Youth Education in Africa

Scholarships

Scholarships and Mentorship Programs

The ACCF supports African youth education initiatives run by the Grumeti Fund (GF) in Tanzania. These initiatives focus on providing educational scholarships and mentorship programs to local youth. Specific vocational studies within conservation and tourism sectors are key, and students are further supported by being paired with mentors from GF to develop the life skills required for employment in the sector. Internship opportunities within the organization are made available so that youth can progress their careers after completing their studies.

English Immersion Camps

English Immersion Camps

A key factor in hindering many students’ ability to achieve academic success in the Tanzanian schooling system is the sudden transition from Swahili to English between primary and secondary school.  This large shift often sees youth struggling to keep up with their new English curriculum.  To bridge this gap GF has partnered with Concordia Language Villages to develop language camps aimed at enhancing English skills amongst primary school children through annual camp sessions.  These camps take place over the month of June while schools are on break.  In just two years the program has hosted over 200 students from the local communities. At camp the kids learn through fun, engaging language lessons, crafts, singing and dancing, the students are able to practice and improve their grasp of the English language.
