The NBC Citizenship approach has evolved over a number of years from a charitable agenda to a more sustainable approach that considers the broader impact NBC can have on society. We base our approach on three pillars:
We help them grow from students to working adults
As the bank for the working nation, we strive to equip the youth with skills and development they need to secure formal employment or self-employment, while also giving selected students access to tertiary education.
Wajibika is an employability programme that helps young people in Tanzania build the skills they need to make the critical transition from education to work. It is aimed at empowering young people with the training and development they need to enhance their employment or self-employment prospects.
Wajibika addresses a critical gap in a young person’s life in the transition from education to work. Closing this gap will not only ensure a successful transition to employment but also higher productivity for the business.
Wajibika is delivered online via a portal available on the NBC website, and also through face-to-face coaching through training sessions and workshops presented occasionally by NBC at different universities and secondary schools in Dar es Salaam.
As an incentive, NBC will provide a few lucky students who are first to complete the Wajibika Programme, an opportunity to be mentored by young people with successful careers and also secure an internship opportunity at one of the successful organisations or companies in Tanzania.

We help business men and women thrive
The NBC B-Club is aimed at nurturing SMEs through training and mentorship on entrepreneurship, money skills and people skills, while at the same time addressing different challenges they face as business men and women in the country.
Through the NBC B-Club, the SMEs will also have an opportunity to gain exposure to different areas on business countrywide and worldwide, through strategic partnership with TANTRADE, TRA and TIC.
We are behind financial growth for all
Our goal is to improve our banking models and introduce inclusive banking models that will provide or simplify access to financial services.
