In March, TEMBO provided suppport for a new group of Maasai women to join the outreach program offered in three remote villages in Longido District, Tanzania.
Each week, the women gather under a tree at the base of Mt. Longido. The goal of the program is to provide women with access to basic literacy and numeracy, and provide an opportunity for women to gain an understanding of 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.
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.
Your generosity can help send a girl to school complete with a new school uniform, trunk, toiletries and books for school.
