Most of the students at Malaika attend boarding high schools, so they live away from the shelter for many months a year, while younger kids attending preschool and primary school live at home. That's why school holidays become an excellent time for Malaika when all the kids reunite and have a good time together. Last month, in April, they joined for Easter, and it was marvelous to have them all at home!

Often students come home tired after their exams or long periods of hard study, so the relief to be at home is excellent. But the best part is to stay with the rest of the family, telling each other stories about what happened at school and finding the pleasure again to live in a family, as the shelter Malaika is.

While at home, everybody work at home to help the family with a specific task: cleaning, cooking, helping with babies, explaining to others some difficult subject they had not understood well at school... And there is also time to relax and play together, before coming back to school and study hard again.

We are proud to have boys and girls at school committed to their studies, wishing to get good results and putting the basis for their future life.

Help us to give these students the future they hope, and they deserve. Support them in their studies through Malaika Guardians project!

A new schoolyear has begun on January 2019 and we are proud that the kids at Malaika are now in upper class, having all passed their class last year: 12 students are attending secondary school, 6 are attending primary, 6 are in preschool, and 1 is attending a special school.

Thanks for your generous commitment in 2018 and for supporting the children at Malaika through this school year: Malaika Guardians 2018  has almost been completely funded!

Please note that we have started a new project Malaika Guardians 2019 for the new school year and hope you will continue to make the gift of education to the children of Malaika also for 2019. You can help the kids with a quality education by ensuring school fees, or uniforms, or books.

Please go to the new project and activate a monthly donation to Malaika Guardian for 2019!

"Graduation" at primary school 2018
"Graduation" at primary school 2018

Two weeks remain until the end of the academic school year in Tanzania. It has gone so quickly and the children have worked extremely hard.

We are proud to share that 100% of our boys and girls passed their compulsory primary school leaving exams and are now ready to begin high school in January.

The traditional leaving primary ceremonies have been wonderful moments for each student to celebrate their achievements. It has also been an emotional time saying farewell to their teachers and school friends. To mark the transition a special party at Malaika was organised for all the children to spend time together and have fun. In addition, we visited one of the students, who is living far away after being reunited with her family, to congratulate and enrol her in a nearby high school. See photos!

As we look ahead to 2019, 12 students will be in high school, six pupils in primary school and five younger ones in kindergarten. Pre-school learning is such an important and exciting time for infants. When toddlers arrive at Malaika, they can only speak Kiswahili. As soon as children enter pre-school they begin to learn English, and grow in so many ways too, giving them a head start in their education.

Our aim at Malaika is to give to everyone the chance to develop their interests and skills through a quality education, helping them to reach their full potential.

Thank you for generous commitment in 2018 and supporting the children at Malaika through the school year!

We have started a new project for the 2019 school year and hope you will continue to make the gift of education this year

All children in Tanzania returned to school in August following the summer holidays. Seven of the youngsters at Malaika – three girls and four boys – are especially excited about what lies ahead in the coming months.

 They are each studying hard to pass the compulsory primary school leaving exams at the end of the year, an important step towards their future. Upon completion, they will be ready to begin high school in January!

 Tanzania has one of the world’s youngest populations, with 43% under the age of 15. Moreover, more than 40% of Tanzania’s adolescents are left out of quality lower-secondary school. At Malaika we are proud that 100% of children have passed the 11+ exam and remain in school. We hope this will continue.

 The traditional graduation ceremony is an occasion that everyone at Malaika is looking forward to, as seen from the photos below. Each year, we take a select group of younger children from Malaika to celebrate and have fun with the older ones.

By January 2019, almost half of the children in our care will be attending high school. Our aim at Malaika is to give to everyone the chance to develop their interests and skills through a quality education. In the long term, this includes progressing to University, for those who want to continue their studies, and giving everybody the opportunity to get a good job, be independent and self-satisfied.

Thank you for helping us to ensure all children at Malaika can continue with their education this year!

Welcoming a new friend at school
Welcoming a new friend at school

Young girls in poor societies are often the pillars of their home: they take care of younger brothers and sisters, of the home, and of sick parents. The result is that some girls who arrive to Malaika, especially those from rural areas have never entered a school.

Grace, aged seven, is one of the newest members of the Malaika family. Before arriving, in May, she was the main carer for her six month old brother, Samuel.

To receive the gift education is bringing Grace much happiness. However, it also means new experiences such as sitting in a classroom, learning English for the first time and reading books. These are some of the reasons that it is advantageous to offer children who come into our care at Malaika the opportunity to attend nearby boarding schools. We have found that those who live and learn in this environment:

  • Immerse themselves more quickly into the school system;
  • Focus and concentrate greater on new tasks and subjects;
  • Build meaningful friendships and seek the support of older girls who have similar experiences; and
  • Finally live their childhood after being exonerated of responsibility of caring for siblings and others.

Thank you for helping to give the gift of school to Grace and other children who are arriving to Malaika!
