Summary

After girls in remote regions of Tanzania complete secondary school, their educational paths often come to an end for financial reasons. With support, however, they do have options to pursue post-secondary education. If they do well on national exams, they could attend high school. Otherwise, they can opt for professional training through vocational schools or a range of certificate or diploma programs. This project aims to support girls as they strive toward their educational goals.

Challenge

Secondary school fees were waived recently, which opened the option of secondary education to many more students from remote and underserved regions of Tanzania. Girls Ed has made great strides to make sure our students excel in secondary school so that they have options beyond Form 4. With the success of our study camps and other educational initiatives, more and more girls are completing secondary school and hoping to pursue post-secondary studies. Unfortunately, the costs are prohibitive.

Solution

This project will help us cover the expenses our students face as they seek to pursue post-secondary education through different pathways, including high school, vocational school, and certificate or diploma programs. Already we have several girls studying to become school teachers, one to be a nurse, two in high school, and one working as an administrative assistant in a law office, thanks to the vocational training program we supported her through. The impact is evident to us. Help us do more.

Long-Term Impact

When a girl completes secondary school she is empowered through her education to seek greater opportunities for herself and eventually her children. She will likely advocate for herself and her family with relation to healthcare and education. However, with the addition of post-secondary education, she is further empowered to make decisions related to her career, marriage, and family planning. An educated woman contributes to an educated society, so even her impact on community will be profound.
