The Karimjee Jivanjee Foundation (KJF) and Toyota Tanzania Ltd (TTL) as part of its commitment to CSR have donated $25,000 as Gold Sponsors of the first ever Young Scientists Tanzania (YST) project to promote science and technology amongst young Tanzanians.

During the two day event held at the Diamond Jubilee Hall, Dar es Salaam on October 24-25, Toyota Tanzania created an inspiring and interactive display area featuring the high tech and ‘green’ Hybrid Prius as well as a technical display tent with training models and circuit boards to illustrate how a vehicle works. Our display area was an instant hit, attracting hundreds of young, inquisitive and curious minds, all eager to learn from the Toyota team and interact with the cars. At the final Awards Ceremony, Chairman of the Karimjee family group, Hatim A. Karimjee, presented the much-coveted ‘Technology’ category award.

The YST project has made huge steps in raising the profile of science and technology in Tanzanian schools and encouraging young, innovative Tanzanian students to tackle and solve real issues through scientific and practical methods. As a result of the project hundreds of young people now believe in their capacity to push for change through science.

In January 2013, Aisha Nduku, Monica Shinina and Nengai Moses from Kibosho Girls Secondary School in Kilimanjaro will represent their school and their country at the BT Young Scientists and Technology Exhibition in Dublin, Ireland, and show the world what the youth of Tanzania has to offer. They, and all the students who participated in the Young Scientists Tanzania, demonstrated tenacity, forward thinking, and above all an infectious enthusiasm that is testament to their belief that science is not only rewarding but also lots of fun.
