3 years.

While many businesses struggled to find ways to keep their people connected during one of the most disruptive times in recent history, Vodafone already had a secret weapon that helped it thrive in times of extreme uncertainty.

Thanks to the company's 2019 adoption of Workplace, Vodafone maintained a sense of connection and engagement among its global workforce. Not only that, it experienced growth in employee-led initiatives, campaigns and communities, as people rallied together.

Making it easy to connect people

Nurturing what was built during that unprecedented time now remains top of mind for 2021 and beyond, according to Vodafone CTO Johan Wibergh. “More than 90,000 of our employees worldwide use Workplace to keep in touch. With many of them currently working remotely, Workplace has become an invaluable central resource for us to connect with one another, stage live events, share information and collaborate on projects to help our customers. Above all, it is intuitive and accessible so our people can feel part of an inclusive community.

The last 18 months have certainly seen Vodafone make the most out of engagement and community-building features like Workplace Live and Groups. As a result, its global base of employees has been able to hold two-way conversations with leadership while also helping leaders be more transparent when communicating across the entire organization.

Building bridges

This sense of community and connection has had an enormously positive impact on employees staying connected during the pandemic, according to Vodafone’s Social Media and Channels Lead, Patrick Yui.

Thanks to Workplace, a significant number of employees have come to feel closer to one another now more than ever before - despite the physical distance that has kept them apart. For Vodafone, Workplace has been a game-changer during a time when people haven’t been able to meet physically.

We embarked on a series of activities under a banner called ‘Stay Connected with Nick’,” says Yiu of the company’s efforts to keep its people connected. “We have regular sessions and conversations about all areas of the business with our CEO, in conversation with other Vodafone employees and executives.

These interactive sessions also enable employees to comment and ask questions through Workplace. That level of direct access for any global employee is something that Vodafone didn’t capitalize on before.

Inspiring a common purpose

Vodafone also made full use of Workplace to help support employees’ mental health. In addition to live events timed to coincide with Mental Health Awareness week, Workplace was also used to drive participation in pulse surveys that gauged employee sentiment.

The platform helped Vodafone in asking people how they feel about working from home or if they had enough support on mental health and general wellbeing. Survey results were then converted into easy-to-consume graphics and posted on Workplace to give people an authentic feel for what their colleagues were saying and experiencing.

Putting the spotlight on Vodafone’s work with charities and good causes went a long way in boosting morale for the entire organization during the pandemic, too.

Connecting essential services like hospitals and schools is what Vodafone does every day. Vodafone used Workplace to inspire a sense of pride among employees by shedding light on minority voices from the Black Professional Network and LGBTQ+ communities and highlighting its work supporting communities through issues such as domestic violence or relief and assistance for countries experiencing natural disasters.

Adopting a ‘future-ready’ approach

Eighteen months into the pandemic, Vodafone is now looking at a "future-ready" approach to how, where and when people work. And Workplace is set to play an essential role in that strategy - whatever shape it may take. In particular, they plan to continue Live video to broadcast events that can engage employees in a mix of physical and virtual environments. By doing so, people can stay connected wherever they’re working.

Vodafone also wants to use the power of video to create a series of virtual office tours. By recording a series of walkthroughs at various offices and posting them in specific Workplace Groups, employees can experience what it will be like to be back in the work environment after an extended break. What's changed at the reception? What are the new security measures? And people can ask questions and share more details in the comments for everyone to see.

Whatever the future holds, Vodafone's goal remains the same - cultivating a thriving workforce that's informed, engaged and connected across the globe. And we're excited to watch how Workplace can help make that happen.

Julien Codorniou, VP, Workplace said: “Vodafone is a company that lives and breathes its future ready concept. By connecting its employees across the world with Workplace, Vodafone has maintained community during the pandemic while preparing for a new world of work. We are excited to continue powering Vodafone’s community through this renewal.

Tanzania Commercial Bank (TCB) has upgraded its internet banking service to uniquely new heights in the market by fully integrating the digital finance solution with all national payment systems.


Its Chief Executive Officer Sabasaba Moshingi said the revolutionary development is unrivalled in the industry and has been developed internally at no cost.


“The TCB Internet Banking solution was developed in-house at zero cost by our ICT experts and its edge over other online banking services is being fully integrated with all national payment systems,” Mr Moshingi said yesterday at its launch in Dar es Salaam.


“If we had bought its off shelf that would have cost us between US$300,000 and US$500,000,” he noted highlighting its cost effectiveness since those prices translate to about TSh 695.7 million and almost TSh1.16 billion respectively.


According to him, the investment in the new service is part of TCB strategic plan to continue offering quality banking solutions that meet changing market demands. Mr Moshing said the service upgrading move also seeks to enhance the bank’s commercial clout and its competitiveness in the market.


The digital development has impressed government, which said TCB Internet Banking will add a lot of value to national payment systems.


Gracing the inauguration of the fast and affordable online banking service, Treasury Permanent Secretary Emmanuel Tutuba said its convenience and reliability are worth the investment.


Mr Tutuba commended TCB for investing in the highly secure proposition that facilitates local and international transfers as well as easing transactions such as bulk processing of funds as well as government and utility payments.


“I have been impressed to hear that this digital service channel is also connected to the MUSE system in order to simplify payments for government institutions without necessarily having to visit banks,” he noted.


MUSE is the government payment system that is a key aspect of the e-government initiative, which promotes the use of ICT for improving public service delivery.
