In Tanzania, women work for low wages, mainly in agriculture and sewing.

The dropout rate for female students in Tanzania is about 1.6 times that of male students.

Only 17.4% of women have social decision-making power.

E3Empower supports women's self-reliance through three types of ICT education:

Arusha Girls' High School ICT Education
Out of school computer classroom
Empowerment of female youth

Support for the empowerment of female youth self-reliance


In Tanzania, it is difficult to educate girls due to the cultural prejudice

that women should only do housework at home and the influence of the Muslim religion.

Among them, especially mathematics, science, and ICT subjects are considered to be men's fields, and women are experiencing a lot of discrimination in education and employment.

E3empower supports empowerment of young women in Tanzania as follows.

Academic and career counseling for out-of-school girls
​Gender equality education
Female Leader Mentoring

I like drawing, and it was really fun to be able to draw various pictures with a computer in the computer class!

I was able to build up a lot of ICT knowledge through computer classes! Even when I grow up, I want to work with Excel!

For me who wants to be an engineer, this computer class is a very valuable experience! Based on this experience, I really want to make my dream come true!

In this day and age when CT is so important, I'm so lucky to be able to take a computer class! The range of jobs to choose from has widened.
