Rural Tanzania can be a difficult place for girls to grow up and thrive. Undue pressure is often put on girls to carry out domestic work such as fetching water and preparing meals, giving girls less time to dedicate to their studies as compared to boys. For girls who lack access to menstrual products, it is not uncommon for them to miss a week of school every month. The impact of these barriers results in fewer girls passing school as compared to boys.
ACCF supports programs that provide access to scholarships, menstrual hygiene products and mentoring for rural Tanzanian girls.
ACCF is a proud supporter of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
