Girls from the Serengeti start vocational training

We're thrilled that Tatu, Dorcas, Lucia and Jacline from the Mugumu Hope Centre secured places on a vocational hospitality training course, and have made their way to Moshi to start their studies! They're pictured here with Mama Ali, the lovely lady who keeps our office fuelled with tea, coffee and smiles - she hosted them on their journey.

All four of the girls faced family pressure to undergo FGM or early marriage, and sought refuge from the Hope Centre, where they were taken in and cared for. Being accepted onto the hospitality course is a huge step, and we can't wait to see the world of opportunities that opens for them.

They'll be studying at More Than a Drop, a superb centre in Moshi that offers certified courses for girls from challenging backgrounds. Go girls!
