2023 Auction: A Huge Success!

Together, we raised more than a whopping $20,000 to support girls and women in northern Tanzania!

From all of us, heartfelt thanks go to the many of you who participated in this year’s TEMBO Online Auction.

Special shoutouts to the businesses and individuals who generously donated for the cause. From experiences and vacation stays to handcrafted items from Tanzania, the wide range of items and services meant that we could attract new donors and expand our donor base even further.

Participants enjoyed not only the auction but also the opportunity to buy products for TEMBO students. In response to a post-auction survey, some of the auction participants stated:

“I bought pads for girls because feminine hygiene is often a barrier to education. Removing that obstacle just makes sense!” – Macarena

“As a supporter of TEMBO’s work I find it a privilege to participate in the auction. I chose to purchase some of the sewing kits because I believe that teaching young people skills that are useful in their households and may help them to earn a living, is a step in their self-empowerment.” – Peter

And 100% of the respondents indicated that they are looking forward to participating next year!
