Remarks by Former President of the United Republic of Tanzania, H.E Jakaya Kikwete
June 16, 2016 Binti Foundation

“To sponsor a child living in a challenged environment to attend school without failure is a noble thing to do… free education is not enough for a child living in a challenged environment, there are other costs associated with sending children to school. The cost of menstrual products for girls, school uniforms, shoes and other essential school supplies can be too much to bear for a family living in poverty. Lack of these items can affect negatively on the academic performance of a child in class.”

H.E Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete,
Former President of the United Republic of Tanzania; remarks at the Closing Session, ‘Sponsor a Child to Learn walk – in Dar es Salaam’ to mark the day of the African Child, June 2016
