November 12, 2021: TEMBO is awarded $7K from the Gay Lea Foundation for the Girl Care Program for one calendar year (2022).
While enrollment in secondary school is a critical first step for girls in northern Tanzania, many continue to live in the precarious balance between marriage and education. In response, TEMBO has developed the Girl Care program, a 24-hour care program for TEMBO-sponsored girls who face significant hardship while they are completing their secondary school education. Participants stay in the TEMBO Girls’ Hostel before, during and/or after the school year while a team of support staff ensures they are actively involved in skills development and education.
TEMBO Canada gratefully acknowledges the support of the Gay Lea Foundation and is pleased to be one of 11 charities across Canada receiving support.
