Form Four Exam Results - Girls Education Collaborative

No one likes to fail an exam! But what if it's not an option?

Read from Peres, Form 4 student and Pioneer at the Kitenga Girls Secondary School who just passed her final exams. She reflect on the hardships facing girls in Tanzania, and how it impacts her and her peers even when enrolled in school.

"Being a girl with good results provides more chances to go on with higher education, but having poor results provides risk. The risk is the chance of getting married because one cannot go on with studies and therefore the only choice is to get married and start a family.

We thank God for the good results and everyone who passed the national exams is happy."

Today is SO important. It is Kitenga Girls Secondary School's first ever graduation!

Twenty-nine amazing and world-changing young women have completed their four years of lower secondary education and they are the school's Pioneers!

In this region of Tanzania where only 16% of all girls make it this far in their education and more than 50% of girls are married before they turn eighteen, Kitenga students are all intending to continue their educations and take it to the next level. They are aspiring lawyers, doctors, astronauts, teachers and civil society change-leaders!

They have excelled in a demanding academic setting. They have developed and honed leadership skills and developed agency. They are multi-talented and hold all possible potential within each one of them.

They wouldn't have had this life-pivoting opportunity if it were not for the steadfast commitment of the Immaculate Heart Sisters of Africa and the profound generosity of the GEC Community.

It is truly a BIG DAY in Kitenga! Thank you for your support, always. πŸ’

πŸ’™ Together we raised funds to support TEN GIRLS to enroll at the Kitenga Girls Secondary School in 2021! We cannot thank you enough for bringing us one step closer to giving girls the education they deserve. πŸ’™

Especially in this challenging year, the response from the GEC community is as impressive as ever - we're truly amazed by your dedication to support and inform people around you about girls education.

And we are not stopping there!! GEC is continuing to raise until the end of 2020 to support even MORE GIRLS to school next year. Please continue to support them and raise awareness for girls education. #thewholegirl #thewholeworld #girlseducation

Nice, one of our students, credits the Kitenga Girls Secondary School for gaining self-determination! Because of her ability to attend school, she knows herself and her capabilities.

You are an inspiration! Congratulations!
Hongereni wanangu
Anne, thank you so much for your inspiring and informative presentation today on GEC's work in Tanzania on behalf of girls, their communities, and the future. I loved that there were 13-year-old American girls there to hear about some of the challenges facing their African sisters.
Is there any way to order the tshirts you were selling at Malala? They sold out before I could get some!
I am so proud that I have finally been able to meet these wonderful, beautiful, hard-working young ladies. Please consider helping us out to educate not only these girls but the whole world!!
