GLK Student Fund (Gayle Lyn Kliever Student Fund)

Scholarship help will be given to those students with ability, motivation and potential. Recipients may be of any age. Priority is given to those with little or no family presence.

Global Giving visits the GLK Student Fund in Tanzania

On June 26th, one of Global Giving's in-the-field represenatives, Kelly Kurz came to visit the GLK Student Fund to meet with trustees, Tanzanian volunteers, and, of course, our students. Hosted by Joyce Lwakatare and Philemon Johannes, Kelly said that "he loved meeting the students." When Kelly arrived, he traveled with Joyce and Philemon to visit KEMPS, the school where Gayle Kliever taught for many years and a school where a number of scholarship students attend.

Kelly also visited another school, KADBEMPS, where one of our scholarship students, Suzan is a primary school student at KADBEMPS. During his visit, Kelly had the opportunity to speak with Suzan and her mother to learn more about her experiences at school.

He also had the opportunity to meet Anagrace, another one of our scholarship students to talk about her schooling and her experience with the GLK Student Fund.

Overall, the visit seems to be positive for all parties. The GLK Student Fund has loved the partnership and support Global Giving has offered us and our students and we look forward to more collaboration in the future!

May 2015 Report

Aristidia and Jackson
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.

February Update

       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."
