Celebrate an anniversary, birthday or special day or recognize someone special with a gift and send a card to acknowledge your gift. Your donation will help change lives.
In Tanzania, only 32% of girls continue on from primary school to secondary school. TEMBO has been working with the community in Longido and Kimokouwa to sponsor girls for secondary school. Since 2004, TEMBO has sponsored more than 300 girls to go to school. Many of these girls have completed Form 4 and continued on to vocational training programs.
TEMBO works in the heart of the Maasai community where women have traditionally been marginalized and faced great hardship including forced marriages and early pregnancies, poor access to education and limited opportunities to contribute to their families and communities.
In 2016, the Longido District Learning Centre was officially opened. Today, the Learning Centre provides programs for individuals of all ages including: pre-school programs for children under the age of 5, after school programs for primary school children, study programs for secondary school students and academic upgrading for adults.
