In 2022 we are raising $300,000 to send 22 students (70% girls) to College and support one rural primary school. Each of the 22 students requires $10,000.00 (total $220,000.00) to cover their tuition, fees, and accommodation for a 3-year academic program.
And the rest of the funds will be used to support one of our primary schools with a student population of 1,200 (55% girls) which has been hit hard by Covid19 leaving the school with no funds to run the school.
And we need your help!
The Strategy to Achieve the Goal To achieve our goal of $300,000.00, we’re inviting 20 individuals to be our Baton Activators. Each Baton Activator will raise $15,000 USD, helping the TTI foundation achieve its goal of sending 22 students to College and helping support one rural school.
In Zimbabwe, due to historical inequities that have shaped the poor, many rural girls are married before the age of 18 and 5% are married before their 15th birthday.
In the rural areas where our Foundation works, child marriage is exacerbated by poverty. Underage girls from the poorest households are more likely to drop out of school than their urban peers because their parents cannot afford to pay school fees, which in turn puts rural girls at a higher risk of marrying young.
Without education, many rural girls marry early just as their mothers and grandmothers did before them, perpetuating the cycle.
And this is why we are asking for your help in our quest to invest in a brighter future for these students.
