In many African countries, boys are encouraged to study or play after school, while girls are expected to perform household chores. Just 5% of Tanzanian females finish high school. For those that do attend school, supplies are limited and books are scarce.
SHARE in Africa is working to change all that. SHARE has provided thousands of African girls with books, new desks, desperately needed school supplies, study programs and access to advanced education. These girls are overcoming prejudice, gaining skills, and working toward brighter futures.
Now, our main focus is providing scholarships so girls can attend high school. We know there is no limit to what a girl can do with a quality education. Our motto: “Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.”
