Diaspora Constitution Petition- FUNDING

$9,505 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 147 people in 55 months






Pursuant to our call for the right of dual citizenship for all Tanzanians, the Tanzanian Communities in the United States of America and the Diaspora Council of Tanzanians in America (DICOTA) have agreed to file a petition for this cause to the Constitutional Review Parliament that is now taking place in Dodoma, Tanzania through our Representative Honorable Kadari Singo, who is also a member of the our Diaspora Community and who resides in California. With the highest honor, we invite you to support this petition.

Honorable Kadari Singo is now attending the Constitutional Review Parliament in Dodoma. After consultation with other members of the Parliament and in seeking their support, and after thorough deliberations on how to bring the issue of dual citizenship to the attention of all members of the above-mentioned Parliament, it was decided that a workshop, training or conference should be arranged to lobby to the members of the Parliament and inform them of the necessity and urgency of their supportive votes when the motion of dual citizenship will be tabled.

For that conference, we will need experts on this issue from other parts of Tanzania and abroad (including International Office for Migration - IOM) to attend at a very short notice. We will also need an excellent venue and some refreshments. Moreover, the experts on this issue will need to be paid. Hence, we are looking for at least $25,000 dollars to cover expenses for this event. The plan is to run a workshop/seminar for 3 days targeting different groups of MPs for each day.

We are certain that if the members of the parliament are made to understand our motion, it will be easier for them to vote for dual citizenship. Dual citizenship is an important right that has been denied to Tanzanians since 1964. Thus, we hope that the workshop or conference will provide the members of the Parliament with an opportunity to understand the overall benefits of dual citizenship and why their votes for this cause are imperative. Moreover, we invite you to think about your interests, family and opportunities offered by dual citizenship.

For these reasons, we ask you to support this cause by giving any donations .

The funds obtained will be used to arrange the above-mentioned workshop or conference in Dodoma, Tanzania. We need at least $ 25,000 so you may contribute any amount you can afford. If every Tanzanian in the United States contributes at least $50, we will reach or surpass the amount of $ 25,000.

The high level breakdown of the cost is as follows:
Workshop/seminar Facilitator's Fees 
Venue/Hotel costs
Training Materials
Lunch and refreshments
Media coverage and publicity

We are grateful that you are supporting dual citizenship for Tanzanians outside their country and we hope through your support, we will be able to achieve this goal.

TANZANIAN DIASPORA had a chance to meet their President for the first time here in the UK . Duo-Citizenship was the top of the agenda among those that attended the event. The President challenged those who keep on criticising the government and asked the Tanzanians living in the diaspora to be vigorous in addressing and pushing the matters that affect them.

Katika karne iliyopita, wasomi mbali mbali wakiwepo wanauchumi, pamoja na wataalamu wa maswala ya kijamii waligundua umuhimu wa rasilimali watu katika kukua kwa uchumi wa dunia. Kuwepo kwa elimu bora, na ujuzi katika nafsi ya binadamu huwasaidia watu kujitengenezea vipato vikubwa. Tanzania inahitaji idadi kubwa ya rasilimali watu ili iweze kupiga hatua kubwa za kiuchumi.
Kuwepo kwa mali asili kama madini, mafuta na gesi asilia kwa kiwango kikubwa imekuwa laana kwa mataifa kwani yamekuwa vyanzo vya unyanyasaji wa kijamii na umasikini uliopitiliza kwa jamii zisizokuwa na rasilimali watu ya kutosha ili kuzisimamia na kuziendeleza.
Baada ya vita vya pili vya dunia, Ujerumani ilikuwa katika wakati mgumu wa kujinyanyua kiuchumi. Miundombinu mingi iliharibiwa kipindi cha vita. Na Ili kujinyanyua kutoka katika uharibufu mkubwa uliosabishwa na vita, serikali ya Ujerumani ilibuni mfumo wa elimu ambayo ilielekeza juhudi zake katika kutayarisha rasilimali watu.
Elimu ilipewa kipaumbele; Ilifanywa kuwa ya bure na ya lazima kwa kila mjerumani. Mfumo huu wa elimu ulifanywa kuwa wa vitendo zaidi na lazima kwa kila mtoto mwenye umri wa miaka tano hadi kumi na tisa, huku kila mwanafunzi akipewa nafasi kuchagua cha kujifunza kutokana na uwezo wake lengo kubwa ikiwa ni kutayarisha rasilimali watu
Jitihada hizi za serikali ya Ujerumani ilizaa matunda makubwa ambayo yaliitwa miujiza ya kiuchumi. Leo, uchumi wa Ujerumani ndio uchumi mkubwa zaidi katika bara la Ulaya, na pia ndio mdhamini mkubwa wa mataifa taabani kiuchumi kama Ugiriki, Hispania nk. Ujerumani ni moja ya mataifa yaliyo juu zaidi kwenye maswala ya uhandisi inaongoza kwa uhandisi. Ujerumani inaongoza kwa uzalishaji wa viwanda ikiuza nje ya nchi bidhaa yenye thamani ya dola za kimarekani trillion 1.52 kwa mwaka 2012 tu. Haya ni mafanikio yaliyotokana na kuipa elimu kipaumbele, pamoja na matumizi ya rasilimali watu zilizoko ndani na nje ya nchi

