In rural Tanzania, education for girls is considered by many families to be an unaffordable luxury. Young women are expected to marry, raise children, keep a home, and work in the fields. At the Murigha Community School for Girls, founded by Maryknoll Sister Darlene Jacobs, a quiet revolution is taking place. Students learn practical skills and attitudes that transform them into independent, self-confident women. The institution also serves the Msange community and supplements tuition income with student produced eggs, milk, and crops.
