Hallelujah, Enock, and Markus-- college friends!
Hallelujah, Enock, and Markus-- college friends!

Dear Friends—

This summer, my colleague Vanessa met with several graduates of the Nehemiah Gateway University (NGU) bachelor’s program in Uganda and Tanzania. We thought you would enjoy hearing a little bit about what they are doing, seven months after graduation.

Juliet, who wrote her thesis about menstrual health in Uganda, is working for Days For Girls Uganda as their Communications Coordinator. Days for Girls produces low-cost reusable sanitary napkins and sells them to businesses, organizations, or individuals, helping to solve the problem of girls dropping out of school due to taboos around menstruation. https://www.daysforgirls.org/

Hallelujah  is working for Empower Limited in Tanzania. You can watch Hallelujah talking about how NGU has helped him in the video clip below.

Hallelujah’s brother, Enock, is using his business degree to work for Coca Cola in Tanzania in their finance department.

Markus, who grew up in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, is now Nehemiah Gateway’s local coordinator and liaison in Tanzania. He is also working with his sister, Tina, who runs the Agape Children's Village in Morogoro. The orphanage is currently home to 30 orphans, and they are growing the educational offerings there as the orphans themselves grow!

Your support is helping future leaders like Juliet, Hallelujah, Enock, and Markus to gain the skills they need to help people in their home countries.

With gratitude,

Sarah

Nembuan Interviews for University
Nembuan Interviews for University

Nembuan Loserian is a 22-year-old Masai woman from the remote village of Malambo, in northern Tanzania, and the oldest of ten children. In school, her favorite subject is “any subject with mathematics, as I like mathematics so much.” Since she was a child, she has dreamed of being a pilot—specifically, a humanitarian relief pilot in her home country.  She remembers seeing small planes coming to her village as a little girl, and she would run to the runway and ask the pilots—always European men—questions about the planes and how they worked. To say that her chosen career is an unusual one for a Masai woman is an understatement!

She started studying at Nehemiah Gateway University (NGU) this December in our Bachelor’s program of Economy and Business. Her desire to learn to fly, and to use aviation to bring needed medical and humanitarian relief supplies to remote villages in Tanzania, impressed the interview committee at the university. NG founder Arnold Geiger connected her with Matthias Wuttke, founder of Christian Charity Flyers (CCF) soon after she began her studies. CCF is a Swiss nonprofit that has been combining aviation and charity work since 2003. Mr. Wuttke agreed to meet with Nembuan, and to teach her how to fly! He has already begun working with her on the written part of the licensing process, and will begin practical training after that. When she graduates, Nembuan will not only have a solid foundation to help her start a successful aviation business, but also the technical knowledge to realize her dream of flying a plane.

This is just one example of how Nehemiah Gateway University works creatively with partners to integrate classroom and real-world experience, so that students like Nembuan can realize their dreams and begin to make a positive difference in the world.

This Mother’s Day, why not give the gift of education, in honor of the mothers in your life? When you donate to NGU’s Scholarship Fund, you can select “Donate in honor,” and send an electronic or paper card to your mother—just in time for Mother’s Day!

All the best,

Sarah Pita

NG University Class of 2017!
NG University Class of 2017!

On December 22, 2017, 26 amazing students graduated from Nehemiah Gateway University in Pogradec, Albania. They returned to their homes in places like Albania, Tanzania, Uganda, and South Sudan, ready to get started improving their communities, working as entrepreneurs or pursuing careers in their chosen fields. 

Meanwhile, a new class of students is arriving in Albania to start a new year at the University. Among them, we have four new students from Tanzania this year. Coletha and Dotto both grew up at the Kemodo Children's Home near Lake Victoria. They both plan to work there after graduation, helping a longtime Nehemiah Gateway partner to broaden its funding through entrepreneurship. Nembuan and Namayana are two young Masai women from the village of Malambo, in northern Tanzania. Nembuan aspires to be a bush pilot after she graduates, bringing needed medicines and supplies to remote regions of her country. Namayana plans to open a store in Malambo after graduation, giving back to the community as she succeeds.

Thanks to your help, these young people, and others like them, can attain a college education at the Nehemiah Gateway University. Thank you!

You can continue to support Nehemiah Gateway University students through our scholarship fund here.

All the best,

Sarah Pita
