TUI Futureshapers Zanzibar

In Zanzibar, job creation is critical and social entrepreneurship can play a key role in creating meaningful and sustainable jobs for the younger population.

In 2022, two young Zanzibaris were selected to undergo a nine-month training programme with the Social Innovation Academy (SINA) in Uganda. Now, they are back in their home country to implement their own chapter of this organisation, empower local young people and turn them into active drivers of their own future through a formal learning environment.

TUI Futureshapers Zanzibar is working with two young leaders to create a new social innovation academy, named the Hazina Innovation Academy.

Together with its also newly founded sister-institution in Cape Verde, Hazina provides personal development and purpose-discovery training and life coaching to 100 young entrepreneurs.

The project fosters personal and professional transformation in participants, equipping them with the skills to run social or environmental enterprises. It encourages the creation of self-organised social enterprises, which continue to operate and create impact after the project ends. Communities become financially self-sufficient within the first three years of implementation, ensuring the sustainability of the project's outcomes. In total, the project is generating 22 new jobs.


SINA helps young people to reach their full potential and create their own sustainable solutions and enterprises around the world.
