Programs

In order to fulfill our mission of developing accessible resources for girls and young women, we have established five main programs. The largest program is the Integrated Early Childhood Development (IEDC) program, which focuses on ensuring Tanzanian girls get the care and education they so rightly deserve. The Women Economic Empowerment (WEE) program and the Child Rights Advocacy (CRA) program work with adults in the community to train them on how to successfully care for their children. WEE works with enabling impoverished mothers to financially support their children, while CRA reaches out to educate local political leaders on their duty and responsibility in protecting the rights of children (particularly girls). The focus of the Adolescent Girls Empowerment (AGE) program is to provide practical training and education to teenage girls so that they’re able to live successful, independent lives. The Street Girls Reunification (SGR) program has been established in order to get girls off of the street and back into safe and stable homes.

Each program has at least one project that it is working on at any given time. Generally, one program will be heading up the project, but the other programs will also be interacting with that project.  In addition, representatives/individuals from the community (such as local volunteers, social workers, and local tradesmen) work with the programs on certain projects, bringing in expertise or community connections. When all work in harmony with each other, the projects get accomplished more efficiently, with better effects on the girls involved.
