Moving Forward in Tough Times

Meet Ooko, He was born In 1998 in Mara region. He is an Independent study beneficiary currently in Advance level expected to sit for his final examination soon. His academic dream came to life in 2017 when he found out about Jifundishe from his step brother who was a student at the University of Arusha. In 2018 he was officially selected to join the Independent study program as an Ordinary level student among 45 students Ooko was one of them. He was happy to receive Jifundishe Free Library services such as books, studying space, and learning support from our volunteer teachers.

He sat for his O’level examination and successfully passed with good grades that enabled him to join advance level in 2019, “Still Jifundishe did not stop supporting me says, Ooko”. 

Ooko said,” At the beginning of 2020 the world faced a great pandemic which will never be forgotten in mankind history, the CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC. This disease affected all aspect of my life, education sector included. However, JFL did not stop its support to us during this difficult time of COVID-19. We were provided with books and other learning materials to use at home when all schools were closed including Jifundishe since the facility accumulates a number of students. Thus, JFL did not stop developing our academic status as we were to study at home”.

Upon the government instructions on the opening of advance level schools and universities Ooko was overwhelmed to return to Jifundishe in order to prepare for his final examination which will begin in June 2020 and complete on early July 2020. Jifundishe has its unique way of touching our lives and ensuring safety so the necessary precautions were taken providing protective equipment’s like masks, soaps, sanitizers and clean water to wash hands.

Through the support that Ooko has received from Jifundishe, he believes that he is going to pass his final exams and join university to accomplish his dream of becoming a Lawyer. He finishes with few words saying “God bless Jifundishe for making my dreams light again”.
