Second Chance Education for Young Mothers in Tanzania

In Tanzania, adolescent girls who have dropped out of school because of pregnancy face a severe challenge to re-enter the public education system, leading them to be permanently excluded from formal education. Partner of the past week has been Karibu Tanzania Organization. ‘KTO’ is a national level Non-Governmental Organization working as an umbrella organization for the 55 Folk Development Colleges (‘FDCs’) in Tanzania. Aflatoun International and KTO with support from Mastercard Foundation work with Tanzanian Folk Development Colleges to provide accredited secondary education for out-of-school young mothers to support their transition to higher education and life after school.
