Media Kit: Being A Girl in Tanzania

This week, Michelle Obama will join other First Ladies in Tanzania for a summit focusing on women’s education, health and economic empowerment. It’s a gathering of powerful women in a place where too many young women still lack the power to determine the course of their own futures. Early marriage and childbearing, coupled with a lack of access to contraception, too often take control out of their hands.

But with more than 40% of Tanzania’s population under 15, there’s a huge opportunity to change things for the next generation of Tanzanian women. To help every Tanzanian girl reach her potential, take a look at the reality of what she faces. How would you change this picture?
