The Plan-B Program
In Tanzania, all children between the ages of 7 to 15 years are obliged to attend school. We refer to this as “Plan A”. Unfortunately many young girls drop out of governement education because of socio-economic reasons (including marriage / pregnancy / family economics etc.). Often they are not able to return to government schools after that.
So, we have established the “Plan-B” Program. This program implements interventions and projects to empower poor, vulnerable young women and girls by addressing, through further EDUCATION, the socio-economic consequences of dropping out of school and failing exams.
The Plan-B Program stands for:
– Back to School
– Be Equal
– Be Strong
– Be the best you can be!
