UVIKIUTA is an independent non-governmental organization that works with youth. It was created in 1983 following a proposal in which the Government of Tanzania invited unemployed youth to group together in order to receive assistance. Uvikiuta's projects focus on income generation, employment, and nutrition.
United Planet Tanzania (UPTZ) became a partner of ICYE in 2009. As a local, Tanzania-based non-profit organization, UPTZ is dedicated to bridging the cultural gap between Tanzania and other countries. Through volunteer, community-based assistance, cultural exchange visits, and homestays with local families, greater cross-cultural understanding and long-lasting impact within communities is fostered.
