    1.0 2007 OVERVIEW

    It is a high time to be seated for our Annual General Meeting, the strength of TYVA today is due to the foundation it has to date. It is a 7th Annual General Meeting meaning TYVA has been live for years now. Despite the challenges we have passed through out, TYVA will always stand firm as we see it today.

    In guidance of exploring and explicitly seeking an insight into the core challenges facing the youth generation particularly in our country as TYVA requires. Need of effectively utilization of every resource we have mainly human resource can’t be escaped. Every member in the organization should keep on having the sense of belonging. Since by doing so TYVA will really be ours and for Tanzanian youth who will live in the mission and vision of our organization.

    Currently TYVA has grown not only in terms of age but also membership wise. I can proudly say that even the branches we have one after the other has been strengthened and active talking of branches such as Moshi, Dodoma and Zanzibar which actively have started to operate despite the challenges they face. The effort to awake these branches is from members and Executive Committee. This shows that if we keep united and work as a team TYVA will even grow more than what we know of it today. As a writer Rick Warren said “We become what we are committed to”.

    Membership being expanding need to be maintained by improved, committed management and leadership. Effective management and committed leadership will easy the act of utilizing every opportunity that comes along as it will develop the skills of the members hence having a pool of skillful human resource.

    TYVA need to utilize the resource it has, every year a certain number of people get trained in different aspects through TYVA .Thanks to my Executive Committee which trough thinking realized the need of school of TYVA which does the work of capacity building for more and more members who needed the chance to get trained in various aspects. The school of TYVA which is doing well currently and planning to have activities after training in order to ensure trainees don’t waste the knowledge they got and a way of giving back to TYVA.

    Being grateful to TYVA for this year ,honored to be part of it, I am forced to say our partnership because is growing we need not to be blind but rather looking forward for other partners as the issues affecting youth are growing endomancly this calls for need of partners.

    It is very important to realize the achievement of our organization today is the effort of everyone with sense of belonging. Our partners Fur Die Freihert have been more than partners rather are friends to us, am very thankful to them as they have been supportive in many tasks that we share goals.

    Being firm to members of our organization, you have been a great support and part of achievement of the today TYVA; your togetherness has made the work of Executive Committee to be easy.

    I am grateful for the Executive team of this year because it is for their tolerance, team work and commitment are the results of where TYVA is today. In a special thanks to the office of Secretary General who actively played a special role as his office requires.

    It is a call for every one of us to realize the truth in the statement “we become what we are committed to” and knows that as much you do for TYVA is as much it pays you back. We should also remember TYVA is ours and so let us make it live for our good and for the future generation.

    God Bless TYVA, God Bless Tanzanian Youth!

    Elizabeth Riziki

    Preface and Acknowledgement
    Basic youth needs are still far from being fully enjoyed. To ably satisfy those needs different forces much more than the existence of keen youth potential joint efforts to encounter the challenges under recognized umbrella like organizations. With this understanding, ours is a role of making a difference.

    TYVA still offers a platform for joint ventures to the youth towards their struggle against the acquiring of participation and involvement via youth activism.

    It is my happiness to have a platform presenting the over all Annual Report for the operational year 2008 on this 7TH Annual General Meeting. This is so vital exercise that provides opportunity to communicate to whole organizational members, Government, Partners, NGOs and the Public in General as an element of maturity in accountability, good governance and democracy among non governmental organization.

    Much as we have worked very hard, with our own power alone things at last couldn’t have moved smoothly. As it is said “in unite we stand”, I wish to convey my sincere gratitude to Daniel Welwel, John Mnyika, Baruani Mshare, Alex Mayunga, Elly Mgumba to mention the few former leaders who couldn’t seize supporting our cause by provision of advices in crucial moments and quick acting in a number of our activities required highly skills from experienced personnel.

    I was much moved by the warm working relationship we had and continue to have with our partner FNst who can’t leave behind in the TYVA success we cherish today for the whole 2008 operational year. I am so grateful to your support.

    I can't forget my fellow members of the Executive Committee and entire organization: it is with you all the doings obtain its healthy blessings. It’s a point of no return to accomplish our journey towards our vision as guided by Martin Luther King’s words “If a man hasn’t discovered something will die for, and then he is free to live”!

    Aluta Continua!

