Meet New Girl On The Block - Saada

If you walk into Sadili any cold early morning at 6.20 a.m. you will find her jogging, at 10 am, she will be holding her books smiling and chatting with her classmates as she prepares for her next class and at 4.00 p.m., she will be sweating her heart out on the tennis court. That is the new life of 10 year old Saada, from Burundi. Through the Education Fund, she hopes to have, not only a good education, but also that her life will change forever.

Saada comes form the clums of Bujumbura, where she is the youngest of four children, and lives with her mother, who was recently divorced from their father. Saada has always hoped to join Malezi School, where her brother, Hassan Ndayashimiye, lived, studies and trained for four years before moving to the ITF Centre in Pretoria. Hassan, a past beneficiary of the Sport and Education Fund, played Wimbledon and US Open Juniors this year, and is very pleased that his sister is following in his footsteps.

For Saada, the future is great, and with help from GlobalGiving, all is possible.
