Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

We're thrilled to have your support to help girls who wish to receive teacher training in Tanzania.  Many teachers in Tanzania receive very little training and the profession is not highly regarded.  Girls who are interested in the profession receive little support, yet they will have a huge impact on the next generation of Tanzanians and the country's ability to start pulling itself out of poverty.  By supporting teacher training scholarships, you are exponentially impacting numerous children with a better quality education.

We're so grateful for your support and generosity.  Asante sana!  (thank you)

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

We're very grateful to have your support to help supply secondary school scholarships for girls in Tanzania.  This is so critically needed as only about 5% of girls in Tanzania graduate from secondary school and just one year of secondary school boosts girls' eventual wages by 20%.

As we move forward into 2012, we're securing partnerships with more and more secondary schools in the Arusha area and will have 4 new schools signed-up by the end of March.   This will enable us to reach even more girls with scholarship assistance.

We're so grateful for your support.  Asante sana!  (thank you)

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

Happy 2012 to you!  Thank you so much for your generous support of AfricAid and our Kisa Program in Tanzania to uplift young African women out of poverty through education. 

Your support means a great deal to us.  We have big plans for the Kisa Program in 2012.  We are welcoming 120 new scholars in April, which is our biggest class ever!  Also, our first Kisa class graduates in February and we're very proud of their accomplishments to date and can't wait to watch as they move on to university and rewarding careers.

You have made all of this possible.  We're truly grateful and wish you all the best in 2012.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Abshire
