Aristarick is Co-Founder of Youth For Change (Tanzania), a global youth-led network of young people who are driving positive change in their communities. He is a girls’ rights campaigner and Global Citizen Youth Advocate.

Motivated by the community he grew in, Aristarick believes that he has a big responsibility to ensure every child gets education regardless of their gender or any differences with government and community protecting and supporting them. He says this can be achieved if youths are in front and at the center.

Aristarick currently works as a monitoring and evaluation junior advisor at the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in Tanzania.

He is a Tanzanian, born and raised at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro. He is interested on debates, community work and writing blog posts especially on sustainable development. He also likes soccer and staying by the beach as he is not very good at swimming.
