Summer Update

The school year is quickly coming to a close! Eight young women are about to graduate secondary school and will start university or vocational training after their Leadership Immersion Experience in July 2014. These young women are Kisa graduates. AfricAid's Kisa Project mentors girls in the areas of leadership, life-skills, and entreprenuership. These graduates then mentor a group of 10-15 young secondary school girls during Leadership Immersion to pass along the skills they received during the two year Kisa Project training.  Upon graduating from the Kisa Project, the girls join the Kisa Alumni Association which connects them to a network of accomplished Kisa leaders who are using their leadership skills to change their communities.  Once the young women graduate from university, they can apply to be Kisa Project mentors or become involved in AfricAid's business incubator. With so little job opportunities in Tanzania, university graduates often have a difficult time securing a decent job after graduating. Our business incubator trains and connects girls to jobs in the social enterprise sector. We provide young women with university scholarships to give them the opportunity to succeed and through our Kisa Alumni and business incubator programs, AfricAid makes sure each young woman is provided with enough resources and training to be a powerful woman leader in Tanzania.
