Janet is her name and she is 16 years of age. She stays with both her mother and father and her two siblings. Because of her parents’ financial situation, who are both famers, they could only manage to send their son to school, and Janet stayed home. Sometimes, she would accompany her mum to sell the harvest from their unstable farm.
Since TANF believe in girls’ education, we quickly took the initiative to enroll her in school. Now, she is currently in stage 6 and is happily pursing her vision to become a lawyer in the future.
We extend a very big thanks to donors like you. Bless you all.
At TANF we have set the priority on to running more public awareness campaigns covering the topic of teenage pregnancy and how can one can prevents them. Since we started our Child Sponsorship Program, we have discovered more cases of girls aged 14-15 getting pregnant, being an important gap in our focus area, that we have decided to address by educating both teenage girls and boys about the importance of safe-sex education and early-pregnancy prevention. We have launched a new campaign: TANF Rural Women and girls Empowerment Project to raise needed awareness and funds to make it happen. Join us today!
At Tanf, we believe that every child is important and deserves and equal opportunity to education. As such we make try our possible best to make sure that no child is left out. Regardless of their situation we ensure they get the right resource to pursue a quality education.
This is the story of Basira, a bright young girl who has the hope to be educated but had to drop out of school due to the luck of family supports.
With the help of wonderful donors like you we have been able to enroll her back to school. She is currently enjoying her education life in school. The impact of your generous donations has enabled her increased her attendance and academic performance.
Now, she has high hopes in achieving her dream of becoming a medical Doctor in-future!
