Hopeful for the Future!

All of us at Harambee Centre appreciate your continued support for our program in Arusha, Tanzania. Together with our conscientious Tanzanian community leaders, we are privileged to be able to change lives.

The project leader and trainer, Gloria Sandilen, writes:  “Thank you very much to everyone for helping the girls and young women in our community to lead healthy and productive lives.” 

One graduate, Nemburis, is now planning to open a roadside shop.  Nemburis was like many young girls in Arusha when she started the SEW program.  She did not attend secondary school because her family could not afford the tuition and she married at an early age.  After graduating from SEW and receiving a sewing machine, Nemburis began sewing clothes for a few women in her neighborhood.  Today, she is confident about the future and teaching her husband how to sew.  Together they are hopeful for the future and planning to move their sewing business from their home to a shop on the main road in their village. 

Asante sana, from Harambee Centre.

ZoomUganda Matale Lab Project Update Oct 2010

The ZoomUganda St. Andrews Matale Science Laboratory Project work is going well. Our Ugandan partners are working hard to get the remaining pieces into place to have a functional science laboratory. They have also called out to us that they need water harvesting off the laboratory roof. The water harvested will help the lab to get the water supply needed. We are eternally grateful for all the support.

Report Back to GlobalGiving New Science Laboratory

Dear GlobalGiving and Global Giving donors, thank you for giving us the opportunity to continue towards the goal of providing science education to the students of St. Andrews Matale.

All of us at Harambee Centre appreciate your continued support for our program in Uganda. Together with our conscientious Ugandan school and community leaders, we are privileged to be able to change lives.

“We would like to thank you very much for the efforts to make our science study environment more conducive. What was a dream – having a science lab – is now being realized,” wrote the Head teacher.

With recent funding the school purchased many practical items for the physics and chemistry labs.

Because of the science lab, the graduating class of 2009 performed better than any class in the school’s history in science

In 2009, Margret and Prossy, two female students at St. Andrews, wrote on behalf of their class describing the impact of the lab:

“We, as students, have benefited a lot from the science lab. The following are some of the benefits we have gained: - we have got enough exposure to science equipment - we have got more practice and the ability to pass practical papers - we have gained more confidence when writing practical papers - we have got the morale of offering sciences at ‘A’ level - we have got exposure to science teachers

Funds that we will wire next are going to be used to buy specific chemicals and apparatus required for the Uganda National Examinations that will take place in October 2010.

We thank our generous donors for their continued support!”

Asante sana, from Harambee Centre as well.
