Who We Are


     Hodari Scholars was established in 2007 by dedicated individuals in the San Francisco, California Bay Area, Massachusetts and Tanzania.  We believe strongly that educated girls can not only change their own lives, but they can change their communities and ultimately their nation, for the better.  We have seen first hand that by giving just one girl a secondary education, many have benefited.  

     Hodari board members have traveled to or live in Tanzania, are familiar with the secondary school educational process and have previously worked with other scholarship programs within Tanzania.
