Dear Project Wezesha Supporters,

We hope you are staying healthy and finding time in the comfort and company of loved ones. As we passed the one-year mark of the beginning of the global pandemic, we found ourselves reflecting on all that we have to be grateful for. First of all, Project Wezesha students and staff, as well as their families and teachers are all healthy and safe. Secondly, the students in our program are each excelling at everything they put their minds to! In this report, we’ll share some of the highlights.

We’d also like to take a moment to express our solidarity with the citizens of Tanzania who recently laid their President to rest. President John Magafuli passed away on March 17th. His Vice President, Samia Suluhu Hassan was sworn in on March 19th as the country’s first woman President. We wish her much strength as she leads her country through the healing process and this transition of power. We hope that the best interests of the people of Tanzania will guide the public health decisions made by her administration moving forward.

Celebrating our Students

We couldn’t be more proud of Tumsifu – one of our first Project Wezesha scholarship students. With your support, we have funded Tumsifu’s studies through secondary and high school and most recently through University. He graduated with a medical degree as a clinical officer, which allows him to practice medicine in Tanzania.  He graduated with a GPA of 3.5 and was ranked at the top of his class. After spending a short time at home to visit his family in Kigoma, he secured a job at the Primary Health Care Institute in Tabora. He is earning a nice salary and is delighted to be helping patients in the community. (See attached picture of him in his office.)

Another one of our recent graduates, Mahamudu from Mgaraganza village, recently earned his diploma in pharmaceutical studies from the Royal Training Institute in Dar es Salaam. He graduated with a GPA of 3.2 and was also ranked in the top of his class. He is currently working in his uncle’s duka la dawa (pharmacy) in Dar es Salaam.  

One of our current university students, George from Bubango village is studying disaster management at the University of Dodoma. He currently has a GPA of 3.8, which is stellar! Courses from his studies include Risk & Disaster Management, Climatology, Introduction to Information Technology, Theories of Management of Risk and Crisis, Poverty and Livelihood, Environmental Conservation Education, and so many other fascinating & relevant courses that will open many doors to employment when he graduates.   

Simoni, another university student from Mgarganza village is pursuing a medical degree in surgery at the University of Dodoma. He is doing really well in his studies with mostly As and Bs in challenging courses. Among the courses he’s taken in his first two semesters are Medical Biochemistry, Human Anatomy, Medical Sociology, Human Nutrition, Nursing Ethics, Embryology and Human Development, and more.

In a recent conversation with Lucas, Simoni said, “When I get a job as a doctor in a hospital, whether government or private, I will allow 10% of my salary to go directly to Project Wezesha each month.” Lucas asked, “Are you serious, Simoni? This is a big promise.” Simoni replied, “Yes, I am very serious. I want to extend my thanks to Project Wezesha for helping me to meet my dream so the money will go to help others like me. It is necessary.” (See pictures of Simoni at university.)

We are truly grateful to these young men for all they have shown us through their dedication and gratitude. We are the ones who feel blessed – to be able to support such wonderful young men who have ambitions to help others and pay it forward.

To you, Project Wezesha donors - Thank you for your support over many years. Without you, none of this would have been possible! Lucas and I founded Project Wezesha in 2009. We never imagined that we would come so far and have so many success stories to share – well, maybe Lucas did! He leads with his heart, his faith, and his smile and never questions what is possible!

We invite you to share these updates with your friends and family. If you’d like to contribute today to support the next cohort of university students, please click “Give Now” in this report. We cannot do this without you.

With gratitude,

This has been quite a year. You might call it a doozy. But at Project Wezesha, we have some wonderful reasons to celebrate before we bid 2020 farewell. 

Our First University Cohort Graduates 

First, we are so proud of Dibeit, Tumsifu and Saidi who have all graduated from university! Dibeit and Tumsifu recently enjoyed their graduation ceremonies. It brought us a lot of joy to see Dibeit in his cap and gown, beaming with his classmates. We’re looking forward to finding out where he finds a job with his new higher ed degree! 

Toward completion of his degree in Accounting and Finance, Saidi wrote a research paper entitled “The contribution of the budgeting process in achieving organizational goals.” In a What’s App message to Rai, he explained his post-university plans, which center on supporting Tanzanians like his parents who are subsistence farmers with minimal financial literacy. 

