Project Update

AID has been providing tuition fees, school uniforms, shoes, books to primary and secondary school girls in the Arusha rural community in Tanzania. Funds raised through the Global Giving platform helped us provide additional books and other school supplies for 20 of these girls. 

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.

It is against this backdrop that we're focusing on supporting the less-privileged girls, especially those in rural areas as they face the greatest challenge in acquiring any form of education.

We are so grateful 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

The organization has been supporting poor and less-privileged women in Sierra Leone by offering them much needed skills to enable them create jobs for themselves thereby becoming self-reliant.

Sierra Leone continues to be ranked as one of the poorest countries in the world, according to the UN Human Development Index. Within this frame of generalized poverty, women come worse off and have been found to be poorer than men. This is due to gender disparities existing with respect to access to and control of a range of assets including direct productive assets such as land and macro credit, human capital assets including education and health, etc.

From the funds raised through the GlobalGiving platform, the organization provided skills training programs for 15 rural community women in the Newton rural community. Our sensitization programs in relation to women's empowerment, discrimination and abuse continue to positively impact the lives of women in the country.

We continue to thank our partners and friends who donated their hard earned cash towards this project. Together, we're making a difference in the lives of poor and less-privileged women in the country.
