BRAC Safe Spaces & Loans for Girls in Tanzania

Aug 8, 2011

BRAC's Girl Effect keeps growing!

The Girl Effect is growing and going strong in Tanzania!  With support from you, the Nike Foundation, and UNICEF, we now have a total of 180 ELA clubs in Tanzania with more than 6,500 girl members!

Here's the progress on the 20 clubs you've helped to fund:

  • 830 members and 20 mentors (one for each club)
  • All 830 members are now taking a life skills training course
  • 175 girls provided with livelihood training
  • 244 girls have formed microfinance clubs and taken out more than $37,000 in loans to help start and grow their business initiatives

Thanks for your continued support. It means the world - and the future - to these girls!
