Youth In Tanzania
Adolescence and youth is a period of great opportunity and hope. It is the period between childhood and
adulthood when young people undergo major physical, emotional, and social development, with significant
impact on their sexual and reproductive health as well as their quality of life. Their decisions, behaviours,
skills, and knowledge have a major impact on their future development. Consequently, one of the most
important commitments a country can make for its future economic, social, and political progress, as well as
stability, is to invest in the growth and development needs of young people.
