Today, we share with you 3 stories from TEMBO sponsored girls and updates on where they are at this time.
The stories were part of a larger project in 2019 called ’15 Girls’ during our 15th anniversary. These stories brought to life the issues faced by young girls in Tanzania, the people who inspired them and the girls’ determination to move beyond the challenges of forced marriage, early pregnancy or poverty.
The girls are always very keen to talk about their families, their home environment and what it means to go to school. Some laugh when they recall funny anecdotes from home while others shed a tear as they think of what their futures might have looked like without education.
Our thanks to Selina, Adela, Nyekonde, Simayo, Tepeyan and Ngaaya.