Saidi wrote, “I will be providing an education about how to save money in the bank, through opening an account. Most, if not all villagers, after harvesting and selling their crops, save their money in their houses. Also, I will provide financial accounting education. Not only that but also I will provide economic education about diversification of the economy, and share ideas with the farmers and peasants about how to improve their economy through agriculture and domestication of animals.”

We'll share pictures of Saidi and Tumsifu's graduation ceremonies soon!

The Next Generation of University Students

Our second cohort of university students - Ezra, George, and Simoni - have all returned to start their second year of university studies. 

Our third cohort of students pursuing post-secondary education have also reported to their colleges. We added Muhsini, the cousin of Saidi who comes from Kiganza Village. We have known Muhsini since he was a young boy. His parents supported him through secondary and high school, and now we are happy to step in and offer our support.

In addition, Sospeter (The General) and Anzaruni are attending Sumbawanga Clinical Officers Training Center in Dodoma. They are each pursuing a 3-year diploma in clinical medicine. Felisiano is pursuing a 3-year degree in Business Management in Dodoma. We expect great things from each of them and know they are up for the challenge.

We are so grateful for the generous support of two donors, husband and wife team Firoz and Shamim, who have committed to covering the educational expenses for Sospeter, Anzaruni and Felisiano until they graduate. We made this short video - Donors Make Dreams Come True - which shows these young men extending their gratitude to Firoz and Shamim. The young men’s parents were overjoyed as well. They are so proud of their sons and know they will make their families and communities proud.

We are also proud to report that the following young men have completed Form 5 and will begin Form 6 next year. It looks like we’ll have our fourth cohort of university students before we know it: Congratulations to Mayani, Hamisi, Lameck, Malick, and Yohana.

Amahoro Secondary School Makes Top Ten in School Rankings!

In 2015 the Ministry of Education, the regional commissioner and the local leadership of Mgaraganza Village opened Amahoro Secondary School, which Project Wezesha spearheaded and funded with the generous donations of many supporters. This was the first secondary school in Mgaraganza, a village with hundreds of children. It also became the secondary school for many students living in villages located on Lake Tanganyika, who previously had to walk almost 2 hours to reach Kagongo Secondary School. 

In its first years, Amahoro Secondary School was performing like a new school -- that is to say, not well. They didn’t have many resources, there was no laboratory for science subjects, some classrooms were still under construction, they didn’t have enough desks and chairs for all students, and there was a shortage of toilets to serve students as their numbers increased over the years. They also lacked electricity and therefore had no way to make copies or print materials for the students, and no opportunity to offer evening tutoring support. With these and other limitations facing the school, Amahoro students were not performing particularly well on national exams, which both affected the school’s ranking as well as the students’ prospects of attending high school.

Over the years, Project Wezesha has run several campaigns to address some of these shortcomings. With the help of rock star supporters like Shelmina, Minaz and Kate -- who each bring impressive networks of generous donors -- we were able to furnish all classrooms with desks and chairs, as well as add additional latrines. The students were thrilled about this!

In addition, Shelmina and Minaz -- a power couple who we fondly refer to as Amahoro’s Guardian Angels -- launched a fundraising campaign in April 2020 commemmorating Shelmina's 60th birthday. Despite the emerging panic around the Coronavirus pandemic, their friends and family contributed thousands of dollars! With the capital (over $30,000) raised through this fundraiser, Project Wezesha was able to coordinate the following:

  • Our general contractor, Isaya and his team completed the floors in every single classroom;
  • They plastered and painted the walls in each classroom;
  • They built a feminine care facility for the girls so their periods are no longer a reason they stay home;
  • They installed a 5,000 gallon water tank;
  • Carpenters in Kigoma built and installed windows and doors in each classroom;
  • We commissioned a solar power company to install solar panels on the school; and
  • We provided a photocopy/print machine, plus 5 Dell computers for the teachers.

This fall, teachers and students were able to stay later at the school to prepare for the important Form 2 and Form 4 national exams. 

What was the impact??

Amahoro Secondary School jumped in rankings and now places 4th overall among ALL government schools in the Kigoma Region!! We would have been pleased with any top ten finish, but 4th place! The teachers and the students put so much time in to prepare for these exams. Congratulations!! Hongera sana!! What an accomplishment and what a community effort! With this boost in confidence, the teachers and students will continue to work hard and aim for the top spot.

