1:1    Background information and introduction
ZARA Charity is a non-governmental organization founded by ZAINAB ANSELL and ROGER ANSELL established since 15/06/2009 under non-governmental organization act 2002 section 12(2) of act no. 24, the organization aims at supporting vulnerable groups in the community. Zara Charity plays a vital role to enhance community economic development especially by supporting vulnerable groups in the community, such as orphans, the Masai women group and poor people, such as porters who climb Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru through various community projects as follows:

  • Mount Kilimanjaro porters society
  • Kilimanjaro orphanage centre
  • Masai women group
  • Ngorongoro marathon project

2:0 Statement of the problem:

The Masai women group is the project that aims at supporting Masai women so as to liberate them from their traditional belief which is based on oppression, exploitation and elimination of women within their society. Our challenge will be to employ them, to educate them on their roles, rights and responsibilities as women from family level, community level as well as national level, because we know that women play a vital role to enhance community economic development in any community.
Zara Charity has operated different projects, including entrepreneurship skills and financial management to help those women. Through implementation we have discovered that there is a remaining group of girls aged from 15 to 30 whereby most of them after completing the primary or secondary education, fail to proceed and due to that they find themselves useless in the community labor force. This risk leads us to the idea of presenting a project in which we will construct a vocational training in helping those women. In creating a centre which will offer a safe environment, vocational training in tourism, hotel management,  arts and crafts and community development,  we believe that we will give them hope  and sustainable   employment  opportunities. Our expectation is to start by recruiting 50 students in each course and make a total number of 200 students. We hope that by reducing 200 unemployed girls each year after a few years to come we will have a Masai community which is skilled and employed for livelihood sustainability and hence increase per capital income and reduce poverty and dependence ratio. “Many of the girls we met during our visits to their locality were looking for a way out, but have no other choice.”                  

This proposal aims at rising the necessary funding to construct and increase the ongoing Zara Charity programmed, to purpose built premises from where we will be able to assist more girls by offering additional skills though training. This new centre will make a durable change to the lives of many women who are trapped by present circumstances and will be a sustainable long-term project.
The estimated cost for construction and fitting out of the new Training Centre is 410,000$.

3:0 Project goal:

  • To construct a training centre that will train and employ Masai women and girls in tourism, catering skills, community development and education projects for their livelihood sustainability.
  • To train and equip volunteers, schools and churches on how to duplicate the Zara Charity program in other locations

3:1 Project purpose: To build and manage masai women vocational training center    
in Karatu.
3:2 Project Outputs

    • Zara Charity involvement in the Tanzania millennium development goals of 1025.
    • Promotion of the private sector collaboration with the government to eradicate extremely poverty.
    • To emphasize  visitors and local a culture of throw in to the development of their own

 

3:3 Output indicators

It is envisioned that there will be a positive increase and progression in:-

  • The number of masai women who are educated will increase.
  • Increasing trained staffs for the growing community and  tourism industry
  • Creation of Employment Opportunity
  • Prevention of  girls entering commercial sex and early marriages
  • Local community sustainability
  •    Duplication of zara charity training program is globally where there is a need.

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

In this context Zara Charity would like to improve self-employment opportunities for young women. The project selected the Grant Scheme, which will facilitate the creation of a training center in the locality of Karatu in Arusha Tanzania. The  Center for women and girls is a $410,000-dollar project that will target 200 young and disadvantaged women from the age of 15 to 30, out of the poorest communities in Arusha, particularly Karatu, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. These participants will comply with the following characteristics: (i) low qualified in primary and secondary education, (ii) lacking business opportunities, (iii) having a small business worth less than 15,700 Tsh (approximately US$10), and (iii) lacking access to credit/start-up loans.

The project will provide a comprehensive package of services that includes the following components: 

  • in-classroom skills training,
  • on-the-job training, and 
  • an exit strategy.     

Given the Center’s space capacity, training services will be delivered on a semester basis, group 1 will initiate training on July 2013 and end up on June 2014.

The grantee organization is zara charity which is under Zara International Travel agency in Tanzania (www.zaratours.com www.zaracharity.com ), which will receive US$410,000 from the Grant Scheme to support the implementation of the project.

ZARA Charity is also supporting the Karatu Masai women group in designing several dresses that have strong influences of the Massai colors and jewelry, but they have been adjusted to a modern feminine style. The collection is interesting and possible to wear for females of all ethnicities. The dresses are being sold at High view Hotel Karatu and Spring Land Hotel Moshi. Of course, the benefits from the sale of these dresses will solely be used for the set-up of the educational training centre for Masai women. These organizations will provide training services on specific trades and will support marketing and commercialization of products manufactured and produced by trainees.
