Summary

An African proverb says, "If we educate a boy, we educate one person. If we educate a girl, we educate a family - and a whole nation." Thanks to education of girls, the community as a whole can benefit from a strengthened socio-economic position of its female population and from local development. The project intention is to give a chance to girls who are living far away from the school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Apart from the abject poverty affecting the general population of the country, this particular area of Kishuro, is populated by people whose origins are refugee. The area is geographically marginalized and need a school for local development. Educated girls are the key for development but most of them are living far away from school. Due to remoteness and poverty families can't send their daughters at school. The money raised will allow the girls to go to school.

How will this project solve this problem?

The name of the project is Jipe Moyo means "Take Heart" or "Have Courage". "Go to Them" Jipe Moyo Project consists in an effort ideally and literally "to go" to the marginalized, the forgotten, the voiceless, the poor people. The aim with girl's education is to raise the standard of living of this refugee population, giving them a new hope and a future. Through education, the girls, which will then become women, will be empowered to attain their own social and economic independence.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project is fully locally based because it aims at helping local populations to transform their lives from stagnation to a thriving community. This means the project intends to participate in a conscious effort to integrate and to mold a community which is sensitive to the environmental and to human rights issues. The project will use local resources of construction to benefit the local population through employment. This project encourages girls to be part of local development.
