Tamasha: Young people checking if governments and services works for them

Though young people aged 10-29 years constitute a large portion of the population in East Africa, their perspective is often absent in mainstream discourse. In 2010 Twaweza supported the youth focused organization Tamasha to undertake in depth monitoring in 32 communities in 8 districts in Tanzania. In each community one male-one female pair of young people were involved in monitoring actual service delivery and treatment of youth over a minimum period of one week, including through the use of ‘dummy patient’ technique. Issues covered education and other sectors. Both quantitative and qualitative information (‘stories’) were collected, and both audio-recordings and photographs were made. The field work was completed in 2010 and the results analyzed and the main report, popular briefs and exhibition launched in 2011.
