Women teachers in Manyoni town started this group so that they can help girls from poor homes to start secondary school and avoid dropping out because of poverty. 20 girls have been helped in 2019-20 with uniforms, books, washable sanitary pads and in some case solar lights and bicycles, if they live far from school.  TDT provided a grant of £1,906 and the women have also done some fundraising themselves by selling cooking oil. None of these girls has dropped out of school.
