Challenge

In Tanzania, 437,500 street children face a harsh reality due to violence and abuse at home, with 38% living in single-mother households. The country also grapples with 2.6 million orphans, 40% due to AIDS, and orphanhood peaks at 18% among older children. Public schools, often poor, hinder education progression, leading to low high school qualifications. Only 5% advance to secondary school, with high dropout rates. Many HIV/AIDS orphans lack family support and struggle with fees for school.

Solution

The Wow Tanzania Student Fund addresses a critical need in the education sector: identifying gifted, motivated students lacking financial means and connecting them with sponsors. By raising funds, the program sponsors vulnerable students, providing them with life-changing opportunities. Benefits include improved academic performance, higher quality classwork, positive attitudes, reduced violence, and lower likelihood of substance abuse, ensuring a brighter future for these deserving students.

Long-Term Impact

Sponsor a child's education to help them realize dreams and build a thriving community. Impact: higher graduation rates, healthier lifestyles, enhanced confidence, stronger relationships, decreased drug use. Break the cycle of poverty with education. Your support can help our children enjoy careers in teaching, nursing, tourism, and various trades that give back to the community in an impactful way.
