Project Report | Feb 5, 2018
February 2018 Update on Project Wezesha

Dear Project Wezesha Supporters,

In this report, we'd love to share some updates from Dibeit, who is studying clinical medicine at Mbeya College of Health Science, a branch of the University of Dodoma. His program of study is three years long and he is thrilled about the road ahead.

Dibeit has already made great strides and has been recognized for his hard work. Check out this amazing update he sent last week:

Today, I have been selected by a team of doctors and students to be a the Class Representative. It's because of your pure heart and struggle. This is your honor. Asante!

Wow! We're so proud of Dibeit, and to be honest - we're not surprised about this honor. Anyone who has met Dibeit can imagine how he came to be the class representative. He is one of the most charismatic, supportive, and entertaining young men I know.

In an earlier message, I asked Dibeit to give us some news from his new life at University. This is what he shared:

Dear Rai, I would like to thank you together with our donors in Project Wezesha. I'm feeling happy to tell you that since I started to take clinical medicine at Mbeya College of Health Science, my experience in medicine has become very big. Of course, university life is very nice. We study in deep about human health and medical treatment. Also, we always use computer and Internet to approach the medical field.

We have good lectures, good zonal referral hospital with fully equipped departments; we are free to visit patients any time after class hours. I have visited the children’s department, to learn about disease which mostly affect children under 5 years as an assignment group.

Also we have 15 periods per week. Our lessons are based mostly in practicals. For example, we practice how to talk with patients of different ages ethically and professionally. We study privately and in groups, especially during night. We also make epidemiological research, especially in communicable diseases like cholera and many others.

These are just few examples about my medical progression this first semester, but we have more than that, and we remain with two months to complete first semester. In waiting for second semester, I hope Project Wezesha will continue to support us for the coming semester. I'm working hard because my dream is to become specialist in medicine and I have a photo of some of my studies. Thank you very much. -Dibeit.

As the pictures show, this program doesn't waste any time before getting students into the hospitals (in their white coats!), working with patients and connecting theory and practice. We are still chipping away at the university fees we owe for this second semester for Dibeit, Tumsifu, and Saidi. 

If you believe in these young men, as well as our other Project Wezesha students who will hopefully follow in their footsteps, please consider sharing this update, encouraging friends to donate, and making a contribution today. 

Asante Sana!

Thank you, very much!
