Darecha Limited is a unique youth-led organization that develops, connects, and supports those individuals who, through effective and sustainable business ventures contribute to making poverty history. Darecha Limited was founded in December, 2008 by Julius James Shirima with the belief that entrepreneurship is the key to transforming the African economy.

We believe that in order to effectively deal with poverty and any other economic hardship we need to develop a thriving private sector thus we embrace the idea that entrepreneurs regardless of their background, financial capacity or education level are the drivers of any strong economy. We therefore seek to equip young, aspiring entrepreneurs with skills, knowledge and guidance to help realize your ideas.

Through our programs, Darecha addresses the problem of youth unemployment and poverty by filling the gap left by the formal education system in Tanzania where about 90% of the 1,000,000 youth from primary, secondary and tertiary learning institutions entering the job market annually do not get employed in the formal sector due to lack the knowledge, skills and hands-on experience. The current education system does not prepare students to tackle real life problems. Furthermore, elite schools that may offer some kind of skills building are generally unaffordable to majority of the population.


To be the largest national, premier organization that provides youth with resources in order to grow and formalize their entrepreneurial ventures and professional careers.


To support and connect young entrepreneurs in Tanzania.
