Meet Dotto, a CAMFED Association member and Learner Guide from Tanzania. The Learner Guide Program sees young women who have experienced first-hand the barriers to education for girls in marginalized communities – and have received support to go to school – return to their local schools as mentors and role models. They support children in their studies, and in creating a better world for themselves and their communities. Learner Guides deliver a tailored life skills and wellbeing program called ‘My Better World.’ This program was developed with young people in Africa, and has been shown to improve learning outcomes, school retention, and progression. Through the program, Learner Guides themselves develop the confidence, skills and agency they need to secure their own livelihoods, and support their families. They gain access to business training and loans in return for their commitment. As respected role models in schools and communities, and trusted mentors to the children they support, Learner Guides are working to change the status quo for women and girls for good.
