Opportunity Knocks!

One of the biggest challenges that young women face in Tanzania is the lack of opportunity to attend university.  Our University Scholarship Program is geared towards girls who graduate from our Kisa Program, AfricAid's leadership development program for secondary school scholars.  AfricAid offers eight competivite scholarships for girls to attend university or vocational training colleges.  This year, eight young women have been identified. The girls graduate in May and will start university or vocational training after their Leadership Immersion Experience in July 2014.  Upon graduating from the Kisa Program, the girls join the Kisa Alumni Association which connects them to a network of accomplished Kisa leaders who are using their leadership skills to change their communities.  University graduates can apply to join the Kisa Program as mentors and the cycle of empowering and developing new leaders continues.

Final Report

To Our Donors--

While AfricAid continues to believe that the establishment of a new Montessori learning center is an important and worthy endeavor, we have determined that the complexities associated with establishing a new school in Tanzania are significant, and require considerable additional time and analysis in order to deal with them. As a result, AfricAid has decided to put the project on hold for the meantime, pending further reseach by AfricAid representatives into the requirements associated with opening and certifying a school, and an in-depth, on-site analysis of the feasibility of the project itself. We are thus proposing to deactivate this project from GlobalGiving.

Your support of the project has been much appreciated, and will help enable AfricAid to undertake needed research and analysis. AfricAid still hopes to be able to reactivate the project at some future date.

Thank you.
