About Teach Africa

Teach Africa provides a new and exciting dimension to two books: Dogodogo: Tanzanian Street Children Tell Their Stories and Emusoi: Maasai Girls Tell Their Stories. The books, compiled by Kasia Parham and published by Macmillan, give voice to two groups of exceptional young Africans, who speak directly to the world about what happens to real children when they are denied their basic rights. The young people are supported by two sister-projects in Tanzania: the Dogodogo Centre for Street Children, Dar es Salaam and the Emusoi Centre for Pastoralist Girls, Arusha. Both centres were founded by American Maryknoll nuns, Sister Jean Pruitt and Sister Mary Vertucci.


Our website presents information about the work of the centres – including recent events and developments – contact details, and ways to donate funds and sponsor individuals. It offers practical help on the most effective use of the books as resources for teaching and learning global citizenship in schools. The News Blog page links teachers and students from all the world and provides them with a forum for exchanging ideas and information on crucial development issues which affect everyone.

    Thank you so much for coming to Dominican Academy to speak about the Massai girls. I really appreciated you coming, I think I really learned a lot about the girls. I would love to learn more about them. I am planning on ordering your Maasai book. I would like to thank you and hope to meet you again sometime.
