May 2015 Report

Aristidia and Jackson

Dear Donors,

           Thank you so much for your support of our primary students. Ines, AnnaGrace, and Susan are doing very well.  Right now, we are seeking support for two new students, Jackson and Aristidia who tragically lost their fathers in drowning accidents. Jackson and Aristidia are cousins who currently live together with Jackson's mother and another relative - all in just one room. Jackson's mother sells tomatoes to support them, but it is truly a struggle for her.

         Jackson and Arisitida attend a government primary school in Buyekera, Bukoba in rural Tanzania. While public education is officially "free" in Tanzania, the funding for these schools is often inadequate, leaving families to foot the bill for necessities such as composition notebooks, uniforms, school fees, and food.  At this time, Jackson and Arisitida's caretaker is struggling to pay for these school necessities. These young students have already proved that they work hard and succeed even in dire circumstances.  Your support would encourage them and help them be able to continue their studies.

         We ask you to consider making a special donation to help Jackson and Aristidia. 

                                                                                Thank you.

       As we enter the new year, we wanted to take a moment to thank all of our donors who have helped us throughout the year. Your generosity goes directly to AnnaGrace, Ines, and Susan.  Gayle Kliever, our Executive Director will be traveling to Tanzania in the next couple of weeks to visit with our scholarship students and meet new candidates for scholarship support and other programs.   

      The GLK Student Fund supported fifteen primary school students throughout the year of 2014 and we hope to support more in 2015. Fourteen are on full scholarships and one on a partial scholarship.

      Susan, one of our GlobalGiving scholarship students, has been doing well with her studies.  Her mother, her only relative, has been so weak with illness that we decided it was best for Susan to become a boarding student.  She was excited to join her school full-time and wrote a 'thank you' to one of our donors saying:

"Thank you for your kindness to help me with school. I thank you very much and may God continue to bless you very much."

As we approach the year end, we want to thank our donors who have - over the last couple years - provided an education for AnaGrace, Susan and Ines.  Your generous giving has secured their primary school education and given us the hope that a new student will join our GlobalGiving project before 2015.  Because of you, these girls have the chance that they deserve in life and in learning.

The GLK Student Fund would like to take a moment to update you on our scholarship student, Ines, who joined us this year (photo in school uniform above).  She has been doing well in her primary school studies at Kibeta English Medium Primary School (KEMPS). Her dream is to become a Nurse.  Her Teacher, Lucy, says that she is doing well relative to other students and that she will continue on to Standard 2 in January 0f 2015.

Ines expressed her wish to stay at KEMPS as a boarding student instead of day scholar.  She has said that, by staying in boarding she will perform better in a good environment because her home not conducive to study.  We are considering this request and the additional funding it would require. 

Help us support Ines to ensure that she has an environment appropriate for study.  As you plan your year-end giving, we ask you to remember AnaGrace, Susan, Ines and our new candidate.  You can make all the difference in their futures!

Asante sana!  Thank you!
