I completed my primary education many years back, but did not have enough funds to allow me to proceed. I decided to join the Learn, Earn and Save (U-LEARN II) Project implemented by Swisscontact at a time when I realised I had no skills to facilitate my earning an income. I attended the career guidance and counselling sessions offered by the project and selected the welding sector because I found passion in the work. Between March and May 2018, I trained in welding and was able to secure a 2-month internship at one of the enterprises in Mwanza. This successfully turned into full-term employment. Swisscontact Tanzania equipped me with the necessary skills and for that, I am extremely grateful. I want to one day own my own workshop and give back by training other youths in the same work.
