Shukuru helps girls invest in their own education.

High school is the road less traveled for a girl in Africa.

New Year. Big News.

Well, it’s nearly a new year but we couldn’t wait to share our exciting scoop!

Shukuru has been hard at work and is preparing to launch a revolutionary pilot program that will help disadvantaged girls in Tanzania to earn and save money to pay for their secondary schooling.

We’re thrilled to be gearing up for our June 2012 launch and are inviting you to join this amazing journey with us. Your generous support will help us reach our fundraising seed goal of $70,000.

Donations up to $15,000 received through December 31, 2011 will be matched by a generous donor! Your gift today will go twice as far with our matching opportunity.

Our comprehensive microsavings program gives girls the opportunity to control their own future while teaching self-reliance and helping them afford to stay in school.

Everything is in place and the only piece missing is the funding to get us there. Please join Shukuru in its aim for girls to spark a cultural transformation from dependency to self-sufficiency, rising up to own their power. Donate today!
