In Tanzania, 95% of girls do not finish high school. AfricAid is trying to dramatically change this statistic by giving girls in East Africa the opportunity of education, thus giving these young women a voice in their future, and in the future of their communities.
Our approach is to reach, teach, and empower. AfricAid gives girls the basic opportunity to go to school, works to provide high-quality learning experiences and empowers these young girls to become leaders, reaching the next generation of girls.
AfricAid allows students to gain access to basic education by providing scholarships to primary and secondary schools, as well as colleges.
AfricAid is involved with projects that work to provide meaningful educational experiences. These projects include classroom construction, a school lunch program, vocational training initiatives and teacher training.
AfricAid's Kisa Project is a 2-year mentorship and leadership development program for girls entering their last 2 years of secondary school. Upon graduation, these girls return to their home communities to mentor groups of other young women, creating the next generation of leaders across Africa.
Finally, there is a saying in Africa that if you educate a man you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a family. By giving these women the tools they need to improve their lives and the lives of those around them. AfricAid helps to empower young African girls to become leaders, reaching the next generation of girls, bringing change across the landscape of Africa.
Our school lunch program at Losinoni Primary School provides lunch for the entire school, 950 students, for only $25 a day! A donation of $5 would provide 190 meals.
