Jamal was born in Sofala province. He is a very quiet and humble boy. Respectful and polite with all older people and a good friend to other children. When back from school he makes his homework and helps his grandfather, then he goes out to play football with his friends.
He is orphaned of father who died in 2005, victim of illness. His father used to be a truck driver helper while his mother works in a nursery school. Jamal lives with his grandfather because with what his mother earns, she cannot sustain her son. The grandfather often helps her as well with rice from the field he is planting. Without help, he will not be able to proceed with his studies.
School Year 2018
Rehema attends Kondoa Girls A-level School.When I was young, I suffered from a disease for two years but because my parents were poor and less educated people, they did not take me to the hospital. With the help of God I succeeded in getting a scholarship from my neighbors and was taken to the hospital. From these difficulties I learned that education is the most basic thing that can help people solve their problems. My dream is to become a doctor one day. The only way I can reach that is by studying hard and listening to good advice from my guardians. The happiest moment in my life was to join The School Fund because they support my education. I feel good and proud of being a member of The School Fund. Four years from now, I want to be in university-level education to reach my dream.
School Year 2017
The most difficult experience in my life is poverty. My parents cannot earn enough from farming to provide all that our family requires. I am thankful that my fees in O-level were paid by The School Fund. It would be difficult for me to be in the place I am without The School Fund.
My hope is to finish Form 6 and go to university to become a pilot. I was proud when I passed standard 7 and Form 4 national exams and was chosen to joint Form 5.
After I graduate from university, I will repay The School Fund by helping new TSF students and teaching them to follow the ethics of our country. When I get a job, I will help our family to get out of poverty.
