Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

First let me say THANK YOU! We're thrilled that you've chosen to support our school lunch program which continues to provide the critical need for a nutritious lunch to students at Losinoni Primary School. These children, many who walk many miles to and from this rural school, need food to to help them concentrate and stay healthy throughout the day. And since we started the school lunch program at Losinoni School, attendance increased 30% and graduation rates increased 20%.

Do you know that $25 feeds 950+ children a nutritious lunch for a day?  

Because of your generous support, we are able to keep up with the growing demand for lunches and have been able to provide 200 more lunches to the students each day.

Thank you for helping.

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

Thank you so much for your support to help supply texbooks to classrooms in Tanzania.  We set a goal of reaching $6,000 and with the help of 126 generous donors like yourselves we only have $825 left to go!  Once we have raised this money, we can deliver text books to Tanzanian students that allow them to improve their lives and their community.  Books are such a fundamental part of education that they are often taken for granted in the U.S.  Books are vitally needed in Tanzania where students and schools often cannot afford them.

Thanks to your generous support, children throughout Tanzania will receive books to enhance their educations. An educated child will continue to improve his/her community, creating a positive impact on the entire country.  

We're so grateful for you! Asante sana!

July Kisa Update!

Hello dear AfricAid Kisa Program Supporters,

We are thrilled to announce that our largest class ever of the Kisa Program, 120 students, has officially started their Kisa classes!! We are excited to have so many incredible young women participate in the Kisa Program this year as well as to partner with four new secondary schools. 

All of these girls will receive weekly training and mentoring in life skills, computers, leadership, and entrepreneurism.  We will help to ensure they finish high school and have the tools to succeed when they graduate. We're thrilled about the early success and rapid growth of the program.

Asante sana! Thank you again for your generous support. You are giving young girls in Africa the gift of a brighter, more prosperous, and self-directed future. 

Elizabeth Abshire
