Ending child marriage in Tanzania and achieving universal secondary completion for girls could reduce fertility rates nationally by more than one-fourth, thereby contributing to reducing population growth and improving standards of living through a higher gross domestic product per capita.
Education has no substitute, one is either educated or not. As an advocacy and development-oriented organization, the Advocacy Initiative for Development’s commitment and work around education and its related issues remain a priority. As a very vital component of a nation’s sustainable growth, we believe it must be embraced by all.
It is against this background that we continue to provide support to both primary and secondary school children, especially the Girl Child from low-income families.
With funds raised on the GlobalGiving platform during the current report circle, the organization was able to provide additional support for food, school uniforms, and books to 10 children in Njiro, Arusha.
We are so grateful to our partners and friends especially Eric Husman who continue to donate their hard-earned cash towards this project. Through your generous support, you are impacting the lives of children, especially the Girl Child in Arusha, Tanzania.
