2012 Recap

The Kisa project launched in spring of 2010 with 23 girls. We had high hopes for this first class of Kisa scholars, hopes of the places they would go and the great things they would do after completing secondary school. In February, these Kisa scholars completed the Kisa program and graduated from secondary school! After graduation these Kisa graduates were asked to educate other young women in their communities, a unique opportunity to extend what they learned in the Kisa program.

And now our Kisa graduates are moving onto great careers. Chummy is working on her bachelor degree in economics and finance, she hopes to be an economist. Another Kisa graduate, Dorcas, has been accepted to the University of Dodoma to study engineering and computer science. 17 of our 23 original Kisa scholars plan to attend University now that they have graduated from secondary school! This is an extraordinary statistic in a country where 95% of girls don't finish secondary school. 

We are so proud of our Kisa graduates. And we are so excited to see what opportunities our next class of Kisa scholars will experience as they graduate secondary school this winter and begin to pursue further education and careers. We know that there are many amazing things in store for the futures of these bright, dedicated, and ambitious young women. We can't wait to see what 2013 will bring for our Kisa graduates!!

Dear AfricAid supporters,

Thank you for your generous support of our program to enable Tanzanian girls to attend secondary school via scholarships. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and we wish you and your family a wonderful holiday!

Secondary school attendance and matriculation is a problem for girls in Tanzania as only 5% of girls now graduate from secondary school (the equivalent of high school in the U.S.)  This prevents the girls from having choices and living rich, rewarding lives and holds the quality of living down across the country. 

Your investment in girls' education in Tanzania gives these bright, determined young women a chance to be independent and become leaders, showing other young Tanzanian girls what is possible.

We're half way to our goal and know we will get there in 2013.  Asante sana! (thank you),

Elizabeth

Dear AfricAid supporters,

I'm writing to thank you for your very generous support of our teacher training program in Tanzania.  We are thankful for your generosity and wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season!

Our teacher training program, TIA, is an annual program that brings teachers from all over Tanzania together to share, learn, and become better, more effective teachers. They learn how to best manage large classrooms with varied class levels and how to use commonly available natural items as teaching aids. 

Supporting teacher training is a great investment as it develops and supports teachers, while helping thousands of young children to receive a better education.  I can't think of a better gift to give this time of the year.

Asante sana (thank you),

Elizabeth
