Yaya (Nanny) Workshops

A yaya is a common job for many women in Tanzania.  Most of these women have had no formal training, many haven’t even finished school.  As the employee of working parents, yaya’s are the carer for the children for many hours of the day, where their behaviour and attitude leave an impact on the lives of the children they care for, something that is often taken for granted. We run workshops for nannies, which provide the women with knowledge, skills and inspiration for the work that they do. These hands on workshops cover child development, basic first aid, games, skills and ideas for them to work with the children they care for (and their own children) empowering the women to love what they do and understand the impact and importance of their jobs and the role they play.
