September Teacher Training Update

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,
