  • Description

    Description

    this is a non-profit organization that is determined to help young girls in Tanzania, since July 2012. The main goal is to provide young girls in Tanzania education and shelter and therefore a better future. We strongly believe that education is the door to freedom and a chance of a bright future for all girls.

    OUR MISSION
    - to facilitate, empower and build capacity of these girls and their community on social-economic, traditional and cultural aspects.
    - Teach girls to stand up for themselves, that they are equal to their brothers and any other citizens, teach them to protect themselves form HIV and AIDS, teach them skills to provide for themselves.

    Current Progress:
    We are a small organisation that has helped over 40 girls in Mwanza, we have provided not only English and cooking lessons but also vocational skills such as agriculture, sewing, and arts & crafts. Many of the girls have now a health card which enables medical help through the year. We have also a restaurant space where the older girls can take cooking lessons and prepare food, as a result the money raised can sustain the foundation and help developing other projects.
    We wish to continue supplying more aid to other girls in need and we aim to do so with funds raising and donations.
