Mission

The Girls Foundation of Tanzania provides educational support for bright girls who would otherwise be unable to continue their education beyond primary school. Our support includes tuition scholarship, learning opportunities outside of the classroom, internships, access to medical services and career guidance. We partner with each student through the critical years of secondary and high school so each girl can achieve her educational goals and fulfill her full potential.
