Education is a key component to improving the lives of adolescents and women in Tanzania. Access to reproductive health services can keep adolescents in school and help them thrive.

We believe that providing life-skill development trainings, providing a space for adolescents to engage in various activities, and skill workshops for the entire community will not only keep adolescents in school, but will raise the collective education level of the community.

What we do

Thrive Afya Community Center

Our community center is designed to be a space where adolescents can not only seek adolescent-friendly health services, but build life skills and focus on their studies. Adolescents can receive tutoring, work together on school projects, engage in after-school activities, and receive health education.

Keeping girls in school

Through our dada’s groups in secondary schools and our reproductive health work, we focus on keeping girls in school by providing them with the resources and information to do so. We seek to help girls not only stay in school but thrive through our leadership trainings and community engagement activities.

Vocational and Life Skill Education

We provide education for community members at all ages to improve vocational skills, learn new skills, and engage in life skill development. We believe in investing in the community and our workshops and trainings seek to raise the education level of the community collectively.
