Programs

Kisa Program: Kisa means "story" in Swahili. Through the Kisa Project, young African women gain the knowledge, tools and resources they need to become the creative authors of their own futures. In addition to access to a school scholarship fund, these young women are trained as Kisa Scholars through a two-year curriculum led by local Tanzanian women, which prepares them to become leaders and mentors in their communities and uplift the next generation of young, Tanzanian girls. Feed 750 Children School Lunch in Tanzania: The Losinoni School Lunch Program will provide the 750 students of the Northern Tanzania Losinoni Primary School with a nutritious meal every day. Supply Textbooks for 10 Classrooms in Tanzania: AfricAid's Textbooks for Tanzanians helps provide funding for the purchase of much-needed textbooks for thousands of kids in Tanzanian classrooms. Build Computer Labs for Students in Tanzania: AfricAid's Computer Labs for Girls project will help provide computers for schools participating in AfricAid's new Kisa Project, a scholarship and leadership training program for young Tanzanian women. Teacher Training Scholarships for Tanzanian Girls: This program will provide an opportunity for a young Tanzanian woman to attend teacher training college. This will transform her life -- and the lives of thousands of other students -- forever. Secondary School Scholarships for Tanzanian Girls: Provide an opportunity for a young Tanzanian woman to attend secondary school, and transform her life -- and the future of her family and community -- forever. High-Quality Education for 10,000+ Tanzanian Kids: The Teaching in Action (TIA) teacher training program trains teachers annually in active teaching methods, improving the educational and professional futures of thousands of Tanzanian students.
