SUPPORTING GIRLS AND WOMEN DURING COVID 19

During the COVID-19 pandemic help TEMBO providing essential food packages to those in particularly challenging situations, learning materials to help girls study at home and toiletries to stay healthy.

In May 2020, more than 60 individuals – children, families, mothers and daughters – walked with a purpose – to support the Longido community during the Covid 19 crisis. Read more about this amazing fundraising campaign here.

FIGHTING COVID-19 THROUGH EDUCATION

*** NEW VIDEO  filmed at TEMBO in Longido, Tanzania in May 2020 as part of a conversation between our Community Facilitator and a TEMBO sponsored girl as they discuss how COVID-19 can be transmitted in the community and the impact it is having  on students.

 

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads through Tanzania, TEMBO is still working to support the women and girls in Longido District. Currently, schools are closed and the 143 girls we are sponsoring for secondary school are at home trying to continue their studies.  Our TEMBO staff are reaching out to the families in remote villages to ensure they are safe and provide each girl with health education, toiletries, food and learning materials.

TEMBO Canada 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.

TEMBO believes in the power of education and the ways in which education can transform communities.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

– Nelson Mandela
