Operating through our own Tanzanian NGO as of March, EdPowerment has charted new paths to bring educational opportunities to young people, who had given up hope of ever achieving their potential. Forging trustworthy relationships with community development and educational authorities in some of the poorest outlying villages from Moshi, we are building new scholarship programs and support services for deserving but neglected youth.
As of this November, EdPowerment's college and university enrollment reached 23! including three new talented women, who can now continue college studies in business and pharmaceutical sciences and a university degree in mathematics and statistics respectively. It is unimaginable that without our support, these individuals would have been left behind. They represent the impact of our relaunched "Discovery" Scholarship Program.
And just in the past few weeks, we have begun to work with a young man, Joshua, whom we expect to begin a Certificate and then Diploma in Agricultural Studies next year. In order to make up for his time out of school and the deficits of his local government school, we are structuring a new transitional pilot skills program in English and Computer Training - vital to his upcoming success.
We are excited about the direction and focus of EdPowerment's educational initiatives. As we end 2021, we will be taking new ideas, connections and avenues into the new year that fulfill our mission to intervene for those who otherwise could not pursue their educational and life's goals simply because of their circumstances.
Year End 2020
