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)

Elizabeth Abshire

Executive Director
