Education in Africa: A Way Forward

African News - Education

Dr. Shukuru Kawambwa, MP in Tanzania.

Dipping scores for secondary level students has opened the debate on the state of African education and what needs to be done.  Dr. Shukuru Kawambwa, a member of the Tanzania Parliament, attributes the decline to several factors including shortage of teachers, lack of laboratories, lack of libraries and shortage of books.

For many African leaders there is a belief that quality education is the key to a prosperous tomorrow; the ability to meet current challenges and participate in the global economy depends upon the development of their children into future leaders.

The International Hand Foundation is part of this solution, by providing educational assistance to the youth of Africa.  If you would like to help in this effort, please visit our donation page to make a monetary contribution (internationalhand.org/donate.html), or email us if you’d like to volunteer (info@internationalhand.org).  Thank you!
