- The President of United Republic of Tanzania
Tanzanian president John Magufuli has said that under his presidency schoolgirls who become mothers will not be allowed to go back to school after giving birth.
In Tanzania, at least 8,000 girls drop out of school every year due to pregnancy, according to a Human Rights Watch Report.
We are asking you to sign this petition to request the president to reconsider his decision to deny young mothers a second chance at being educated.
We, the undersigned, call on the President John Pombe Magufuli to allow schoolgirls who become mothers to go back to school after giving birth.
