Sarah attended the first session of the PASS (Primary and Secondary SUCCESS) program in 2013. As a young girl of 13, Sarah caught the attention of her teachers with her strong spirit and drive for learning. In January of the following year, Sarah was sponsored by TEMBO to attend Lekule Girls School. Over the course of four years, Sarah developed a keen interest in nutritional sciences. During the 2017 TEMBO English Camp, she practiced her cake making skills over the open pit fire.
In November 2017, Sarah completed four years of secondary school education and wrote to TEMBO with words of gratitude. “Thank you very much for helping me because you removed me from bad cultural practices where only boys are educated. TEMBO knows the problems faced by pastoralism children and helps us to get an education. I have expanded my knowledge.”
Sarah is now completing a vocational training program in Dodoma with the support of TEMBO.
