Congratulations to Our First High School Graduate
On April 18th, Mariam graduated from A levels (equivalent to high school in the U.S.) a t Baobab Girls School. She was awarded the prize for the Best Student in Accountancy! We are so proud of her academic success!
Mariam wants to become an accountant or a business woman. During her Gap Year she interned at Meru Community Bank and gained skills in accounting, record-keeping, and setting up savings and checking accounts. Only 5% of girls graduate from high school in Tanzania so Mariam's achievement is exceptional. While at boarding school Mariam has received a quality education; at The Girls Center she has learned about reproductive health and life skills, which will equip her to make informed, healthy and positive decisions for a wiser future.