    Michael J. Dalali
    Outgoing Secretary General

    1.0 2008 Overview

    In the year 2008, TYVA focused much in accomplishing the conduction of some identified issues and areas under the strategic plan 2003-2008 and the 2008 Action Plan. We dealt mainly with areas in;
    • Carry out advocacy on youth areas
    • Carry out Organizational Development
    • Civic Awareness
    • Building Capacity to our members

    TYVA's 2008 operational plan focused on these issues in line with the needs of the time and our Strategic Plan. The revival and sustainability of the organizational was vividly seen in the course of this year when compared with that of the year 2006. TYVA has recorded an increase in number of new youth activists’ in board.

    TYVA involvement in some new coalition and working with new partners brought much impact towards the fulfilling the vision and mission of our organization. Increasing potential opportunities for partnership and joint initiatives provide TYVA with a bright future.

    Yet it is in order to report that TYVA faces huge changes of its time: one for financial deficit and under resourced activities, but two, and more seriously from the passivity and lack of commitment of TYVA national leaders in fulfilling their required tasks as per the organization’s Constitution due to their other commitments.

    TYVA Day
    On 29th July, 2007 TYVA marked 8 years of its existence since its establishment. The anniversary was marked at Makumbusho Village. The event wasn’t successful much due to facing a big challenge of member’s participation. This was a critical moment of assessing our devotion and commitment in the organization which we own its vision.

    Regardless the challenges of members’ turn-up, the event attended by the founder members other former leaders who some happen to attend physically and others phoned and talked to the members (John Mnyika).

    The event was well managed, involved the entertainment part by artist who played live thus Vitalis Maembe (famous by song SUMU YA TEJA). That impacted big message to most of newly members who took part in the event.

    The event was poorly attended by member of organization. However, the few who turn-up marked the celebration and contemplated the prospective of TYVA.

    3.0 Achievements

    TYVA has been working hard to build capacity of its member in the whole year 2008 by searching and link opportunities of training, workshops, conferences. With this believes creates exposure and acquisition of skills that we highly demand them for our organizational progress.

    TYVA continued attracting more young people joining the organization and pursuing implementation of our vision and the cause we believe towards the success of our country. This initiative goes further by the process of revival and consolidation of the branches. The spreading of the vision impacts the generation to generation along the country.

    In the year 2008, TYVA tried much to stabilize its brand through acting as mouth piece advocating the youth interest towards decision makers. This has much been dealt under holding of press conferences and release of our statements in critical issues affecting the needs of youth such as Higher Learning education policy controversial.

    TYVA collaborated with good identified partners who assisted much pushing our plans and programs with their support. Friedrich Nauman Stiftung, Foundation for Civil Society, British Council to list the few.

    TYVA maintained royalty with having good governmental relationship by engagement and invitation to our programs. This is as vital as government being among crucial actors towards decision making and implementation of youth agenda.

    4.0 Challenges
    Still TYVA faces ineffective utilization of the few trained members possesses. Few do engage and utilize well their skills towards the well-being of organization that attribute to its minimum performance.

    Lack of many long lasting projects has been a constrain in operational of organization due to very narrow contribution of write ups in projects design with which leads to minimum utilization of member, lack of funds and high donor dependency.

    The lack informed members regarding organizations’ about leads to minimum engagement and attachment. This goes hand in hand with little being done in documentation area of our organization.

    Falling down of members morale and their attachment to the organization undermine the good designed action and strategic plans, vision and objective organization has towards youth activism.

    Lack of investment in researches, analysis and studies carried down by our members in youth interest issues attribute our minimum advocate impact and sounding to the welfare of the youth as a lobbying and advocacy youth based organization. This can be also the attribute factor towards minimum project write-ups.

    5.0 Way Forward
    Much as organization achieved identified the challenges faced in the year 2008 triggers the strategic operational in the year 2009 by focusing on;
     Effective utilization of members’ potential and skills.
     Conduction of Civic Awareness programs.
     Increase advocacy activities for Youth related issues.
     Conduction of researches, analysis and study upon youth related issues.

    TYVA should focus on the implementation of the next phase program of stabilization of the branches. This will much require our member engagement hand in hand with the Executive Committee in executing structured programs.

    Still there are a lot of opportunities TYVA can grab and make fully utilization of them. It's high time now to open up eyes and mind and work for interest of organization.

    TYVA members and leaders should increase an assist each other in their service to the organization in any position they are with passion and volunteering spirit. Furthermore, must invest their time carrying our analytical studies, conduction of desk researches in number of issues which will attribute towards the achievement of our vision.
