Hi everyone, 

 During our school years, we all had to find out what our job would be and our purpose in this life. 

It is a difficult turning point when you have to find a job (which could also not be easy as expected) and decide about your future life. And suddenly, because time passes so fast, this time has almost arrived for our older students in their last school year. 

In Tanzania, as most of you already know, the school year starts in January and ends up in November, so the first quarter is almost at the end. During these next months, our teens who are not going on with their studies at University will choose their future job.

Meanwhile, they are also doing some traineeships and workshops to get closer to the labour market and understand what they would like. We might discover that they need a vocation school or practical experience to find their place in the active society.

It will be a new challenge for us to accompany them into their independent life outside Malaika.
We thank you for your help in giving them the chance to arrive with a good education at this vital turning point, and we hope you will go on helping us also on this occasion.

Thank you for your constant support, 

Malaika's Team

Another year is about to end. It has been a challenging one, for the pandemic that affected the whole world and the poorest economies in particular.

We have been lucky at Malaika for not having anybody affected by the disease, nor among children nor in the staff. Still, the general situation of the area near Malaika has suffered a lot.

For a country that relies on tourism, having registered such a deep business contraction has been a demanding experience.

On the bright side, we feel lucky for being helped by you and other supporters around the world, who permitted all Malaika's disadvantaged children to keep studying, going to school, and building their future life upon your gift.

Thanks to your precious support, our pre-schools kids have finished their first year of school and can already write the alphabet: they are always delighted to go to school where they have great fun.

We wish you a happy holiday season!
Happy New Year!

Some of our kids, especially girls, arrive at Malaika without having entered a school in their previous life.
They had to take care of the house, of younger siblings, or work to help the family budget.

The discovery of school is something that makes them so happy that you cannot even imagine!

Initially, they have to learn English, because we want them to attend high-level school. This seems strange for them because they must attend kindergarten even if they are already 7 or 8 years old. But they learn English quickly and so they can jump into the following classes and then they go fast.

All the primary school children are attending the same school, so they go to school on the same bus in the morning. We are very satisfied with the new school we have chosen because everybody can learn at his own pace and finally in a serene way. 

Thank you for supporting Malaika and offering to kids the possibility to go to school!

Please consider starting to fundraise and ask people you know to become supporters of Malaika: It is easy and you'll gift long life presents to kids who had never been to school.

Best wishes

We are very proud of our Malaika students attending high schools for their commitment to study. However, at this time of the year students do not return to Malaika for an extended period because they have to study for their final exams. 

Instead, we visit them at every parents' meeting day, and we go to their schools occasionally to check if everything is going well.

We took these photos during a recent visit from Europe by Francesco, who is one of the two directors of Malaika. It was a long time that Francesco had not seen them in person because of Covid travel restrictions and has found them grown up.  They are now developing specific interests that will drive their future career: one of them would like to become a  neurosurgeon, and we hope he will reach his goal!

Your help is essential to gift the school to boys and girls at Malaika: with your help, we can guarantee that every kid entering Malaika can attend quality schools and make their dreams come true. Thank you so much.

New monthly donations will have their first donation matched at 100% in this period: please consider starting continuous contributions!

Best wishes

The month of July for Tanzanian children marks the beginning of the last quarter of the school year. These are months of hard work for everyone. Many boys and girls of Malaika attend high schools, so they have returned to their boarding schools; three of the older girls are completing Form5 so that they can choose subjects in preparation for university. 

Primary school children attend daily school and continue to live in Malaika. Anyway, they leave at 6 am and return only after sunset; Malaika is empty during the day, and you miss the dances and songs.

These three youngest children of Malaika in the photo had their first day of baby school in July. Of course, they are very excited, but even we, who have seen them grow day after day and, now see them in uniform, ready for the start of their training, and we are astonished and proud.

Enjoy your education, children! It's the most precious gift you can receive from our sponsors.
We send a warm thank you to our donors who allow Malaika project to go on.

Best regards
