Give girls in Tanzania a safe place to sleep and study!
Adolescent girls in Longido District, Tanzania live in the precarious balance between marriage and education. Living in traditional Maasai homes far from the main village, young girls are isolated and cut off from essential academic support programs that foster success in secondary school. TEMBO is launching a fundraising campaign to build a 12-room hostel that will accommodate up to 72 girls in a safe and nurturing environment. They will have access to clean water and proper sanitation. This hostel is critical to the delivery of TEMBO’s academic support programs.
To live true to our vision – educating for equal opportunities in northern Tanzania - the time has come for us to build our own girls’ hostel that will provide a bright, secure, positive living environment for the girls as they strive to achieve their academic dreams.
