Support ACEI’s Preschool Project in Tanzania
ACEI is proud to be supporting the building of a preschool for young girls in the village of Kitenga, Tanzania, East Africa. Tanzania made an important step toward improving access to education with the abolition of school fees in 2000, but there is still a great need to encourage and support school enrollment, especially for girls. As is the case in some African countries, young girls in rural areas are often married at an early age and assume duties of their household, limiting their educational opportunities. Traditional roles for woman, therefore, may not support the concept of educating girls.
We will need your help to ensure that this school becomes a reality. The school will serve as a state-of-the-art model school. The entire cost of a classroom and playground is around $15,000. ACEI Headquarters began this campaign with a donation of $5,000.
We hope that all ACEI members will consider giving to this important project. If you wish to donate to this project as a gift to honor a friend or a loved one, please write the person’s name and address on a short note when you send your check to ACEI. We will send them a thank you and let them know that you have donated to this project in their name.
Please send your contribution to ACEI Headquarters, 1101 16th St., N.W., Ste. 300, Washington, D.C. 20036. Make checks payable to ACEI, and write “Tanzania Project” in the memo line of the check.
