Project Report | Nov 8, 2018
Fall 2018 Update on Project Wezesha Students

Dear Project Wezesha Supporters,

We have so much to be grateful for right now! When Lucas and I founded Project Wezesha in 2009 (our 10 year anniversary is coming up!), we never imagined that we would be watching so many students complete secondary school with our support, enter vocational training programs, start high school, enter professional degree programs, and even go to university! 

One of our young men, Albert has just completed high school and was admitted to a diploma program in accounting -- Diploma of Procurement and Logistics Management. He will be starting this two year program in the new year and will be studying at the Institute of Accountancy in Arusha, Tanzania. 

Our Project Wezesha and Girls Education International students began their Form Four exams on November 5th. This year, we have many students sitting for these national exams. The exam period will run for two weeks and we will have results in January 2019. 

After the first day of testing, Madaga and Lucas checked in with the students to see how they were feeling. They reported that they were happy and felt confident thanks to the support they have received from the Academic Study Camps that we offer every December and June. They encountered content on the exams that they had reviewed in the camps. If we are lucky, up to 10 girls will start high school next year!! Everyone -- students, teachers and families -- are inspired by the impact of these camps on our students' academic performances and personal growth! We look forward to celebrating their tremendous efforts very soon. 

Mahamudu continues his second year of studies. He shared his growing knowledge base for work as a pharmecist in the following What's App message. Again, perhaps you have to have "known them when" to really appreciate how cool it is that he is sending this message via an App on a SmartPhone using academic, scientific langauge in English! (See photos of Mahamudu)

In the pictures, I am performing a practical in the laboratory. We were many students in one course that deals with pharmaceutical science. In the laboratory we were trying to prepare various mixture and solutions of different ingredients. One prep was KAOLIN MIXTURE P.CX.(syn.mistura kaolin alkalina). This mixture is used as Absorbent in the symptomatic treatment of diarrhoea. Another one prepared was BENZOIC ACID SOLUTION P.CX. The ingredients used in this preparation was 1,benzoic acid....... 5.0g , propylene glycol........75.0ml   , purified water freshly boiled......to 100.0ml.   The benzoic acid was dissolved in propylene glycol then water is added in small quantities with constant stirring to produce the required volume. This solution is used as a preservative.

On December 14th, I will be heading to Tanzania to visit our students as well as to observe and teach classes in our December academic study camp. I'm looking forward to sharing news from the field! This year, two of our long-standing supporters will be accompanying me to see the impact of their annual donations up close and personal! You'll be hearing from all of us very soon! 

In the meantime, as our students continue to be successful, we need your support more than ever! With the holidays around the corner, consider talking about our work with friends and family -- Would they chip in for Giving Tuesday? (GivingTuesday is Nov. 27th; keep an eye on our Facebook page for promotions coming soon!)

You can also consider alternative ways of giving through the holidays. GlobalGiving makes it easy to make donations in honor of loved ones. Many of us simply *have* too much -- think of someone in your life who would be touched by a donation made in their name to support students striving toward their academic and life goals. 

Asante Sana!

With much gratitude, 
Raichle Farrelly
