Tanzania girls become community teachers

In Tanzania, almost half of students enrolled in primary school do not graduate. Many children in primary studies are first generation students. They have a hard time adjusting to school from the very beginning, and quickly fall behind.

Members of BRAC Tanzania's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents program (ELA) for girls are helping young children get a better chance at staying in school. 

For three hours in the morning, thirty of BRAC Tanzania’s clubs for girls are transformed into pre-primary classrooms for 900 young children in the regions of Dar Es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa and Dodoma. The teachers are all ELA club members -- mentors who have already graduated secondary school -- who have received training from BRAC on early childhood education. They engage the young children in classes and games that build emotional, social and cognitive skills.

Thanks to your support, the girls can use their safe spaces to mentor the next generation of children in their communities.
