Dijito Na Mimi
The number of options, such as online enterprises, freelancing, content production, digital marketing, etc., has significantly expanded thanks to digital platforms. Someone with a broad variety of digital skills is needed to fully explore this potential.
Due to the accessibility of digital options and the high unemployment rate, LP Digital has made it a priority to ensure that Tanzanian women and youth take full advantage of these chances. The limited-series Dijito Na Mimi was created with the intention of educating women and young people about the benefits of using digital media for entertainment.
The six episodes of the Dijito na Mimi limited series each have a different theme, such as digital skills, content creation, digital safety, digital marketing, or freelancing.
