Education Support

In the Maasai Community, high level of illiteracy as a result of limited access to education, especially for women and girls, presents a serious obstacle to community growth and development. As a result, many families still send only boys to school, keeping girls at home to help with housework, agriculture, and looking after other siblings.

UNICEF and others have shown that educating girls not only helps them to become financially independent in the future, but also leads to decreases in maternal and infant mortality. Educated mothers are more likely to share good hygiene and health practices with their families and communities, and they are more likely to send their own daughters to school. Through our education program, our projects seek to find solutions towards these pressing challenges. Our projects include supporting young graduates to volunteer their skills and time teaching students in public schools in rural Tanzania. Our project proved to be effective in raising student performance in schools that are involved in our projects.

Furthermore, we support students from low-income families with no financial strength to support their schooling. Also, to ensure the best future for Tanzania’s children, TACCEI focuses on generating knowledge on the situation of women and children in Tanzania for evidence-based advocacy and planning.  Contact us to learn more about our education program and how you can help.
