For girls from poor families in Tanzania, receiving a quality education remains a challenge. The families that have money for schooling tend to prioritize the education of boys over girls. Gender inequality in fields of study is common, especially in the science fields. Even when girls are able to attend, secondary schools struggle to keep up with increased enrollment. Some students, especially girls, must walk for hours to attend school.
The Anglican Diocese of Mpwapwa opened Queen Esther Girls Secondary School to educate local girls whose families couldn't afford school fees. The school teaches academic subjects, and also instills discipline and moral values found in God’s word.
The Diocese of Mpwapwa will build a girls hostel at Queen Esther Girl School that will accommodate 100 students. It will also build a science block and library that will benefit 450students.
Funds will cover the cost of construction, equipment for three laboratory rooms, the hostel rooms, and the library. Evening Bible study will encourage the girls to develop good character and reduce their vulnerability to negative influences.
