Challenge

Nkaiti Ward with its four villages in Manyara Region,Tanzania; is affected by early marriages as 34% of girls are married before reaching the 18 years old. Early Marriages violates girl's rights to health, education and opportunity. It exposes girls to violence throughout their lives. Nkaiti's community lack the knowledge about the effect of early marriages, and the vulnerable families cant afford to provide school supplies to their student girls so they prefer child marriage with a bride price

Solution

We educate 14,000 Nkaiti's community members about the adverse ills of early marriage. Teach sexual and reproductive health in schools and communities. Providing school supplies, including school uniform,socks,shoes,undergarment, bicycle and sanitary products to vulnerable teenager girls. Providing entrepreneur skills and hens to each marginalized families of marginalized teenager girls for enable them to secure some addition fund to support their daughter in school.

Long-Term Impact

Your support will have a direct impact to 14000 community member to be aware on the ills of early marriages and support girls rights to delay marriages and remain/rejoin in schools. And it's only through partners like you that our programming is possible. Donations help our staff provide, education, school supplies and so much more. With your support, we can continue providing essential services to those who need them most. Thank you for helping us end early marriages in Nkaiti Ward - Tanzania
