Project Update

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

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. Funds raised through the GlobalGiving platform helped us provide additional books and other school supplies for 30 primary school girls.

It is still clear that nearly half (47%) of primary school aged girls are not attending school. 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

The organization continues to provide monitoring and coaching support to the 600 mudslide and flood affected individuals who benefited from small grants which was equivalent to US$ 100 (SLLE 850,000) 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.

Also, the organization facilitated the opening of bank accounts for all the 600 beneficiaries in an effort to help increase their financial management as well as establishing linkages for ease of access to loan facilities.

The intervention consisted of the implementation of a fully comprehensive business development and knowledge transfer training which lead to the establishment of small or medium enterprises (SMEs) as a means of providing livelihood incomes to the survivors.

AID Sierra Leone is grateful to 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.

Creating the education infrastructure needed to make a meaningful difference in the lives of young girls in Africa requires a multi prong approach with efforts lasting years, if not decades.

It is against this backdrop that AID Tanzania continues to provide support in the form of tuition fees, school uniforms, shoes, books to both primary and secondary school going girls in the Arusha rural community.

Funds raised through the GlobalGiving platform have been used to 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.

Our organization 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.

We continue to thank 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. Ahsante Sana!
