Challenge

In rural areas of Africa, a small amount of money to pay for school uniforms, school supplies, and exam fees often makes all the difference between a child staying in school or dropping out. In rural communities, Camfed's Safety Net Fund helps children who are orphaned, or from child-headed households.This project enables schools in the Kilosa district of rural Tanzania to meet the pressing needs of 500 children at risk of dropping out, providing security and hope.

Solution

Safety Net grants empower primary and secondary schools to address the neediest children's difficult circumstances as they arise - often for as little as $10-20 per child - thus helping more children stay in school and continue their education.

Long-Term Impact

The project will meet school costs for 500 orphans and vulnerable children, enabling the neediest children in a community to obtain the education crucial to improving their long-term prospects and supporting their own future families.
