Girls in Northern Tanzania may not have heard of the ME TOO Movement but they certainly have the spirit of it. More and more, they are asking for what is rightfully theirs: an equal opportunity to go to school!
In a society where girls have traditionally been prevented from going to school, families are now realizing that education can enhance a young woman’s ability to support herself and her family. It can also greatly improve maternal and child health and ability to thrive.
Since 2007, TEMBO has made it possible for more than 300 girls to attend school. This September, as Canadian children return to school, help make it possible for Tanzanian girls to “go” to school.
