Kisa means “story” in Swahili. Through the Kisa Project, young Tanzanian women are empowered to become the creative authors of their own future stories.
By sponsoring a Scholar, you will have an opportunity to receive update letters from your amazing Scholar and share your own story with her. Empowering a girl to become a leader impacts her family, her community, and, ultimately, her society.
