In brief

The SOL Foundation assists YES! Tanzania with the implementation of their Youth Empowerment through Sport programme in conjunction with further local partners, all committed to a youth development through sport approach and engaged to provide safe spaces with trained sports coaches and leaders who empower the young people they support.

Problem to be tackled

The primary aim of this project is to increase the number of participating girls living in the most disadvantaged areas of Arusha who successfully complete their secondary school education.

Education ends for many children after primary school; only three out of five Tanzanian adolescents, or 52% of the eligible school population, are enrolled in lower-secondary education and less complete secondary education. Less than a third of girls that enter lower-secondary school graduate.
