Tanzania Allows Learning for Teen Mothers

Tanzania has buckled under pressure from human rights groups and activists as it will now allow thousands of pregnant girls to attend school as part of a U.S.$500 million World Bank loan which had been delayed for years due to the country's ban on expectant students. Pregnant girls will resume formal education as prescribed by the Sequip project which targets to reach more than 6.5 million secondary school students across the country without discrimination, including girls who have dropped out of school for various reasons but especially pregnancy.
