We're Helping Smart Girls Get Smarter

October 1, 2017



October 11 is International Day of the Girl; the perfect day to pay tribute to our remarkable group of girls who graduated from secondary school last weekend. We are so proud of their accomplishments!


Ewaldina won two prizes at graduation: for her sportsmanship as a superb soccer player and for the top student in religion class!

Our Form 4 students are now preparing to take the Form 4 National Examinations in November. The Results of these exams will be announced in July when the girls will then matriculate to high school. During this 7 month-period, all 11th graders across Tanzania are not attending school. Beyond the ‘learning loss’ that will occur, it is a vulnerable time for girls who are at home helping their families with household chores like fetching water and firewood and taking care of their younger siblings.

In December, these four graduates will begin their Gap Year Program at The Girls Center which is comprised of:

  • internships at a local bank, clinic or business

  • a computer course

  • an adolescent sexual health training workshop

  • community service


TGFT Gap Year Girls will have access to new experiences and role models and be empowered with skills and knowledge.
