AfricAid's Tanzanian staff has been busy planning and preparing for this summer's Teaching In Action (TIA) workshop. There is much to organize in bringing together teachers and leaders from across Tanzania for this unqiue and powerful workshop. We look forward to the dialogues and the sharing of ideas and techniques that will unfold this summer!
We also want to share the exciting news that our TIA program will soon be expanding! In the fall AfricAid will be adding a school-based training component to TIA. This means that even more teachers across Tanzania will be trained in student-centered, participatory teaching techniques. And with more highly-trained teachers, even more students will have the tools to become critical thinkers and potential leaders in their communities.
You donation allows AfricAid's programs, like TIA, to continue to grow and expand. We are so thankful for your generosity and support of our work.
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.
Our current scholarship recipients continue to work hard at their studies and move closer to graduation and their dream of becoming teachers. We continue to receive more applications for teacher training scholarships and are hoping to raise more funds in order to fulfill this request and provide more women with the opportunity to receive training.
Teaching is not a highly valued or highly paid profession in Tanzania which makes your donation towards teacher training scholarships that much more impactful. Teachers are changemakers and your generosity and support enables these young women to become influential and inspiring leaders in their communities. Thank you for your donation towards this project.
