Lake Eyasi Girls
Training Centre is dedicated to improving the lives of marginalized
youth mothers and their child through girls’ vocational training
in Lake Eyasi region of Northern Tanzania. The organization was
created in 2010 to provide support and a life of opportunity for
youth mothers and their children in Lake Eyasi.
Currently we have 53 girls who are attending tailoring training
for school uniforms and knitting school sweaters for primary and
secondary school at the centre. These girls also receive far more
than food, clothing, and shelter.
Provided that Lake Eyasi Girls is our main concern, we recognize
that the most effective ways to improve outcomes for youth mothers
and their kids is to educate the community in which they live.
Our main focusing to these youth mothers of Lake Eyasi in
Community Health Education
Health education has started in the primary and secondary schools
as a community outreach program, educating men and women about different
forms of family planning, abuse, and disease.
Youth Mothers Living with Relatives Program
We provide food, clothing, and opportunity to at risk children in
the region who live with their relatives.
The centre organizes medical care for pregnant girls, mothers and
children by taking normal route of attending to the clinic. Most
of these girls were not attending clinic due to lack of awareness
of the importance of getting medical checkup when pregnant.
We strive to understand and meet the evolving needs of the community
in which the centre operate.
