Welcome to Get Real Training


Who Are We?

They say a picture speaks a thousand words; we say a film speaks many more. Get Real Training (GRT) is a vibrant, growing organisation born in Dar es Salaam that is working towards enhancing and expanding the Tanzanian visual media landscape through a number of non-profit activities. We believe that visual media is a powerful tool for social change, not only for the literate members of society, but also, crucially, for illiterate members. In Tanzania, the latter represents about 35% of the population. Our unique approach is to fuse East African culture with modern media formats. 

What Do We Do?

Let’s take the example of Salim, a young Tanzanian from an underprivileged background with a talent for visual media and a huge desire to learn. How does someone like him go about finding the means to get the training that will lead to a job that can support him and, in turn, his family? GRT offered him training and supported him through an internship, which now means he has a great job in a leading Tanzanian production company and are now able to support his family and are also helping his sister through school. This is just one example from several activities that we are engaged in. You will find information on all our activities here on the website and recent activities on our Get Real Training Facebook page and Filamu Club Facebook Page. Karibuni sana!
