On behalf of the United States Government, thank you all for joining us to launch these training efforts, which mark an important step forward in addressing gender-based violence and supporting safe learning environments.

Gender-based violence remains a grave reality for countless women and youth in Tanzania and around the world, affecting victims regardless of socioeconomic status or background.

When it comes to our children, the threat of violence both inside and outside the classroom challenges every student’s right to a quality education, and by extension, a fair shot at life. For this reason, the United States has been proud to partner with the Government of Tanzania under the Waache Wasome program to make sure no child has to put their dreams on hold due to school- or gender-based violence.

On behalf of the U.S. Government, I am delighted to be here.  I would first like to say “Hongereni sana” to the Minister and his team for the commitment that has resulted in the National Chimpanzee Conservation Action Plan for Tanzania.