Staying past dark and being able to print mock exams for practice was only possible due to the amazing support received through Shelmina and Minaz’s network. It goes to show how much community matters -- we are rarely one person, acting alone. Progress and success require collaboration, compassion, trust, and believing that anything is possible when we work together! 

The Season of Giving

With each success, we see more opportunity to support our students as they pursue their academic and life goals. With 4 students in university, 3 students in college, and five students likely to begin university in 2021, we could really use your support! University fees for Simoni, George, and Muhsini are $1300, 1300, and $1500 respectively for the year. We anticipate similar costs ($1200-1500) for each of our Form 6 students, when they matriculate next Fall. Now is the time for us to raise the money needed for our 2021 budget. Here are some ways you can help:

  • Click 'Give Now' (below) and make a contribution of any amount today. 
  • Let us know if you’d like to sponsor one of the students for 1, 2, or 3 years.
  • Tell your friends about our work and see if they’d like to contribute. 
  • Donate for the holidays in honor or memory of a loved one. 
  • Begin your own fundraiser through GlobalGiving and see how much you can raise through your network. 

We can offer any support you need as you select a giving plan. You can email us at projectwezeshatz@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

I often note that our work is a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of life in the world, in Tanzania, in Kigoma, in each village -- but we know it matters and it does make a difference. (This folktale told by the Nobel Peace Prize winning Kenyan author Wangari Maathai serves as our reminder.) 

The ripple effect of our work is immeasurable and we can’t do it without you! 

Thank you! Asante sana!

 

With much gratitude,

Dear Project Wezesha Supporters, 

We hope this update finds you in good health with access to your loved ones. In these challenging times, we at Project Wezesha want you to know that we are working to ensure that the educational needs and well-being of our students are being met. We have been on a brief pause as schools closed, but things are changing this month, which we highlight in this report.

Schools in Tanzania were closed when the very first case of COVID-19 was detected in Tanzania. All large gatherings were banned – weddings, funerals, sporting events, concerts, etc. We were initially quite impressed by Tanzania’s swift response, however, things took a surprising turn when President Magafuli began to deny the severity of the situation and urged citizens to go to their mosques and churches to “pray away” the virus, putting thousands in harm’s way. He opened the country to international flights in May and on June 1st, he returned all students to universities and high schools.

So what is the status of the young men in our program?

Dibeit, Tumsifu, and Saidi were set to graduate this past May. Their studies were put on hold in March and they each returned home to their families in the Kigoma region. They returned to university on June 1st and are continuing their studies with the hope of completing in Fall 2020.

Simoni, George and Ezra began their first year of university in Fall 2019 and also returned home in March. They returned to their respective universities to continue their first year and are hoping to finish strong - and stay healthy! They have reported that the universities are well-equipped with washing stations and that students are wearing masks and abiding by distancing practices.

Our Education Director, Madaga is also back in school pursuing his PhD in Curriculum Design at Mwenge Catholic University. He shared video of the washing stations and signage that was installed at the university to keep students safe. He attests to the measures universities are taking to keep their faculty, staff and students well.

We also have a cohort of young men beginning or continuing with high school and certificate programs. Mayani and Hamisi are beginning Form 6 this year at Monyovozi and Kinondoni High Schools respectively. Lameck, Maliki, Yohana, and Anzaruni will begin their first year (Form 5) of High School in July. They are attending Kahororo, Kigoma, Kilimanjaro, and Lufilyo High Schools respectively.

A few of our students are pursuing professional certificates in junior colleges. Sospeta, “The General” begins a program in Business and Management in the bustling coastal city of Dar es Salaam. Felisiano is studying Record Management within a finance program. Finally, Elias is pursuing a certificate in Business Administration. Both Felisiano and Elias will be studying in the capital city of Dodoma. 

As a professor at a large U.S. university, I (Rai Farrelly) am watching the situation unfold here. There are plans in place for us to return to campus in the fall, but there are concerns, and even dissent among faculty (which was discussed in this piece in the Washington Post). Things could change – especially in light of a recent outbreak among students at our university, but most signs point to a return to on campus learning. Tensions are high and there are many stakeholders to consider when making these decisions. Only time will tell what decisions were the most appropriate as pandemic-responsive educational models unfold globally.

