Girls Education Collaborative

The Buffalo-based nonprofit Girls Education Collaborative is launching a new fundraising effort for its partner school in Kitenga Village, Tanzania. The group hopes to raise $130,000 to build a new guest house at the school, where volunteer or medical groups from Western New York and beyond could stay while visiting the Kitenga Secondary School for Girls.
