Africa School Assistance Project
The Africa School Assistance Project (ASAP) is committed to increasing access to quality public education in East Africa, especially for girls.
Education, more than any other sector of development, seeds dramatic improvement in poverty reduction, gender equality, health outcomes, child immunization, HIV/AIDS prevention, environmental protection and wildlife conservation. Simply put, widely available public education will lead to a prosperous, peaceful and sustainable future for Africa.
To date, ASAP has developed seven rural community schools in the Arusha and Mwanza Regions of Tanzania, impacting over 5,000 students annually and they’re getting huge results. 100% primary completion and transition rates to secondary school and the Kupanda Project for Girls has increased secondary completion rates for girls from a shocking 4% to 100%!
