Beds and Blankets for Vulnerable Tanzanian Girls



Your donations will provide dormitory furniture for 30 students at the Sega Girls School, serving Tanzanian girls who are otherwise unable to attend school due to extreme poverty.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

We provide on-campus accommodation for the Sega students, which allows us to reach out to disadvantaged girls from the poorest areas of Tanzania, and to give our vulnerable students a safe space to learn and develop. With the help of a USAID grant, we will soon be constructing a dormitory to house the next group of 30 students who will join the Sega Girls School in 2013, but the grant does not cover furniture - we need to supply dormitory furniture so that the girls have somewhere to sleep.

How will this project solve this problem?

Provision of beds, bedding and cabinets for the newly constructed dormitory means that thirty new students can join the Sega Girls School, bringing the total number of students at the school to 180. These girls will benefit from a quality secondary education, and will be able to concentrate on studying, rather than having to work to raise money for food. They will be able to grow up in a secure environment, and develop into independent, free-thinking adults who can contribute to their community.

Potential Long Term Impact

The Sega Girls School will serve 200 disadvantaged Tanzanian girls by 2015, giving each girl both an academic education and training in life skills and entrepreneurship so that she will be empowered to break free of poverty and make changes in her own life, family and community.
