Two of our exemplary GlobalGiving students, Susan and Eveline, went on an unforgettable trip with their classmates to the Serengeti National Park. While many students in Tanzania live relatively close to one of its sixteen national parks, few actually have the resources to take advantage of visiting them.  The Serengeti's western border is approximately one to two day's travel by bus from Bukoba.

The school that Susan and Eveline attend, Karume Day and Boarding English Medium Primary School, Bukoba, organized a trip. The GLK Student Fund paid the extra fee for the trip ($85 each) and sent the girls on this trip of a lifetime to the Serengeti. They made the long journey with their classmates and teachers on a school bus. On the trip, they not only got to see the park and its magnificient wildlife and scenery, but also enjoyed some of the local sites along the way as well.

Because of your generosity, these two young women were able to attend a respected school that had the capability of showing them some of their countries greatest highlights. This is an experience that we feel all Tanzanian students should have.  Thank you for supporting our GlobalGiving students in their quest for an education and a bright future.

Aivan
Aivan
Aivan is one of our newest scholarship students. He came to us through Trustee Grace  Kashegwe, who is the director of nursing at Bunazi Health Clinic, an important health center for the area between Bukoba (Lake Victoria) and the Ugandan border. She introduced us to the son of one of her former colleagues....someone she respected and appreciated over the years.
Traditionally, in Tanzania, health care workers were able to be hired even if the worker wasn't fully qualified. However, since the new Tanzanian President Magafuli has taken office, one of his goals is trying to make sure that every government employee is fully qualified. While this is a noble goal which corrects a long history of hiring those without the proper qualifications, this has also resulting in the firing of many employees who are technically under-qualified, but who developed experience while on the job. One person fitting this description is Aivan's mother. She has spent years serving the Bunazi community ably, but without an official qualification.  As of the year-end 2017, she, along with many health assistants lost their jobs. She moved back to her family farm in Karagwe, and will not be able to support Aivan in a good school.

Aivan's ability and intelligence is so evident that GLK decided to make an emergency payment at the end of 2017.  And we have committed to supporting him through elementary school.  He seems to be at the top of his class and deserves our support.  He had a straight 'A' average in class one (first grade) with the exception of a 'B' in French. Please help us support Aivan and his family while the figure out their next steps.

Asante from the GLK Student Fund and from Aivan

Aidan and Raymondo
Aidan and Raymondo

The GLK Student Fund would like to introduce two of it's newest scholarship students, Aidan and Raymondo who began pre-school at New Vision primary school this past June. These two students are the younger twin brothers of current GLK Scholarship student, Kelvin. The boys live with their father in a particularly remote region with few resources.The father of the boys, Paulo has been struggling to provide for all of his children. Largely uneducated himself, Paulo relies on odd jobs to support his family including caretaking for others' property, farming, and nearly anything that needs to be done.

Unfortunately, the boys' mother passed away when Aidan and Raymondo were two years old making Paulo's money from odd jobs the only source of income for the family. The GLK Student Fund would like to provide for Aidan and Raymondo's education as they move through primary school. With past GlobalGiving donations, we feel confident we can support the first few years of primary school, but we are looking to ensure that we can fully commit throughout their entire primary schooling.

Please help us support this family during the holiday season and give these students the powerful gift of education.

Happy Holidays,

The GLK Trustees, Staff, and Volunteers

We (Jessica and Gayle of the GLK Student Fund) recently visited the GLK Student Fund students and trustees in Bukoba,Tanzania. During this time, we visited students at 11 different schools, including several of those supported through our GlobalGiving campaigns.

Annagrace: Annagrace was the first student we supported through our first GlobalGiving Campaign four years ago. Four years ago, Annagrace was living in a dangerous situation and unstable home. Through the help our GlobalGiving donors, we were able to place her in Kibeta English Medium Primary School (KEMPS). Since graduating from, KEMPS, Annagrace has been flourishing in her students at Hekima Girls Boarding School. During our trip, we visited with Annagrace to see how she was doing. She reports that she's doing well in school (and her reports support this), and is enjoying her time at secondary school. We also met with Annagrace's headteacher and one of her teachers who had nothing but positive things to report.

Ines: We met with Ines and also with her mother while on our trip. We stopped by her mother's kiosk to purchase up some shoes' for students. She reported that Ines is doing well at KEMPS. We had the opportunity to catch up with Ines in her classroom and later at the school graduation ceremony.  She is doing well as she prepares for the standard four national exams.

Susan and Eveline: We had the pleasant experience of watching Susan and Eveline during dance practice for the school's graduation ceremony at Karume Day and Boarding English Medium Primary School. They seemed very happy, healthy, and to be doing well in studies and in having fun with fellow students.  Their headmaster gave glowing reports.

During this visit, we were unable to visit Cynthia, Sara, Aidanius and Raymond as they attend school in a different region than the one we visited. However, our trustees report they are doing well.

We were so excited to see our students in person and see them happy, and thriving in their studies. Thank you all for your continuing support of our project.

Sara and Cynthia
Sara and Cynthia

The GLK Student Fund is excited to announce its two latest GlobalGiving primary students, Sara and Cynthia. These two bright twin girls are began pre-school in January of this year. Unfortunately, for their family, this was not possible without outside help. These girls lost their father shortly after they were born. Their mother, who only has a primary school education, cares for them by doing piece work, which while that provides them a small room Nkwenda, does not allow for many other expenses.

The GLK Student Fund is looking to support these students through preschool and with your help, for this year and for the remainder of their academic careers. They are attending an English Medium Primary school close to where the twins live. It provides a safe place for the girls to learn and play while their mother earns a living.

In April, their mother reported that the twins are doing well in school: reciting school phrases at home, counting up to 40, and singing the alphabet.  Their mother is very excited about their progress.

Please help us support these students!
