    Nicolaus attends Kibiti A-level School. It was approximately 10 years ago when I was told by the teacher to go back home for failing to pay the tuition fee. I arrived home and found my mother crying due to my young brother’s serious sickness. I also observed how my parents were unable to take him to the hospital for lack of money. Honestly, it was too hard to tell my parents about the tuition fee that sent me back home from school. I thought if they were unable even to take my young brother to the hospital, how could they afford to give me the tuition fee? Then I secretly told my mother about that issue. She told me to put on my school uniform, take my exercise book, and review what my teacher taught in the last session. I had to wait until they got the money and then they would give it to me. So from this I learned that I have to study very hard in order to reach my dream to revive my house’s standard of living, helping my family and other people. The happiest moment in my life started soon when I was selected as a student to be funded by The School Fund. Honestly this was the very happiest moment because I knew it was the way to help me to reach my dream. This is because I was told that TSF will help me in education, the key of my life, when my parents were not able to afford to pay for my education and learning essentials. To be an engineer is a dream of my life. Every day when I wake up from sleep, I think thoroughly on how I can be an engineer. The only way to be an engineer, I think, is through studying and passing my exams, especially the courses in engineering. Therefore, I will increase effort in studying in order to pass the exams with the best grades so that I will be able to get there. Honestly, after fulfilling my dreams of becoming what I want to be, I plan to give back very greatly to the community of Tanzania and the entire world. This is to for school to be free of cost, maybe colleges as well. In other countries, people study and get education for no cost and education is provided for free as The School Fund does for us.

    I remember a story my mother told me when I was young. It was evening and people had started going home. It was raining very heavily. A girl called Youma and her younger sister were outside. They were feeling cold. Nobody was there to help them. My mother was touched by their condition and took them in and gave them shelter. My mother told me that I should worry about people who are suffering and help them if I can. When my dream of being a teacher has come true, I promise to help other people.

    Class Rank: 4/301 My happiest moment in my life is when my mother is happy and all my family members are together. I dream to become an engineer when I grow up ,so my family can live a better life. I am going to get there by studying hard and achieving high scores in my exams. The most difficult experience I had was the time when my mother was not able to make enough money to support her family. From that I learnt that our life is hard, I must do my best to reach my dream job so I can help my dear mother. Someday I will be proud of myself when I improve my mother's life. After I become an engineer I will fund other children's school fees. I will make sure that all the children can get education and have good future even though their family are poor.

    I am the oldest in a family of two children. I come from Iringa but now I live in Dar es Salaam with my mother. I completed my ordinary education level last year and now am taking pre-form 5 studies. I have never seen my father since I was born. My mother has no work so that she cannot pay the school fees and all the necessities of school. I went to school even though I had nothing. I hope that difficult situation never repeats in my life. I was very happy when I found out that I was among the students sponsored by TSF. I want to be a doctor of children. In education, I believe "my effort today, will determine my life tomorrow, and help others".

    Class Rank: 1/88 The most difficult time I experienced is when my father passed away in an accident. After I lost my father, I realize that my happiest time is when I can be with my family members. I was proud of myself when I learned I scored grade A in my Standard 7 National Exam. The dream I have is to become an engineer. In order for me to become an engineer, I will make sure I study hard and pass all the exams. I want to be a civil engineer responsible for construction. I want to solve problems in infrastructures like roads and railways. The School Fund is a foundation that supports poor students like myself by providing me an opportunity to proceed with higher education. If my dream comes true I will donate part of my salary to the School Fund. I want to make sure the School Fund really grow continuously and support more needy students.

    Class rank: 2/31 My dream in life is to be a teacher who is able to teach the students of A-Level Physics and Chemistry. And my aim to teach these subjects is to prepare good professionals like doctors, physicists, engineers and science teachers. Upon my success I wish to help people with problems like crippled and deaf patients, because I was born crippled and I got helped too. My parents were not able to send me to the hospital for treatment. But fortunately a kind man helped me and I became normal. Being crippled was the most difficult thing I experienced in my life since I was depending on my parents and relatives as I was unable to walk. My happiest moment in my life was the time I was told my Form 4 results of the National Exams were out and I had passed to join to A-Level education. Two years from now I shall have accomplished Form 6 and join at the university taking my profession of becoming a teacher. Lastly, I would like to thank for the opportunity given to me by The School Fund. I will work on it effectively.
