Project Update

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

Funds raised through the GlobalGiving platform helped us provide additional books and other school supplies for 20 primary school girls. It is still clear that 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 is determined to change this by helping to create an education infrastructure needed to make a meaningful difference in the lives of girls in the country.

We say a big thank you to our partners and friends who donated their hard-earned cash towards this project. 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

AID Sierra Leone provided additional support to fifty (50) mudslide and flood victims and survivors who went through our Entrepreneurship Training program.

The entrepreneurship training program was provided to people from the most affected communities, including Culvert, Dwarzark, Kamayama, Kanikay, Kaningo and Regent. The training program provided support in the areas of business plan development, market information management as well as general business and financial management capacity building. The intervention consisted of the implementation of a fully comprehensive business development and knowledge transfer training which will lead to the establishment of small or medium enterprises (SMEs) as a means of providing livelihood incomes to the survivors.

AID Sierra Leone continues to monitor and coach the 600 affected individuals who benifited from the small grants which was equivalent to US$ 100 each to re-establish micro and small enterprises, such as local convenience stores, mobile credit re-sellers, food stalls and small green enterprise start-ups, to support the re-establishment of local economic activities.

80% of women were targeted for this support and 20% men. We want to use this opportunity to thank our partners and friends who donated their hard-earned cash towards this project, especially GlobalGiving and UNDP Sierra Leone. Please be rest assured that through your generous support, you're positively impacting lives and giving hope to the hopeless.
