It is January and the TEMBO staff in Longido, Tanzania are busy helping girls and their families prepare for a new school year. Bedding, books and toiletries are being packed carefully into bright blue metal trunks while the 42 girls in Form 1 head off to the local seamstress to be measured for a new school uniform. 

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors, TEMBO will be sponsoring more than 150 young adolescent girls for secondary school in 2021.  TEMBO wishes all of the girls a successful and safe school year. 

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
