About YFC Tanzania
Youth for Christ Tanzania was officially registered in 1987. James Broun Mwambagi played a great role in pioneering YFC Tanzania under the help of YFC Kenya who was directly involved in the pioneering process and provided all the required support.
Our programs before COVID-19 included the following: evangelism and discipleship, school outreaches, Worth the Wait abstinence program, leadership development and training, life skills (challenges facing modern youth), prison visits, sports ministry, music and dance ministry, evangelism to street children, prayer, and many more. The uniqueness of our ministry is how we connect with young people and disciple them through local churches.
Because of COVID-19 some of our ministry programs have changed to online and digital platforms. The ministry programs above involved more face-to-face, but under COVID restrictions we reach out to young people through WhatsApp, Zoom, Facebook and YouTube.
Our vision after COVID-19 is to establish social media Evangelism. We have observed this has great impact on the young generation. In the picture the man on the left is Zaburi Obadiaah, our YFC Tanzania National Coordinator, and some of our key staff.
