Girls getting loans and starting businesses

The girls are doing great!  It's clear that safe spaces for girls are in high demand in Tanzania.

In addition to providing the older girls club members with livelihood training in activities like agriculture, poultry rearing, tailoring, food processing and beautification, we've helped the girls set up their own village organizations so that they can take out loans from BRAC's special revolving loan fund for adolescent girls. Here's an update of our progress so far:

  • all 20 clubs have 20 mentors and a total of 814 members
  • more than $16,000 in loans has been disbursed to 163 girls
  • 140 girls have received livelihood training

We're still developing materials for the life skills training program that we can distribute to the clubs and train the mentors to teach, so please keep your support coming, and spread the word about the importance of investing in girls.

Thanks again for all your support!

Best regards,

Michelle
