Project Description 

Daring Girls is a nonprofit organization incorporated in the U.S. Only 33% of Tanzanian girls go to secondary school, and only 2.5% are lucky enough to continue to tertiary education. Daring Girls works to improve the standing of women in society through robust, locally-led mentorship initiatives that cultivate confidence, improve academic and health outcomes, and promote socially-responsible leadership skills. In close partnership with their locally-led sister organization, GLAMI (Girls Livelihood and Mentorship Initiative), Daring Girls supports mentorship opportunities that help secondary school girls in Tanzania complete their education and design their own futures.

The four-year Binti Shupavu program for girls in lower secondary school (ages 13-18) teaches study skills, personal leadership, health, and self-confidence with the goal of increasing graduation rates among vulnerable girls. The two-year Kisa Project is a leadership course that prepares young women in their last two years of secondary school (ages 17-21) to attend university and create positive social change in their communities.
