As the world is rapidly changing, Tanzania is changing with it. These changes occurring all over the world give birth to different gaps in different sectors and they affect our communities in various ways. Gaps can be in different kinds in our communities, for instance, educational gap, employment gap, technology gap, talent gap, economic gap, gender gap, knowledge gap, health gap, development gap, and many more.
It is with a keen eye; we have spotted a group of people who have taken the initiative to address these gaps. Yet most of these individuals don't get a chance to share their experiences, ideas, and perspectives that have positively impacted Tanzania and the world taking initiatives.
Our vision in this year's event is that addressing these gaps will bring the gaps and those who took initiatives to address them into the spotlight so as to raise awareness, aspire and inspire communities to join forces to address the gaps to create a better and sustainable community for today and tomorrow.
