Imagine a child enrolled at a high-quality school in rural Moshi, Tanzania. This is all her mother wants for her child – a chance at a better life that comes from getting a good education. This child has no father and lives with her mother and a grandmother. Then her mother gets sick and they can no longer afford school fees. The girl is shattered – she can no longer attend the school she loves, the place that provides her a high-quality education, a lunch and friendships. Now what?
Due to the funds provided by Elimu Africa this girl gets to stay in school! Our funds are used to keep kids in school that otherwise would be unable to attend due to emergency situations like that described above. And, that story is not uncommon. Stay tuned for our student profiles coming soon!
