This is Beatrice Joseph. She comes from Musoma, Tanzania, where she’s the third of six children. After finishing primary school in 2014, she traveled to Dar es Salaam, the country’s largest city, where her father passed away two years later, making her an orphan.
In July of 2016, Beatrice enrolled at the Dogodogo Training Centre, where she learned the elements of tailoring: Sewing trousers, skirts, shorts and gowns. In its 27 years of operation, the Centre has facilitated the empowerment of thousands of young women, providing quality educations and vocational training, as well as advocating on behalf of girls whose voices are too often stifled, in Dar es Salaam and in the country. Through education and legal representation, rural women have broader horizons and more options than being a traditional housewife.