In all sectors of life, we are grappling with how to restore practices so that we can begin to resume teaching and learning, rebuild hard hit parts of our economies, and engage in the lives we left behind months ago. There is no way to know how this will shake out, and we can only hope for the best for our students as they begin their re-entry into the schools in Tanzania.  

Lucas and Madaga are putting together the invoice for the upcoming school year. We know it’s a difficult time to give, but we need you now as much as ever. Please consider making a contributionas we prepare to pay for our students’ next year of high school, vocational training, and university studies. The cost for Mayani and Hamisi is $250 each per year. Lameck, Maliki, Anzaruni, and Yohana will each need $300 per year. We are still awaiting the invoices from the training colleges for Elias, Felisiano, and Sospeta, but we anticipate an estimated $500-600 each per year. In addition, as needed, some of our funds may be re-directed to make sure all students have masks and access to healthcare as they return to school. 

Thank you for your support! We wish you and your family health and security in these uncertain times.

With Gratitude, 

Rai Farrelly

Study Camp - June 2019
Study Camp - June 2019

Greetings Project Wezesha Supporters! 

In this update we have some great news about our recent Form IV graduates. Sadly, we'll also share news about the loss of one of our students.

First, the good news. In November, our last cohort of Form 4 students sat for their national examinations. In January, we received the results and we are pleased to announce the following:  

All seven of our young men passed their national examinations and will begin high school this year! They all joined us for their first study camps in 2016 and attended all 6 that were available to them (each December and June) during the course of their secondary studies (i.e., O-Levels). We are sure that these camps contributed greatly to their success on the demanding national exams.

In addition to their academic development, their parents, teachers and other community members have celebrated the ways in which these boys did in fact become men over the course of these past few years. They developed high levels of responsibility and accountability during the months that they lived on site for camp, alongside young female students with similar academic and professional aspirations and in the company of men and women teachers who served as their role models. When they weren't studying during the day, they were taking on many chores that their mothers and sisters would likely do for them at home, such as cooking and doing laundry. They really took pleasure in helping Mama Amina in the kitchen and bonded with the young women in the camp -- all becoming like family, watching out for one another, sharing stories, studying, and celebrating their respective religious events and holidays, such as Eid following Ramadan and Christmas.  

So, please join us in congratulating the following Project Wezesha future high school students:  Anzaruni, Elias, Felisiano, Lameck, Malick, Sospeter, and Yohana!! 

Malick finished with a Division I placement, meaning that he will be sent by the government to a top boarding high school. Anzaruni and Lameck finished with a Division II placement, which also guarantees a spot at a high performing, well-resourced school. We look forward to following them on this next phase of their academic and life journeys! 

Our great loss this past year was the passing of our exceptional student Waridi, who died in December very suddenly due to an undiagnosed illness. Waridi was a student with Project Wezesha since 2013. We selected him when he placed first in his standard 7 class at Bubango Primary School in Bubango Village. There was no doubt at that time that he would excel. We supported him through 4 years of secondary school, 2 years of high school, and were proud to see him start at Mbeya University of Science and Technology in October 2019. Waridi is survived by proud and loving parents, two younger siblings, and an entire community who were thrilled to watch him inch closer to his dreams of becoming an engineer.

In honor of Waridi, Project Wezesha has created the Waridi Dunia Scholarship Fund. All future support for post-secondary education provided through Project Wezesha will carry his name, and his legacy will live on in every student that comes after him. You can see young Waridi and hear about his goals in this brief video we recorded before he left for high school in 2017.

Waridi inspired many along the way. Like many of his Project Wezesha counterparts, he led with a pure heart and dedication to his family and community. He was grateful and humbled by the support that Project Wezesha supporters offered for years.

Waridi’s light shines on in others like him. Help us continue to impact communities, inspire youth to dream big, and lift young men and women out of poverty with education. Help us build up the Waridi Dunia Scholarship Fund by making your contribution today.

Thank you to everyone who has been with us for the 10+ years we’ve been working in Tanzania. Our students’ success is your success!

With full hearts,

Dear Project Wezesha Supporters,

We are pleased to offer a Fall update on students in our program. Many of them have been with us for many years – because they are awesome and continue to progress along their educational paths! Check out these amazing stories: 

*********************

College Graduates – May 2020

Tumsifu, Saidi and Dibeit are in their third and final year of University! They are all doing very well and are enthusiastic about their upcoming graduation and the opportunity to start work as young professional men. Tumsifu and Dibeit will be practicing medicine with a focus on maternal and child health. Saidi will be aiming for a career in banking with his degree in Economics. 

