Vision

The Girls Foundation of Tanzania provides both formal and informal educational opportunities to economically vulnerable adolescent girls and young women.

In Tanzania many girls are forced to drop out of school because their parents cannot afford the school fees. TGFT provides secondary school sponsorships to motivated and gifted students. Our goal is to improve their ability to excel in their studies by incorporating both academic and emotional support throughout their high school years.

95% of girls in Tanzania do not finish high school. At The Girls Center we will inform and prepare each girl with the confidence and skills they need to define their talents and future goals. Our focus is individualized: one girl at a time.

Girls, as future women, mothers, and workers, have the power to influence the lives of those around them and to lead by example in their communities. The Girls Center provides access to life skills and leadership training to adolescent girls and young women who have been excluded from traditional educational, training and employment opportunities.
