- “You really get a sense of the complete size and scope of the program and the number of kids touched by YOSSO in Dar es Salaam. The other piece that really hit me was the number of kids YOSSO has come back day, after day. It’s a real testament to the quality and impact of the program.” - YOSSO Youth Development Coordinator Elizabeth Tungaraza, after seeing another 15 YOSSO youth graduate from the Peer leadership program and more than 300 youth attending the event.
- “It was amazing to see what the participants had to say about one another. Their coaches, gave (the youth) high remarks for learning the core values and utilizing them on and off the centre.” – Guest of honour and Chairperson Parent Committee Manzese ward Herman Kott on seeing 15 youth graduate from Peer Leadership program.
- “Through YOSSO, I’ve learned a lot of respect for other people’s situations, and I’ve learned to be an important part of the community. I know a lot of people don’t have the amazing opportunities that I get. YOSSO has given me many of those opportunities, so now I’m ready to start giving back and helping out.” — Participant Winnfrida John, 14, who graduated from Peer Leadership program and plans to return to YOSSO as a volunteer for after school YOSSO programs.
- “It’s been great this season to see the Peer Leadership program successful continue at YOSSO Ukombozi centre and we’ve been able to do it with some great volunteerism and private donation. Now we’re looking forward to the expansion of the program to reach as many youth at Dar es Salam city and other region in Tanzania and beyond.” – YOSSO Executive Director and Founder Prosper Mambo.
