According to UNICEF, a mere 3.2% of children in Tanzania are enrolled in the final two years of schooling. In 2021, 11 TEMBO-sponsored girls are beating the odds.
In July, the staff worked with the girls and their families to help them prepare for Form 5. Together, they packed their trunks with new bedding, toiletries and books for advanced studies in physics, biology and the arts. This is a remarkable achievement as girls in Tanzania are more likely to be married by the age of 18 than to be enrolled in secondary school.
In 2021, TEMBO is sponsoring a total of 15 girls for studies at the upper secondary level including 11 girls in Form 5 and 4 girls in Form 6.
