Challenge

Most girls in Tanzania have little hope of a productive future. Being one of the poorest countries in the world, with one of the lowest secondary school enrollment rates, and one of the highest dropout rates of girls.

Solution

Long-Term Impact

The most effective way to assist vulnerable and disadvantaged girls in Tanzania is to provide quality education. Research has shown that educating girls at the secondary level results in: Higher wages and better jobs, delayed marriage and lower birth rates, better health, nutrition, sanitation, immunization and education for their own children.
