Summary

In Tanzania, girls often become victims of sexual abuses during their secondary school years. In 2017, in the Tanzanian Kagera region, more than 300 Secondary School female students dropped out of school because of unwanted pregnancy, usually from abuse and sexual harassment. For this reason, FOH ask for your help to build a girls' residence for Jipe Moyo Secondary School, so that we can protect them from these abuses and help them to successfully finish their education.

Challenge

The dangers that we are facing in this challenge is that girls are increasingly becoming victims of sexual abuses in many Secondary Schools in Kagera Region. Last year, more than 300 Secondary School female students dropped out of school because of pregnancy, usually from abuse and sexual harassment. This is the main reason why we are asking for help to be enabled to build a girls' Hostel for Jipe Moyo Secondary School, so that we can protect them from these abuses.

Solution

To change this dramatic situation, the Jipe Moyo School initiated the project to build a student residence dedicated to protect girls from the dangers that prevent them from completing their studies. By building this student residence, girls will have a safe place to stay and therefore to pursue their education.

Long-Term Impact

With this girls hostel, we can protect from these abuses, which prevent girls from successfully finishing their education. Hence, rates of sexual abuse, undesired pregnancies, as well as AIDS will be reduced considerably in the region. Meanwhile, the rates of girls finishing their secondary school studies would considerably increase too which will help in the social and economic development of the region.
