    I come from a family where my parents can afford food and other family expenses but it is quite hard for them to pay school fees. I attend Iringa Girls Secondary School where I always lead in my class. I am very interested in studying how the economy works. Tanzania is taking big steps to grow its economy. I want to be an economist. Being sponsored by TSF help me to achieve my dream, then I can help my country people who have problems like mine. Through TSF, our life has changed for the good.

    I am my mother’s first child and I never knew my father. When I was 4, I was sent to stay with my grandmother. Mom worked day and night but still not able to afford school fees. Mother remarried and had two sons. My step daddy was a new hope for the family but he died. We were always financially unstable, but with his death it has become horrible. Despite the hard life, I always cherish the moments I spent with my step daddy simply because I know how it felt to have a daddy by my side. I want to become a doctor and support my family. I never knew how to hit this target until the coming of TSF, I saw light. I would like a university education. I was proud when TSF selected me for a scholarship, it made me feel special to be chosen out of many.

    Swabra attends Ndono A-level School. In 2003 when I was 4 years old, my life turned to a storm when my father left the world. It was a very hard time for me as well as my mum. My mum cried all day long. She had to fight for the things my father owned but she ended up losing everything. My father’s relatives took all his property. My mother had a hard time because I was a small kid who needed to go to school with other children and to have the love of both a mother and a father, but I got neither. I had to study with my aunts, my mum’s sisters. My mum was almost dying because she didn’t know what to do to save me. I thank God I went to an orphanage center where I grew up and went to school. I started in nursery school and stayed until I completed my class seven. I was very happy when I joined The School Fund in 2012 when I was in Form 1. I enjoy doing journals and also associating with people from different levels of life. I thank God that I completed the Ordinary level at Ummu Salama Secondary School. I felt very proud after I got a positive result. It showed me that I can do something. Also it gave me the hope to pull up my socks and work harder than ever. I promise that my community will benefit a lot from me. All in all, I will help poor children to go to school and achieve their goals. I will help people go to the hospital when they fall sick and getting basic needs to poor people, in short helping all the community. My dream is to become a teacher. I request school funds from you so that I can continue studying and achieve my goals because education is the key to life. I promise that I will work hard and harder to reach my dream. Also I plan to give back to The School Fund after my dreams come true by assisting The School Fund’s learning facilities and being part of the peace and love among The School Fund team members. I LOVE THE SCHOOL FUND TEAM.

    The happiest moments in my life are when I finished primary school last year and when I became a TSF member. I felt especially proud of myself. The most difficult experience I had was when I lost my grandparents on my mothers side when I was in standard 7. What I learnt is that all of us as human beings will one day die. And that one who has gone cant come back to earth, but what you must do is be courageous. In four years to come, I want to have completed my O-level secondary education and join A-level studies. That is the dream of my life and having it helps me to struggle hard.

    My happiest moment is when I study and comprehend the new things. With that knowledge I am able to teach other people so they can understand. My difficult experience is when my father got an accident and broke his left arm and right leg. I was worried and felt very sad. I cried and then I prayed to God. After sometime my father returned and was all well. I learn that God is watching everything I do , I must pray to God first on everything. I plan to build a science college for my community and open an orphanage center too. I plan to donate some of my salary to the School Fund after I fulfill my dreams. So the School Fund has more money to help more children.
