In Northern Tanzania, living in a patriarchal society, women have limited opportunities for employment and very few rights. The annual income for families in Tanzania is $280.00 – the cost for one girl to go to secondary school is $250.00. This barely leaves enough money for basic food and shelter needs. Girls who do not go to school are married off to older men by their fathers and begin child bearing immediately. (Project TEMBO, 2010)
To educate the public about the inequality and poverty in Northern Tanzania To raise awareness of the organization Project TEMBO To raise as much money as possible for educational opportunities through Project TEMBO To gain experience in community service To learn how to put others’ needs before our own

We discussed which fundraising events and activities we would implement 4. We partnered with Lorie’s Field Preparation Class and held joint meetings to discuss our joint events 5.
