ABOUT TYDS

The Tanzania Youth Digital Summit is an annual event and a platform to empower the next generation of digital champions by exposing them to opportunities for upscaling their digital skills as well as opportunities for jobs and income generation in the digital economy.

About 1 million youth enter the Tanzanian job market annually this kind of competition calls for innovation and outside the box thinking if the graduates and students in the ICT sector are to succeed in Tanzania and the world. The summit is a critical yet timely solution towards shaping the ICT students and young professionals.

During the summit ICT stakeholders, partners and business leaders will engage the youth in intense sessions to open their eyes to the endless opportunities that come with the 4th industrial revolution.

This year ’s key topics include Innovation Cycle and Innovation Ecosystem Support, Cybersecurity, Programming/Coding/Codification, Fourth Industrial Revolution and Skills of the Future, Fin-tech, Online learning for Skills Development, Online Jobs and Freelancing.

TYDS is a brainchild of the youth-led organization DOT Tanzania in collaboration with the Tanzanian ICT Commission under Ministry of Works, Transport and Communications. It is currently supported by the Embassy of Ireland in Tanzania.
