Support a Secondary School in Tanzania
The Sega Girls Secondary Boarding School, located in Morogoro, Tanzania, supports poor vulnerable girls who have dropped out of school due to poverty. You can help support the boarding school by helping to support meals, transportation, or security for the school.
In Tanzania, over 5 million children are out of school and only 18% of girls have completed secondary school. Almost a quarter of all girls are mothers or pregnant between the ages of 15-19. Keeping girls in school is a major factor in countering the early marriage, early pregnancy pattern; continued schooling also increases the potential for girls to earn a better living, helping not only lift the girl out of poverty but benefit her family and community as well.
