Poverty shatters the dreams of many girls in the Tanzania

Posted October 2, 2020 from Tanzania

Society often says that a girl who became pregnant, raped or had a bad experience in her life is often rushed to say that she did not listen to the instructions of the guardians or parents.

many blame blame on girls, many parents evict their children from home by getting pregnant at home many say she has embarrassed her family.

Many look at shame without thinking about whether they were responsible for the upbringing of this girl as it deserves.This week with the women voice initiative group met the girls of the Kidodoma  ordinary level secondary school ,the school is 30 km from the city.

is a school that does not have a hostel students walk long distances to and from school,Many parents rent rooms for their children but fail to provide for other human needs such as food and sanitation.The debate was too long and they said they wanted to live their dreams and suggested the importance of a parent / guardian to participate fully in the whole issue of upbringing.

they rejoiced at our arrival and let out a smile

Hello Valem,
I could not help but think that every pair of eyes is so full of hope. It is sad when parents cannot fully provide for their children much as they may want to.
How good of you to come and encourage these girls and listen to their concerns. Good on you for showing them that they are valued, that they matter. That is an inspiration to young girls and they won't forget it.
Keep lifting girls up:)

Dear sister Nini
Our advice and possible solution means a lot apart of financial support

Hello sister Valem,
The society is always judgmental when it comes to issues of girls and too much blames for survivors, like why did you put on this type of dress? why do you move at night? It was you who contributed to your rape such are blames we survivors always get from friends, law makers, and even our parents, Every one has right to education in order to have bright future so the girls are right to say they want to stay in the hostiles due to the long distance and walking everyday to school.

Thank you for the good story Valem.
Warmly,
Veronica.

Dear Valem,
Thank you very much for sharing your story. It is very sad that society blames victims instead of coming to their rescue.
I am glad that you are part of the Women's Voice Initiative and I have not doubt that through your work, young girls in your community will get the support that they need to in order to avoid or to cope with their situations. Very good work. Please keep it up.
