May 2018 Project Wezesha Update

Dear Project Wezesha Supporters,

We're happy to share an update about two of our students - Edasto and Nasra. They will be both be attending high school in the coming year! And ... this is so important to announce to the rooftops: These are our first female students to attend high school!!

Introducing Edasta

The Tanzanian government will select which high school she will attend.  It could be in any region, and she doesn't know if it will be a day school or boarding school.  Either way, she is excited about the opportunity. 

When asked why Edasta wants to go to high school, she answered, "because it makes my heart happy."  

Edasta wants to study Swahili, History, and English with the goal of becoming a translator.  Her desire to become a translator comes from the happiness she feels when she sees foreigners in Tanzania. 

 Until school starts, Edasta is teaching at a nursery school.  The paid position will help her as she transitions to being high school student. 

Edasta's advice for students who want to advance their studies is to answer questions with details.  Her advice for her three younger sisters is "study hard to be like me." 

Indeed she is a fantastic role model for her younger siblings, as well as other Project Wezesha students.

Congratulations, Edasta.   We are proud of you and wish you well!

Introducing Nasra (pictured in pink)

Nasra successfully completed Form 4 and will be attending a boarding school in Uganda for high school.  Although she is sad that she will only see her family once a year while in high school, she believes the sacrifice will be worth it. 

Nasra understands that education can break the cycle of poverty.  Her advice to others is, "Study hard because life is so bad." 

Nasra may be done with secondary school but she is not done studying.  She plans to study various subjects before high school starts. 

In high school, Nasra will focus on Swahili, History, and English because those are subject she hopes to teach after finishing school. 

Her parting advice is, "Be honest about everything in order to make sure this world is a good place for living things." 

Project Wezesha Female Success Stories

Our Form 4 girls tried really hard to excel during study camp, which helped them perform well on their national examinations. However, several of them still didn't qualify to continue on to high school.

They will, however, be moving on to vocational training school for a range of courses including nursing and toursim. Stay tuned for udpates on those students!!

In the meantime, do consider making a contribute to help us cover the high school fees for Edasta and Nasra who will begin the next phase of their academic journey in July! 

Thank you for your continued support! Our journey continues, and we're happy you're still with us. Do share with friends and family about why this cause matters to you. Our girls are so grateful. 

Remember -- Mother's Day is right around the corner. Maybe a donation in mom's honor would be a nice way to show more than one special woman you care. 

Wishing you a lovely Spring into Summer! 

Cheers,

Rai Farrelly
