June 2012 Update

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)

Elizabeth Abshire

Executive Director
