The Imarika Project is dedicated to empowering young street vendors in the Temeke district of Dar es Salaam, with plans for expansion to other regions. Specifically targeting the Machinga youth aged 15-35 in these districts, the project has already trained and built the capacity of approximately 50 individuals in sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and economic strengthening.

The project focuses on equipping street vendors, known as "Machinga," with essential skills such as SRHR, leadership, life skills, and financial literacy. The overarching goal is to empower adolescents and young people (15-35) to make informed decisions regarding their sexual health and mental well-being, enabling them to reach their full potential.

Additionally, the project aims to create a favorable business environment for youth-led small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to access markets and expand their economic activities. By integrating sexual and reproductive health into their initiatives, the project seeks to enhance the livelihoods of these young entrepreneurs.

To achieve these objectives, the Imarika Project will establish partnerships and work closely with regional and district authorities and Tanzanian small and medium enterprises (SMEs). These collaborations will provide valuable insights and establish connections for young SMEs in their districts.
