Update of BRAC’s Program for Adolescent Girls in Tanzania
By Michelle Chaplin - Project Manager
Thank you to all of our donors for your gracious support of BRAC’s program to provide safe spaces and loans to teenage girls in Tanzania. With your help we have made measurable progress towards reaching our goal. Here’s an update of our progress so far:
• We’ve surveyed and held discussions with teenage girls and their mothers to select the best meeting times, activities and training programs for the girls. BRAC staff members will continue to hold meetings with mothers to stay informed about the girls’ progress in school and at home.
• We’ve developed training materials, recruited and trained 10 adolescent club mentors. All of the mentors are female.
• We’ve opened 4 adolescent clubs where 100 girls can safely gather and discuss issues that are important to them with each other and with their mentors.
• Financial and livelihood training programs will begin in later this year, after which the girls will be able to take out small loans to start their own businesses.
With your support we will continue to build adolescent clubs, sign on and train mentors, and recruit members to participate in the clubs.
