December Update

Meet Husna, a soon to be graduate of secondary school in Tanzania. Husna wants to become a teacher at a secondary level of education. She believes in the impact education has on children and enjoys interacting with young people.  Husna says that becoming a teacher would be a dream come true. 

With graduation coming soon, our students are eager to attend teacher training classes to be the next leaders in education in their communities. Having gone through school in overcrowded classrooms with under qualified teachers who cannot give each student the time he or she deserves, these young women are determined to change the education system by becoming competent, passionate teachers in Tanzania. By supporting girls to become teachers you are not only helping one young woman but also her family, students and community. Monique Villa, CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, says, "Seventy per cent of a woman's salary goes back into her family. If you want to tackle poverty, you help girls become women, get educated and employed."
