Why We Cycled for TEMBO

“Education is a fundamental human right, yet it is a huge privilege for many young girls in Northern Tanzania. It is the beacon of hope, the key that unlocks endless opportunities. These girls will become architects of change, shaping their destinies and transforming their communities for years! The transformation of Northern Tanzania begins with these girls. When you educate a girl, you educate a whole community and nation!”
– Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Manager at Algoma University, Jane Omollo
