Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

Happy fall to you! I hope this update finds you well and enjoying the change of seasons.

I want to thank you for your support to build computer labs in at schools in Arusha, Tanzania.  AfricAid installed 4 computer labs at 4 schools in 2012 giving computer access and training to 2,000+ Tanzanian children.  Even in Tanzania, computer skills are necessary to get a job and most homes and schools do not have computers available.  By bringing computers and computer training to these children, they have the chance at a more rewarding future.

Asante sana for your support!

Kisa Program September Update

Dear AfricAid Kisa supporters,

Asante sana for supporting our Kisa scholars in their quest for a solid education and a better life.  We're very appreciative and grateful.

The Kisa Program is strong and growing.  131 new girls entered Kisa in May/June and they are already taking in valuable lessons and bonding with their mentors and one another.  We're planning a Career Day on October 20 which will bring all our Kisa scholars across Tanzania together to hear from powerful Tanzanian female role-models and allow our scholars to explore career options they may have only dreamed of.

Kisa is designed to be a life-changing program that equips young Tanzanian girls for success through educational and entrepreneurial training and network-building.  Your support allows Tanzanian girls to control their own lives and create their own futures. 

Thank you.

September Secondary School Scholarship Update

Hello AfricAid supporter,

Thank you so much for your support of our program to provide secondary school scholarship to girls in Tanzania.  Tanzania has one of the lowest secondary school graduation rates for girls in the world at 5%.  We want to change that.  With your help, we are now providing secondary school full scholarships to 15 girls and partial scholarships to over 100 girls.  Educated girls become educated women who powerfully transform their lives and their communities, helping to uplift the next generation of girls.

Asante sana for your generosity,

Elizabeth
