Project Update

AID Tanzania continues to provide support in various ways, including tuition fees, school uniforms, shoes, books to primary and secondary school girls in the Arusha rural community in Tanzania.

It is no secret that in Tanzania, nearly half (47%) of primary school aged girls are not attending school. Between 2004 and 2010, even though pregnancy among Tanzanian girls aged 15 to 19 years fell by about 12%, still, more than 40% of young women begin having children by age 18, and the country has one of the highest adolescent pregnancy rates in the world. (UNICEF) Girls in urban areas of Tanzania were eight times more likely to finish secondary education than girls in rural areas. In this light, AID-TZ is determined to change this by helping to create an education infrastructure needed to make a meaningful difference in the lives of girls across the country. 

In the past three months, we distributed books and other school supplies to 20 primary and 10 secondary school girls. This was made possible through funds raised via the GlobalGiving platform and local partners. 

We're grateful to our partners and friends who donated their hard-earned cash towards this project. Thank you so much! Please be rest assured that through your generous support, you're positively impacting the lives of young girls in Arusha, Tanzania. Thank you!

Project Update

In Sierra Leone, the poverty profile affirms that young people, between the ages of 15 and 35 are among the poorest of the poor. Many of them are illiterate, school dropouts, unemployed and idle, living in deplorable conditions in and around the Freetown community.

AID Sierra Leone continues to support poor and unemployed youths who are victims of many unfortunate circumstances, the very awkward situation in which these youths find themselves need urgent attention, most certainly if given an opportunity by offering them special training for jobs and some skills to enable them become self-reliant.

In addition to existing resources, we have been able to use the funds raised through the Global Giving platform to provide skills training for 12 youths in Freetown.

We are so grateful to our partners and friends who donated their hardearned cash towards this project through the GlobalGiving platform. Your precious donations contributed greatly in helping young people in Sierra Leone rise above extreme poverty and also be able to secure much needed intrepreneurship skills.

As Sierra Leone continues to be ranked as one of the poorest countries in the world, our organization has been supporting poor and less-privileged women in the country by offering them much needed skills to enable them create jobs for themselves thereby becoming self-reliant.

Our sensitization programs in relation to women's empowerment, discrimination and abuse continue to positively impact the lives of women in the country.

We're grateful to our partners and friends who donated their hardearned cash towards this project through the GlobalGiving platform. Together, we're changing the lives of poor and disadvantaged women in Sierra Leone.
