Happy New year!
It is our hope that you started the New Year well and we pray that God will continue to strengthen you, bless you and give you good health.
We started our new year well and with good news! You have all made us proud as we received all the good news because of you. Last year we had 17 children who did their national exams and their results were announced on the New Year’s Eve. All our children passed the exam and we didn’t have any child who was below average. We are position 0ne in our division which has 27 schools and position 7 in the district which has 122 schools. This was just unbelievable!
One thing is that we couldn’t have achieved all these without you, all is because of you, your support, commitment, encouragement and sacrifice. You have given our children a good environment for learning and you have made them stay at school without any disturbance of lack of anything. They don’t go hungry while at school and this has given us the good results that we have now. This is showing a good future for these children and a change in the community.
The other good news is the Head of State Commendation award! I was overwhelmed with joy when I received a call and I was told that I have been a warded the Head of State Commendation. I can say that I have just been given this award on your behalf, without you I don’t think I could have been given this award. You have made Tumaini what it is, so much has changed in the lives of the children and the community members. This has brought us to this recognition and we have been awarded. On your behalf I received a certificate and a silver medal, thank you so much for everything, I have no words to express the joy.
Our children who did their exams in 2012 are continuing with their education well, they came for the holidays and they did well in their tests, they are now in 10th grade. This year we have 17 who will be joining high school in February which is next month. High school fee is high and this is the most challenging point in the life of the children who are needy. Most of them never get this opportunity despite their good performance. This the most dangerous stage in the lives of these children, if they won’t be able to join high school then it will be the end of their good future.
We know with your assistance these children will be able to join high school and those who are already in high school will be able to continue. Sharing about us with friends, with friends, relatives, and encouraging friends to share with their friends will expand our family and support to enable us pay high school fees for these children. Through the expansion of our support family and also participating in the global giving matching promotion I believe we will be able to meet the needs.
Thank you once again for all your efforts, sacrifices and commitment towards Tumaini family. Please feel free to ask any questions and in case you need more details on anything do not hesitate to write back to us. We love you and we are proud of you, thank you for being part of this family
