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.
