Mama Bonnie Walters Youth Entrepreneurship Training Program for Mwanza
The program aims to facilitate hands-on entrepreneurship learning and discovery. It is designed so that trainers
and students embark on a journey together, where trainers facilitate the development of business ideas, practical
application of concepts and tools, and ultimately, the realization of a small business. It is best to implement the
training program over several weeks in order to develop knowledge at an even pace while exploiting the benefits
of learning through hands-on application. However, it can also be taught in a condensed form during an
abbreviated period as well.
The program consists of a series of lessons promoting not only basic business skills development but also the life
skills necessary to succeed as an entrepreneur in Tanzania. The training program mixes hands-on, community-

based activities with a traditional training session format. The following list introduces the contents of each
