Each One, Teach One is a Wassmuth Center donor-funded program pairing a sponsor with a village girl to fund the school fees and living expenses necessary to complete high school. Research substantiates that the completion of secondary education not only improves a young lady’s opportunity and ability to support herself, but also improves the prospects for her children – and therefore, improves the village.
Participating students are high ability, low opportunity girls living in the villages surrounding Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique. Gorongosa National Park is perhaps Africa’s greatest wildlife restoration story. In 2008, the Government of Mozambique and the Carr Foundation (Gorongosa Restoration Project), a US nonprofit organization, signed a 20-year Public-Private Partnership for the joint management of the Park. On June 7, 2018, the Government of Mozambique signed an extension of the joint management agreement of Gorongosa National Park for another 25 years.
By adopting a 21st Century conservation model of balancing the needs of wildlife and people, the Gorongosa Restoration Project is protecting and saving this beautiful wilderness, returning it to its rightful place as one of Africa’s greatest parks.
