About Us

Founded in 2010, YES! Tanzania is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) registration number SC041604.

Our mission is to support organisations in the most disadvantaged urban communities of Tanzania to transform young people's lives through sport.

We believe that if sport is delivered using a positive youth development approach it can help to build the competencies, skills and assets of vulnerable young people so they have the resilience they need to grow and flourish throughout life.

Our values and principles:

We believe in the ability of sport to empower young people to fulfil their potential in life

We believe that all young people should have the opportunity to participate in sport regardless of gender, ability or religion.

We believe that support should be targeted at those who are most in need

We believe in a youth centred approach and that young people are listened to when identifying their needs.

We believe that building the capacity of leaders and organisations is the key to sustainable development

We value partnerships that are based on openness, honesty and transparency.
