As we go into June The Toa Nafasi Project's 2019 expansion project is well and truly underway. We are now reaching more children with learning difficulties in five more schools in Tanzania - bringing our total to nine! Our tutor numbers have also swelled and they have faced the challenges of supporting additional students with great dedication.
Rose Assey has recently been appointed the new Head Teacher for our program at Magereza Primary School. She initially joined the tutoring staff in 2016 after hearing of The Toa Nafasi Project's work and deciding she wanted to be a part of what we do.
"In 2016 I was able to join Toa Nafasi and I was so happy to get that position."
Rose really enjoys working with the children and seeing the difference The Toa Nafasi Project is making through tutors like herself and through our referral system for children with medical or psycho-social issues.
"Many children now can read, write, and do mathematics. Children with various illnesses have been taken . . . for treatment and observation with the goal of solving their problems."
With support from tutors like Rose the future for The Toa Nafasi Project's children can only be bright!
And with your support dedicated tutors like Rose can continue to assist Tanzanian children with learning difficulties to give them the chance to reach their potential in their education and their later lives.
