Education and Equality in Tanzania: Changing Worlds with stories!
Human Rights Watch recognizes some of the issues with education in Africa.
“Tanzanian law and international treaties that Tanzania has ratified, everyone under 18 has a right to education. Yet hundreds of thousands of children in Tanzania are pushed out of school each year long before they reach 18 because they fail the Primary School Leaving Exam. Passing the exam is required for access to public secondary education. But more than 400,000 children, 49.4 percent, failed the exam in 2013. The year before, a staggering 69.3 percent failed. Girls are disproportionately affected, with lower percentages passing the exam. (Kippenberg, 2014)
The actual percentage of the children that actually make it through secondary education is even more deplorable. “The net enrollment rate for lower secondary education is 30.8 percent, and for upper secondary education only 1.9 percent.” (USAid.gov, 2014)
How can we find ways to foster education, increase volunteer training and network-building initiatives, help empower women and assist in conservation initiatives in the Serengeti?
By honouring and witnessing humanity at its best, we hope to inspire and forge new narratives of what is possible.
