In Tanzania primary school is taught in Swahili and secondary school is taught in English. To bridge this gap the Grumeti Fund and Concordia Language Villages developed a program to help fifth graders become more confident speaking English in preparation for their move to secondary school. The program has been in place for three years, growing and reaching more children every year.
In one weekend the Grumeti Fund reached over 1,500 girls in empowerment events that focused on gender equality, confidence, education and health-related topics. Each girl received a re-usable pad and guest speaker Rebeca Gyumi inspired everyone.
