TDT’s Local Representative in Kigoma, Benedict Hosea, has caused quite a stir during his visit to  the UK!

TDT’s parent Briatain-Tanzania Society invited Benedicto to come and address the recent AGM.  This was undoubtedly the high point of the afternoon, as Benedicto held the audience spellbound, explaining the work of his NGO Mboni Ya Vijana (“Eyes of the Youth”).

It is greatly to Benedicto’s credit that, having earned his degree in Environmental Planning and Management, he has remained loyal to his local roots, and applied his knowledge and passion in seeking to fight poverty in his home village of Zeze.

Please take a little time to enjoy this webinar of Benedicto’s talk:

Benedicto has attended a number of other meetings and forums during his visit.  These include addressing the All Party Parliamentary Group in the House of Commons on “Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship in Tanzania”, and at The Geology for Global Development 6th Annual Conference, on “Water and Sustainable Development”.

You can also read about Benedicto’s visit on the Mboni Ya Vijana blog.

Below are some images of Benedicto’s visit, including his visit to the Houses of Parliament, meeting Jeremy Lefroy MP, at the BTS AGM, with Geology for Global Development conference organiser Joel Gill, and meeting Tanzania’s UK High Commissioner Asha-Rose Migiro. Benedicto is one of a network of TDT Local Representatives – all volunteers – in the poorer regions of Tanzania on which TDT concentrates.  TDT is greatly indebted to its volunteers.  They all show great commitment and dedication, and are our ‘eyes and ears’ on the ground.
