Supply of 400 Smartphones for the Project on Empowering Adolescent Girls and Young Women through Education in Tanzania

UNESCO Dar es Salaam is one of the agencies implementing the Joint Programme on “Empowering Adolescent Girls and Young Women through Education in Tanzania”. One of the project’s component seeks to provide ICT–based second-chance literacy and numeracy education programmes targeting out of school adolescent girls and young women.

Having completed the ICT based training and skills development training and given the difficulties that out-of-school girls and young women face with regards to access to information and markets, 400 out-of-school girls and young women will be provided with smartphones for increased digital literacy to improve access to market and communication skills (1 smart phone per beneficiary and 100 from each of the target districts). This will also be linked to the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) information platform that is being established; in order to reduce unwanted pregnancies and Gender Based Violence.

In this regard, we are looking looking for a registered and reputable company dealing in smartphones to supply 400 smartphones.
