Only 19% of the children in the rural farming district of Bunda, Tanzania
go on to secondary school. Many are living in poverty and must drop out of school to support their families who cannot produce enough food to eat. Boys often find employment in underpaid and dangerous jobs. Girls are especially at risk of being sold into marriage, engaging in transactional relationships or early pregnancies.
Building the Future will provide school children and youth with agricultural trainings in their own school settings, teaching them how improve crop production and improve food security for themselves and their families. The children will also learn about child labour, sexual rights, and the issues of HIV/AIDS, which is higher than the national average in this district.
Make a Gift of Change of $2,000 towards Building the Future and help children and youth in this district to receive a fair chance at a safe and secure future. With the generous match by UNIFOR, your donation of $2,000 will be leveraged to a total investment of $8,000 - thereby stretching the value and impact of your philanthropic gift.
This project addresses the following 9 Global Goals as outlined by the United Nation’s 23 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