Recently, Dibeit visited a secondary school and literally took the stage to talk with a captive audience of young students (see picture). He reflected on his message in the following post that he shared on Facebook:

To treat or to prevent ?? I think it's better to put more efforts to prevent diseases rather than to treat them, because to prevent is simple and costs less and does not need much technology. But treatments are costly and sometimes can lead to permanent disabilities, loss of hope, side effects from medication. Prevention is much more effective; you can educate thousands of people within one hour and 80% of them are changed and saved.

This message is for all my friends on Facebook - I need you to support me by telling your neighborhood, friends, kids, and students to avoid practices like unsafe sexual behavior, smoking cigarettes, unsafe abortion, excessive alcohol drinking, peer pressure, and drug abuse since all of these can danger their health status and destroy their future.

I'm focus on the young generation who have more time to change the world and pursue their destinations. (I'm happy and I'm doing that every day.) I hope more than 80% of my friends on Facebook are going to support me.

************** 

A New Cohort of University Students

This year, four of our students completed Form 6 (High School) and recently found out that they have been accepted to University!! Huge congratulations to Waridi, Simoni, George, and Ezra.

  • Waridi was accepted to Mbeya University of Science and Technology and plans to pursue a BS in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, which is a 4-year program.
  • Simoni was accepted to the University of Dodoma and will pursue a BCS-MD – BS in Doctor of Medicine, which is a 5-year program.
  • George was also accepted to the University of Dodoma and will pursue a BA in Environmental Disaster Management, a 3-year program.
  • Ezra will attend Mpwapwa Teachers’ College with the goal of attaining a Diploma in Science, Mathematics and ICT to teach in secondary school – a 3-year program.

We especially need you now as we strive to raise the necessary funds to support our next cohort of higher education students! We are happy to report that Waridi, Simoni, and George have all received partial government support, which will cover most of their fees; however, there are many costs that they will each still incur – including registration fees (average $250 each), field placement fees, transportation and lodging.

Our students’ families will help as they can, but in keeping with our mission – we have always chosen to support those most in need in remote regions, which means our students’ families are poor subsistence farmers who basically grow crops and/or catch fish in quantities enough to feed their families and trade for basic necessities. Even an expense of $50 is an exceptional sacrifice for them. In December, we should know precisely what the exact fees for each young man will be. Stay tuned, and in the meantime – please consider making a donation so we have the funds for these university dreamers!

****************

Khadija – A New Business Owner

Another student from one of our earliest cohorts of students is Khadija. Khadija is the daughter of former Mgaraganza Village Chief, Bitata. Her brother Ashahadu and sister-in-law Janny have been generous hosts to Lucas, me and several of our volunteers and guests over the years. It makes all of us very happy and proud to see Khadija in her newest role as an entrepreneur. With the support of Project Wezesha donors, Khadija was able to complete secondary school and then attend vocational school to earn a certificate in clerical studies. She completed internships in offices in Kigoma and Kasulu. Then for three years she made a brave move to work in Muscat, Oman through a family connection.

She saved most of her salary and returned home to Kigoma last year with the capital she needed to launch her own business -- she fulfilled her dream of opening a stationary shop in Kigoma town (see picture). She sells office and school supplies and has a copy machine that allows her to offer much needed copy, fax, and scanning services to hundreds of citizens in Kigoma. Fortunately for Khadija, she married a young professional man who stands by her choice to continue working.

****************

Rabia – A Tailor in the Making

Another long-time student with Project Wezesha is Rabia. She is now sponsored through Girls Education International, however she joined our program years ago as a Form 1 secondary school student. We supported Rabia through secondary school and she had the opportunity to attend several of our academic study camps. After completing Form 4, Rabia chose to take a long course in tailoring at the Vocational Training and Education Authority (VETA). At VETA, she studies a number of courses including English for engineering, engineering science, math, life skills, technical drawing, entrepreneurship, theory, and a tailoring practicum. She is excelling in her math, theory, life skills and practicum courses. Engineering science and English are challenging for her. Nonetheless, her skills are progressing and we can’t wait to learn about her professional future path! (See pictures of Rabia and some of the items she has sewn.)
