June 2012 Update

Hello Friends of AfricAid. 

Thank you for your support and generosity by supporting teacher training in Tanzania. Your donations create opportunities that previously may have been unavailable to these girls pursuing a dream of teaching. Their training and education in the teaching field in invaluable. These future teachers will be change makers in their communities and they will be the ones to help uplift the next generation of leaders across Tanzania. Your donation no matter how small has an exponentially big impact. 

Asante sana!  (thank you)

June 2012 Update

Hello Friends of AfricAid, 

Thank you for your support and generosity to help supply secondary school scholarships for girls in Tanzania. Education is the one of the most valuable gifts you can give to a girl in Tanzania. When a girl is educated, she is 3 times less likely to contract HIV/AIDS. When a girl is educated, she marries later and has few and healthier children. An extra year of secondary school boosts her eventual wages by 20-25%. 

But the reality is only 5% of girls in Tanzania graduate from secondary school. 

Your donations are creating opportunities for more girls to continue on in their education and giving them a chance to create a brighter future for themselves!  

Asante sana!  (thank you)

Hello dear AfricAid Kisa Program Supporters,

First, asante sana!  Thank you very much for your wonderful support of our Kisa Program.  We're so touched and grateful.  You are giving young girls in Africa the gift of a brighter, more prosperous, and self-directed future. 

The Kisa Program is thriving.  Late in April, we will welcome our largest class ever into the Kisa Program, 120.  All of these girls will receive weekly training and mentoring in life skills, computers, leadership, and entrepreneurism.  We will help to ensure they finish high school and have the tools to succeed when they graduate.  We're thrilled about the early success and rapid growth of the program.

Thank you again for your generous support.

Elizabeth Abshire
