Access to education for girls in rural areas has been a challenge especially in developing world.Girls in rural areas face long and dangerous journeys into school, or are put up in accommodation(ghetto) in the town where they are preyed upon by men resulting to pregnancies where Tanzania government do not allow pregnant girls to continue with school education.
"Every girl to school" project is an initiative looking to help student girls to stay in schools by provision of secure hostel accomodation. The initiative looks to give beds to the selected schools located in rural Tanzania which have started the program but they suffer from shortage of beds or they have building set aside for boarding but they lack beds.
With this initiative, we believe many girls will have chances and possibilities to complete secondary education and perhaps be able to join higher level education.
I welcome everyone who wish to support to accept the challenge and stay tuned for updates about how the challenge will rescue girls in rural Tanzania from early marriages and give them a better future.
Here are the selected secondary schools for the program at this moment.
Nambinzo Sec. School
Nkanga Sec. School