Mataifa yasiyokuwa na mali asili nayo yameonyesha ubunifu wa hali ya juu. Israel kwa mfano, ni taifa dogo lenye rasilimali chache, huku ikizungukwa na maadui ambao lengo lao kubwa ni kuliangamiza. Ikiwa imezingirwa na maadui kila kona pamoja na kukosa rasilimali za asili, Israel imelazimika kutumia rasilimali watu ili isiangamizwe kijeshi na kiuchumi.
Licha ya kujitengenezea baadhi ya taasisi bora za kielimu na utafiti duniani, Israel iligeukia wataalamu wenye asili ya kiyahudi waliotapakaa katika kila pembe ya dunia, ikiwapa uraia watu wote wanaotaka kurudi nchini humo. Leo Israel ndio moja ya nchi iliyoendelea zaidi kiteknolojia. Vyuo vikuu vya Israel vimezalisha wataalamu wa kila aina ambao wanasaidia nchi hiyo kujiendeleza kiuchumi na kujilinda kijeshi
Baada yakugundua kwamba hatma yake haikuwa nzuri kiuchumi na kijamii, Singapore, nchi ndogo barani Asia ilianzisha mapinduzi ya miundombinu , viwanda, mawasiliano, na ya kielimu ili iweze kustahimili mabadiliko ya kiuchumi ya baadae. Leo, Singapore ni nchi ya nne duniani kwenye maswala ya kifedha na mmoja wa magwiji katika masoko yanayochipukia. Korea kusini nayo haina tofauti na Singapore, kwani ilikuwa masikini zaidi ya Kenya mwaka 1960. Leo hii Korea ya Kusini ina uchumi wenye thamani ya dola za kimarekani trillion 1.56 ambayo ni mara 47 ya Kenya. Hii yote imetokana na jitihada zake za kuzalisha rasilimali watu
Marekani imekuwa ni taifa lenye nguvu zaidi ya nchi yoyote ile duniani kiuchumi, kiteknolojia na kijeshi. Kwa kipindi kirefu sasa. Mapinduzi ya viwanda ya karne ya 19 iliisukuma nchi hiyo kutumia kila mbinu ; Marekani ilitumia rasilimali zake zote ikiwemo rasilimali watu. Mafanikio ya taifa hili kubwa duniani hayakuwa ya kubahatisha, yametokana na kufanya kazi kwa bidii bila kukata tamaa, na pia kujivunia kile wanachokifanya.
Wamarekani wamewekeza kwenye elimu kwa kiwango kikubwa. Wameanzisha vyuo vikuu vya elimu na utafiti bora kuliko zote duniani. Sera zao za uhamiaji zimekuwa kivutio kwa wataalamu bora kutoka kila pembe ya dunia ili tu watu wenye vipaji waendelee kusadia taifa hili kuendelea kuongoza kiuchumi. Hazina kubwa ya Tanzania imetapakaa ulimwenguni. Wataalamu mbali mbali wenye asili ya kitanzania wametapaa kila pembe ya dunia wakitafuta maisha huku wakichangia maendeleo ya mataifa mengine kutokana na kukosa uhuru wa kuchangia nchi yao ya kuzaliwa.
Wataalamu wenye asili ya Kitanzania wapo katika taasisi kubwa za kitafiti nchini marekani na mataifa mengine makubwa; wapo kwenye mashirika makubwa ya kifedha, wapo kwenye taasisi kubwa za afya nk. Mifano ni mingi ambayo siwezi kuielezea yote kwa leo, ila lengo langu ni kuielemisha jamii yetu kuhusiana na umuhimu wa watanzania waishio ughaibuni
Ushindani mkubwa wa kiuchumi katika eneo la maziwa makuu ni msukumo tosha kwa Tanzania kutumia kila mbinu inayoweza kuwa mstari wa mbele tukizingatia kwamba, Tanzania ni moja ya nchi chache barani Afrika yenye utajiri mkubwa; kwani imebarikiwa na kila aina ya rasilimali muhimu ambazo zingesaidia kuharakisha maendeleo yake. Ugunduzi wa gesi asilia na mafuta, madini pamoja na mbuga zake za wanyama ni rasilimali adimu na muhimu kulikwamua taifa kutoka katika wimbi la umasikini.
Kinachohitajika ni rasilimali watu; Kinachohitajika ni wataalamu wenye asili ya kitanzania waliopo ndani na nje ya nchi kushirikiana ili kuleta maendeleo ya haraka. Lazima watu wote wenye asili ya Kitanzania wapewe haki yao ya kikatiba pamoja na nafasi ya kushiriki kulijenga taifa, kijamii, kiuchumui na kisiasa
Kamwe Tanzania haiwezi na haitaweza kuendelea ikitegemea wageni. Watakaoleta maendeleo na mabadiliko makubwa ni watanzania wenyewe. Mipaka ya dunia imefunguka katika hii karne ya ishirni na moja. Badala ya kukumbatia misaada inayotudhalilisha na wageni wanaoiba rasilimali zetu, tutumie hazina kubwa tuliyonayo ya rasilimali watu, ili tuweze kujikwamua kutoka katika wimbi la umasikini.
Wataalamu wa kitanzania waliotapakaa duniani, wanastahili haki ya kurudi kwenye ardhi yao ya kuzaliwa bila vikwazo vya aina yoyote. Katika kuandaa katiba mpya ya Tanzania, tusifanye kosa la kuwafungia nje ndugu zetu walio ughaibuni kwa kuwa na vibali vya kuishi na kusafiri. Ikumbukwe kwamba, pamoja na kuwa na vibali hivyo, bado asili zao na mioyo yao itabaki Tanzania. Tusiruhusu historia ituhukumu hasa katika kipindi hiki ambapo ushindani wa maendeleo ya kiuchumi unazidi kuongezeka duniani
Mungu Ibariki Tanzania
