This project will provide a mentorship program for young women in secondary school in Tanzania, providing in-country support for our scholars for the best possible educational experience.


Young women face remarkable challenges in progressing past primary school. According to Maryam Yussuf, Commissioner of Education in Zanzibar and supporter of S4Si, there is a dramatic decrease in female student enrollment between primary and secondary school due increased household duties, early marriage, and a family’s poverty level. At the university level the numbers are even more skewed. There is a crisis in women’s access to education.


We want to provide the best possible educational experience to our scholars so that they can go out and become productive members of society, improving not only their country but also the role of women in it.

Long-Term Impact

The World Bank says that 1 additional year of secondary school will increase a young woman’s eventual wages by 15-25%. Because women typically invest the vast majority of their income into their families, educating women betters futures generations.
