At Emanyata Secondary School, knowledge and practical skills development go hand in hand. As a pastoralist community school, cattle rearing, agriculture and tourism are key income generators alongside teaching and healthcare for those with the confidence know-how and aspiration to succeed. By introducing permaculture as an extracurricular activity (the girls are planting their first fruit trees) alongside traditional agriculture, cattle rearing and beekeeping, Emanyata has shown that it is committed to focus its education on skills that are highly valuable to pastoralist society. Complimented by English and kiSwahili language study, mathematics, science (physics, biology and chemistry) and computer studies Emanyata graduates are now more fully prepared for the challenges of the future, with greater skills to adapt and build resilience to climate change challenges than any pastoralist generation before them.

In an ever-changing environment of climate change, societal norms changing and digitization, the youth of a nation have a lot to contend with. As a community school, created, owned and managed by the community, Emanyata teaches respect for the values of traditional pastoralists while building student’s knowledge and confidence about their environment, society, resources and opportunities. In this mixed gender school, girls are given an equal opportunity to grow and boys and girls are taught to be respectful of one another. Where some curricula subjects, such as science and mathematics, are still considered as the realm of boys, Emanyata has adjusted its teaching style and methods to make them more appealing and accessible to young Maasai women through science clubs and exposure to practical learning. By providing opportunities for girls to engage with science subjects in more practical ways and relating the subjects to their lived experiences, girls have become vocal about what difference a sound understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) could mean to them as future entrepreneurial business owners, engineers and healthcare professionals. #educationforall #equityforall #pastoralwomenscouncil

Within paternalistic pastoralist (Maasai) society some families still prioritise boys over girls, cattle over education and prefer to strengthen familial ties through the early and forced marriage of their daughters to their friends and neighbours. Pastoral Women’s Council and Emanyata Secondary School work within the community to overcome these negative social norms while respecting positive traditional values of community and shared responsibility, for example in our Covid response activities in the community. Through scholarships for girls, advocacy for quality education and by investing in safe school environments we have demonstrated that by educating a girl, a family will benefit with improved health, increased food security and greater resilience to the challenges of the 21st century, while allowing their daughters a chance to imagine their future as a valuable contributor to family and community, to participate in higher and further education and to go on to inspire future generations of girls just like them.

Please join us on this 5-part journey to unravel the unique role of Emanyata Secondary School, a mixed-gender community boarding school for pastoralist society in Tanzania.
Part 1 - Basic education for pastoralist families: Education is a basic human right still denied to many girls in rural indigenous communities like the semi-nomadic pastoralist Maasai of Tanzania. Without education, a girl’s future is likely to be one of toil, hardship and child-birth, with opportunities for self-expression and empowerment denied her by harmful paternalistic cultural norms that see girls as property and forced to undergo female ge***al mutilation (FGM) as a precursor to an early marriage from which few can escape. Pastoral Women's Council (PWC), through its management of Emanyata, works every day to bring families to a greater understanding of the rights of their daughters, and to the long-term transformational benefits to their families. By respecting those rights and allowing their 11- and 12-year-old girls to transition from primary school to secondary school, girls will become equipped with knowledge and skills that will allow them to thrive and fully participate in the development of their community while respecting their culture. #educationforall #equityforall

On this day, we honour the brave actions of the young South African students who protested during the 1976 Soweto Uprising. It also commemorates the 1990 African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child, ratified by nearly 50 AU member states to date.
Agenda 2040: fostering an Africa fit for children was adopted in 2016 to guide the implementation of children's rights in Africa. This year's commemoration of the Day of the African Child calls on us to contemplate if we are making strides towards an Africa fit for children?
Tanzania has made great strides in providing universal education. In 2014, the Government of Tanzania introduced a fee-free education policy, making pre-primary and primary education accessible, waiving all registration and exam fees that parents had to pay in the past and posed a significant financial barrier. The fee-free policy led to a dramatic increase in enrolment in pre- primary and early primary education; however, the influx of students resulted in a skewed teacher-to-pupil ratio in classrooms and inadequate resources.
Tanzania laws and policies provide a protective environment for the prevention and response to violence abuse or exploitation. In 2009, Tanzania passed the Law of the Child Act to provide
for the reform and consolidation of laws relating to children and to give effect to international
conventions on the rights of the child.
PWC contributes to agenda 2040 in our interventions with pastoralists communities which advocate for the right to quality education and the protection of children from abuse and exploitation. We strongly believe that access to quality education helps girls escape from harmful cultural practices, such as early and forced marriages. It gives them, and by extension their families and communities, the hope of a dignified and empowered future. Check out some of the inspiring stories from our science clubs here.
Our TAPALA intervention is a violence prevention and behavioural change intervention being implemented in two districts in northern Tanzania. The activities under TAPALA are designed to engage all community members in open dialogue about violence to challenge harmful social behaviours and norms. Check out highlights from the public performances here.

General information

The Pastoral Women's Council of Tanzania was founded to conceive and implement long-term structural solutions for the poverty and marginalisation of Maasai pastoralist women and children. There is no other organisation in Tanzania that is solely focused on reducing inequalities and promoting justice for Maasai women and children. Today, PWC has approximately 5,000 women members; local, national and international donors; and key partners that help contribute to our many achievements.
