Dr. Moshi M.Kimizi(PhD)
Acting Executive Secretary

On behalf of the UNESCO National Commission of the United Republic of Tanzania I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to view the Commissions’ website. UNESCO was established in order to promote international understanding and culture of peace among the International Community through education, science, social science, culture, communication and information.

The UNESCO National Commission was founded in 1962 to implement UNESCO programmes in the country in order to realize UNESCO goals and promote its ideals. Tanzania as a developing country is still grappling with several developmental challenges. It has developed its development strategy; vision 2025 and poverty reduction strategies for both mainland and Zanzibar that guide all social and economic development plans.

    World poverty could be cut in half if all adults completed secondary education.

    A new UNESCO policy paper shows that the global poverty rate could be more than halved if all adults completed secondary school. Yet, new data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) show persistently high out-of-school rates in many countries, making it likely that completion levels in education will remain well below that target for generations to come.
