First the beginnings: Our university students
Itâ€™s official. Elizabeth, Veronica and Teresia will begin university studies in a few weeks. Veronica and Teresia will start B.A. programs in Education and Language Studies, respectively, at the University of Dar es Salaam, one of Tanzaniaâ€™s most highly regarded colleges. Elizabeth has achieved her ultimate goal: acceptance into a Doctor of Medicine Program at St. Josephâ€™s University, also in Dar.
Each of these young women was cut off from formal education in 2010. Such talent and possibility snuffed out at the age of 13.
Now they will become self-sufficient leaders in their communities and countries. This part of their journey will not be easy as each of these women lack any financial or family resources. EdPowerment, however, will be by their side all the way to provide the support â€“ financial, emotional, psychological and educational â€“ that they will need to celebrate their next graduation and their next beginning â€“ a career.
