Impact Report on The Girls Foundation of Tanzania

Program activities
TGFT supports high­-achieving girls from 8th grade through university with a merit-­based Sponsorship Program. TGFT provides comprehensive support that includes access to relevant non-formal education through our other programs at The Girls Center.



$9,000 pays for a girl living in extreme poverty to graduate from private secondary school.


TGFT collected data on outcomes of participants after the program. To estimate the change attributable to the program, TGFT made an educated guess as to how participants would have fared without the program.

Data source
TGFT conducts an annual student questionnaire, and tracks each girl's grade progression and graduation.

Attribution method
Although some TGFT scholars may have completed government secondary school without TGFT's support (about 17% based on national statistics), TGFT estimates that none of them would have completed private secondary school in the absence of its support.

This report was created by The Girls Foundation of Tanzania with self-reported data using ImpactMatters' impact reporting platform. This report covers January 2015 to November 2018.
