Dear AfricAid supporters,
I am writing, once again, to extend heartfelt thanks for your support of the school lunch program at Losinoni Primary School. As I mentioned in my previous report, your ongoing support of the program is truly changing lives at the school: because of the school lunch program, attendance has increased by 30%, and graduation rates have, in turn, increased from 20% to 90%. All of this has been made possible by our supporters like you, at a cost of a mere $25 a day for 750 students!
As the school year comes to a close in Tanzania, the AfricAid Team hopes that you know just how much you have helped to change lives in the small Maasai village of Losinoni. I'd like to share the story of one particular student at Losinoni. His name is Mirishi Ngaya, and he walks miles to and from school each day. Even though he has many chores to do around his home, his parents are happy for him to attend school every day, because they know that he is receiving a high-quality education, and is also eating a nutritious meal there every afternoon. Mirishi is proud of his success at Losinoni Primary School, and he hopes to continue his education at secondary school next year. To view a video of Mirishi's daily walk to school in Losinoni village, please visit 8billionlives: http://www.8billionlives.com/mirishi-ngaya/.
Thank you so much for your support, and happy holidays from the AfricAid team and from the students at Losinoni!
With much appreciation,
