We are so excited to hear how the scholars over at AfricAid’s Kisa Project, one of our partner programs in Tanzania, pay it forward to younger girls just entering into the two-year program.
We recently received an update on a trip some of the current Kisa Scholars from Arusha Secondary School made to two Tanzanian secondary schools entering the program–Edmund Rice Secondary School and Enaboishu Secondary School. The scholars spoke to the girls about how the Kisa Project can be their gateway to success. They encouraged the girls to apply for this program run by AfricAid. Nice, a current scholar, said: “We girls have great dreams to make change in our communities. Opportunities are there; we should grab them with our two hands. Kisa is an opportunity!”
As always, we are beyond excited to see the Kisa Scholar program grow and spread into more communities in Tanzania. You can support by writing comments back to Elizabeth, Grace and Happiness, the three Kisa Scholars She’s the First sponsored in 2010 as a result of GIRLS WHO ROCK. They are now in their second year of the program. (We are about to begin correspondence with two more Kisa Scholars, Eli and Glory, whose education was funded by the $4,000+ our Flip cams raised!) And of course, you could help fundraise to sponsor a sixth scholar — learn more here!
