In Tanzania, most children attend primary school. However, only 25% attend secondary school. Attending secondary school and gaining qualifications will make a huge difference to children's lives.
In Mwanza, on the shores of Lake Victoria, many people without an education make a living by tending a smallholding or shamba, where families plant crops and keep livestock such as chickens or goats.
It is still common for women to take on the traditional role of looking after the house and home, while men go out to work. Women are also responsible for less physical tasks involved in the growing of crops on their smallholdings. However, this is starting to change and more girls are seeking an education which will offer them more choices about their future.
