Teachers are one of the most influential factors in ensuring high-quality education in a school. AfricAid is passionate not just about providing ways for girls to have educational opportunities but for their experience in school to one of high quality. We have a vision of classrooms full of girls learning, growing and reaching their potential. And for this dream to become reality, we need trained and qualified teachers teaching in those classrooms.
We are so thankful for all of your support and generosity towards this project. Your donations to our Teacher Training Scholarships project are so powerful. Imagine what can happen when highly trained teachers fill the classrooms of Tanzanian, the impact will change the educational landscape of Tanzania.
Happy summer to all our of supporters,
In 2009 the percentage of girls that progressed from primary to secondary school in Tanzania was only 37% (The World Bank).
There are many factors that prevent or greatly hinder girls from advancing in their education. Cultural attitudes and traditions surrounding gender along with financial expenses are two significant obstacles that girls in Tanzania face in their pursuit of education.
With your support and financial contributions, we can change the landscape of education in Tanzania. We can provide solutions to some of these obstacles and create opportunties for these girls to attend school, and continue attending school.
We are so appreciative of your generosity and hope that you will continue to partner with us in opening doors to education for girls who desperately want and need education to transform their futures.
Hello AfricAid supporters!
While many of you are getting ready for the end of the school year and summer break to begin, our Kisa scholars have just finished their break and have returned to school for another year. Many of our scholars returned to their home communities during break to spend time with their families. Now refreshed, these students are ready to return to classes and begin their final year of secondary school and of the Kisa project!
We are excited to watch our scholars finish out their last year of secondary school and begin to set their sights on what's next. With a diploma in hand, there are so many opportunities for these bright and hard-working young women. Who will strive to become an accountant, a nurse, a lawyer, a teacher??
While we don't know what each young woman's path holds, we do know that they will each continue to be leaders and change-makers where ever they go!
Thank you for your support of the Kisa Project and for creating opportunities for brighter futures for young women in Tanzania.
Executive Director, AfricAid
