September Teacher Training Update

Scholarship recipients

Hello AfricAid supporters,

Thank you so very much for your very generous support of our program to provide teacher training to girls in Tanzania.  We're thrilled to report we now have 12 active scholarships, thanks to you.

Tanzania is not an easy place for a woman to be successful.  Embedded cultural beliefs and norms, lack of resources, and a rigid national examination process all conspire so that only 5% of girls graduate from secondary school and even fewer go to for any further education or training.  With your help we can help Tanzanian girls learn to teach and uplift the next generation of life-long learners in Tanzania.

Asante sana,

Dear AfricAid supporters,

Thank you for your generous support to build computer labs in schools in northern Tanzania. We are currently in the process of installing computer labs in our newest 4 partner schools and it is all thanks to your contributions! 

These schools will not only be home to a computer lab but will also host our Kisa Program, a program where secondary school girls learn vital life and entrepreneurial skills through weekly mentorship. The students in the Kisa programs as well as all the students in the school will benefit greatly from this new technology as it will teach them skills they will need to get jobs and improve the quality of their lives. Providing the students with these opportunities would not be possible without your support.

Thank you for your support.

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

First let me say THANK YOU! We're thrilled that you've chosen to support our school lunch program which continues to provide the critical need for a nutritious lunch to students at Losinoni Primary School. These children, many who walk many miles to and from this rural school, need food to to help them concentrate and stay healthy throughout the day. And since we started the school lunch program at Losinoni School, attendance increased 30% and graduation rates increased 20%.

Do you know that $25 feeds 950+ children a nutritious lunch for a day?  

Because of your generous support, we are able to keep up with the growing demand for lunches and have been able to provide 200 more lunches to the students each day.

Thank you for helping.
