Project Update

AID Sierra Leone continues to provide monitoring and coaching support to the 600 mudslide and flood 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.

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 entrepreneurship training program conducted for victims and survivors from the most affected communities were provided with 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 lead to the establishment of small or medium enterprises (SMEs) as a means of providing livelihood incomes to the survivors.

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.

Project Update

Even though pregnancy among Tanzanian girls aged 15 to 19 years fell by about 12% in recent yeras, there's 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.

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

The organizatin continues to provide support in the form of 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 have been used to 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.

In this light, AID Tanzania 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 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!
