Computer Labs Now Open

This summer AfricAid expanded the Kisa Project, a project that trains girls in leadership, entreprenuership, and life-skills training during their last two years of secondary school, to Moshi, Tanzania. With this expansion came 4 new partner schools with each school receiving an updated computer lab for Kisa Scholars and other students attending the secondary school to have access to internet and computer technology. As of August 2014, these four computer labs have all been updated and added onto. Now Kisa Scholars can communicate to their US sponsors and students can learn Microsoft Software, typing skills, and have access to research the World Wide Web for class assignments. Empowering students with a computer lab has been a focus of AfricAid because we have found that the more students who have access to these techonologies, the more likely they will be fully equipped for University or a job in the future.

We want to give our donors a special thanks for making this happen!

120 New Graduates!

Rebecca

The 2013-2014 school year was a great success with 120, the total amount of year-two Kisa Scholars, graduating from the two-year leadership program! Even better, all 120 girls passed the national exams and are going to university to pursue their dreams. This is outstanding for a country in which less than 1% of women have any education past secondary school. Our Kisa girls are resilient, confident young women who are determined to get a higher education and pursue a worth-while career.

" I really give a word of thanks to AfricAId for having found this organization which aims in strengthening the women in our society. I am proud and I appreciate the Kisa Project because I believe I am going to be a very courageous girl and a good leader. The world is always waiting for just a single person who can be able to stand for all the people and for the girls of Tanzania. Through AfricAid we will be abel to stand on our own feet to live a good life full of courage. Thank you!"

120 Girls Preparing for University

AfricAid provides university scholarships for girls who graduate from the Kisa Project, a two-year leadership, life-skills, and entrepreneurship training for high school girls in Tanzania. Scholarships are provided to Kisa Scholars who not only graduate from Kisa but also pass the national exam to graduate from secondary school. This year 100% of scholars graduated in a country of which only 5% of girls graduate secondary. Even better, 100% of the young women are preparing to attend university and because of supporters like you, the girls who need financial assistance to pay for tuition will receive a scholarship! We need your continued support to increase our scholarships and assist more amazing young women leaders to pursue their higher education and dreams.
