I aim to raise enough money to be able to fund the building of a school in a region where it is vital. There is a critical need for a new school in the impoverished town of Singida in Tanzania. I would like to help the girls of Singida by providing them with a learning environment every girl should have access to.
This project is organised through the Ursuline Congregation. They have done multiple projects similar to this and have already helped thousands of girls get a brighter future. We have also already done multiple projects with them and can ensure that all the raised money will be used for building the school.
I am currently aiming to collect 46,743 euros to be able to fund 3 classrooms.
The next phase is to collect funds to build a bathroom.
The last phase is to build an administration office.
I believe that everybody should have equal rights, especially when it comes to the fundamentals of life. Education is most definitely one of them. Considering education, there is globally a huge gender inequality. Generally, the boys go to school because they need to get a job later to financially support their family but girls either only go to school for an insufficient amount of time or don’t get education at all. This is because of various reasons: girls get forced into early marriage, they try to escape from gender violence, traditionally their culture doesn’t let them go to school or takes them out of school earlier. These are just some of the main reasons girls do not have access to education. When girls get educated, the gender gaps close because mostly boys are educated and girls are out of school, working in their household or getting married earlier. However when girls get educated they can also have a chance to contribute to the economy by getting a job. This project will help society become fairer and more equal because gender inequality will reduce. Not only will the world become a fairer place and economies will flourish, the girls themselves will benefit because they are more likely to live healthy, productive lives and are less likely to get married early. They create better futures for themselves and their family, earn greater wages, and take part in choices that most directly impact them. (“Girls’ Education”)
Hello! I am Pia, a 15 year old student in 11th grade. I am doing this project because I believe in equality and would like to help less fortunate children get an education, which I believe is essential and should be a right that every child has. More information about the project and why I am doing it can be found in the project information.
I visited Tanzania and stopped by some schools there. I got to visualise the schools there and realised that there are way more children, more specifically girls, out of school than in school. One reason for this is simply that there are not enough schools to educate all the children. That’s the reason I decided to start this project: to hopefully help educate more children.
I visited the area there and identified the need to start a new school because there are way more children out of school than in school. The Ursuline Congregation had set up a project to build a school there and I have been associated with them for a long time. Therefore I can ensure that 100% of the raised money will be utilised towards building the school. But I will try to do more projects like this in other places of the world in the future.
