TEMBO is a federally incorporated registered Canadian charity that partners with local organizations in Tanzania to address issues of girls’ education, empowerment of women, poverty and human rights.

SUPPORTING GIRLS' EDUCATION

In 2024, TEMBO is sponsoring 173 girls for secondary school including 45 girls who started Form 1 in January.

Each girl receives the necessary support to attend school including a school uniform, bedding and a trunk, toiletries and educational resources. TEMBO also provides support for a mentorship program provided by the TEMBO (Tanzania) staff to help motivate the girls to study hard and stay in school.

Before attending secondary school, the girls attend PASS (Primary and Secondary Success Program), a 10-week academic support program that helps the girls transition from primary school.

During the school year, the girls attend TEC (TEMBO English Camp), a 3-week tutoring program between Term 1 and Term 2 where they receive instruction and support from local secondary school teachers.

Girls’ education lies at the heart of TEMBO’s mission and as a supporter of TEMBO, we want you to be the first to hear about the girls and their school experiences.

Sign up for our newsletter and read about the impact of education for the girls and their families.

 

LITERACY CLASSES FOR MAASAI WOMEN

TEMBO supports life long learning for 120 Maasai women in rural, remote villages in Longido District, Tanzania.

Each week, women gather under an Acacia tree or in empty classrooms in three remote rural villages. The goal of the program is to provide women with access to basic literacy and numeracy, and a forum for talking about key issues such as women’s rights, the importance of education and women’s health.

The program is provided jointly by our Tanzanian partners, TEMBO (Tanzania) and Learning in Longido.

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.
