Forward Step Organization is a grass-roots not-for-profit, non-governmental organization in the town of Bagamoyo, at the coastline of Tanzania in East Africa, built from passionate individuals working hard for a brighter future of girls and women in the community of Bagamoyo and beyond.
(Faudhia, one of the founders of FSO, teaching some girls. We're proud of our very green place.)
Through our Learning and Arts Center, we support women and girls with english and maths tuitions, crafting and skill development workshops as well as outreach projects, focusing on education, art, health and hygiene and entrepreneurship.
NOW WE ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING THIS FLOURISHING PLACE!
In Tanzania, it is common that the rent is to be payed yearly in advance and unfortunately, we cannot get an exemption by our landlord. For our Center, this is a sum of 4.2 Million TSH (about 1600€*), deadline is the 17thof October 2018.
Due to several emergencies and hardships of the girls and very few financial supporters during this year, the FSO does not have enough money to pay the rent.
Our whole team works voluntary and unpaid, with a lot of passion, and is eager to keep on supporting the girls who need it the most. So please support us in our ambition and help us to raise the money for the rent, so we can keep our Center and keep on empowering girls and women in our region!
Every little helps, and remember, even if you cannot give, PLEASE FORWARD to your friends and family, so it might reach the right persons to succeed.
To learn more about the FSO and our work, please visit our website and follow us on facebook and Instagram @fso.coast and don’t hesitate to send us your questions, if you have any concerns!
Thank you so much for supporting us!
*We set the fundraising goal to 1750€ because of transaction fees and fluctuating exchange rate.
