February marked the end of another school year for our Tanzanian students. This month students are on a much deserved vacation and will return to classes in April to continue their studies.
Through your continued generosity, AfricAid is currently supporting 10 girls' secondary school educations through scholarships. We look ahead with much anticipation to the graduation of our scholarship students. In a country where only 5% of girls graduate from secondary school, graduation will be an incredible feat that will certainly be celebrated!
Thank you again for your support of this project and the opportunities that your generosity has created in the lives of these young women.
Dear AfricAid supporters,
Thank you for your generous support of our program to enable Tanzanian girls to attend secondary school via scholarships. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and we wish you and your family a wonderful holiday!
Secondary school attendance and matriculation is a problem for girls in Tanzania as only 5% of girls now graduate from secondary school (the equivalent of high school in the U.S.) This prevents the girls from having choices and living rich, rewarding lives and holds the quality of living down across the country.
Your investment in girls' education in Tanzania gives these bright, determined young women a chance to be independent and become leaders, showing other young Tanzanian girls what is possible.
We're half way to our goal and know we will get there in 2013. Asante sana! (thank you),
Hello AfricAid supporter,
Thank you so much for your support of our program to provide secondary school scholarship to girls in Tanzania. Tanzania has one of the lowest secondary school graduation rates for girls in the world at 5%. We want to change that. With your help, we are now providing secondary school full scholarships to 15 girls and partial scholarships to over 100 girls. Educated girls become educated women who powerfully transform their lives and their communities, helping to uplift the next generation of girls.
Asante sana for your generosity,
Hello Friends of AfricAid,
Thank you for your support and generosity to help supply secondary school scholarships for girls in Tanzania. Education is the one of the most valuable gifts you can give to a girl in Tanzania. When a girl is educated, she is 3 times less likely to contract HIV/AIDS. When a girl is educated, she marries later and has few and healthier children. An extra year of secondary school boosts her eventual wages by 20-25%.
But the reality is only 5% of girls in Tanzania graduate from secondary school.
Your donations are creating opportunities for more girls to continue on in their education and giving them a chance to create a brighter future for themselves!
Asante sana! (thank you)
Hello dear AfricAid supporters,
We're very grateful to have your support to help supply secondary school scholarships for girls in Tanzania. This is so critically needed as only about 5% of girls in Tanzania graduate from secondary school and just one year of secondary school boosts girls' eventual wages by 20%.
As we move forward into 2012, we're securing partnerships with more and more secondary schools in the Arusha area and will have 4 new schools signed-up by the end of March. This will enable us to reach even more girls with scholarship assistance.
We're so grateful for your support. Asante sana! (thank you)
