Helping our girls follow their dreams
Thanks to your support, and that of their sponsors, we are delighted to report that 9 girls from the safe house have now gone on to further studies to follow their dreams.
Rehema has joined her Pharmacy collage at Tandabui in Mwanza region, and is progressing well. Josephina, Sarah and Joyce have joined their tour guide course at Tumaini College in Arusha region and 5 girls are studying hospitality in Moshi and Zanzibar. Amina will soon start university to further her dream to be a lawyer. We will be posting further updates on their progress here soon.
But many girls are still in need of support to further their education, so if you are in a position to help it would be very much appreciated. There is more information here.
Thanks to you we are continuing to support 175 girls in our safe houses. They are all in education or vocational training. You can see my updates on all our activities here.
We have continued to do our outreach activities to educate our communities against FGM and Child Marriage. This is particularly important as we expect a cutting season in December. Our Digital Champions are a vital part of our community protection networks and so we are delighted that we have been able to expand them to Butiama and Tarime Districts. We have also been able to reach many people by participating in the Serengeti Cultural Festival and African Child Day celebration.
Poverty is one of the drivers of child marriage and FGM, and so we have been training villagers in better agriculture and how to detect pests in their main crops of cassava and maize, using a phone app called Plant Nuru.
Thank you for your support to help our girls realise their dreams.
