About

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.

Hello students,

I finally got back to the US last week.
It has been a very long trip to Tanzania this year total three weeks.

I was very happy to meet all of you and know everyone better.

My trip started from Karatu. I visited 5 schools in Karatu and I learn where do you go to school every day.

I am very happy to know all of you are doing well and every of you has a dream that you want to be successful one day. I encourage all of you to try your best to reach you own destination.

The get together was so well prepared and done by each of you. I am very happy to saw all your science presentations and poems you wrote to TSF and me. I will treasure them all my life.

I can say I am very proud to all of you. Keep up the good work I want to see each of you one day get to
good University/College to reach your own dream.

After Karatu, I went to ARUSHA attended the TED Global conference and visited couple schools in ARUSHA.
I enjoyed the TED conference this year. It was focused on the Africa, specially in agriculture, health and education.

Mr. Amos was a volunteer there, he had great experience being this Global conference and met people from around the world.
He had a life experience at the conference, where he was able to meet a group of bright inventive and talented group of people.

Later I went to Iringa. Iringa almost the second hometown for me. I have been there six times.
I visited all 8 schools in Iringa and meet all of you in person. I was very happy to meet you.

I had a great time at the get together party. All of you did a wonderful presentation. I am very happy to know all of you had fun that night.

My this year Tanzania trip was set MMM computer center for most of the 13 TSF schools.
At Iringa, We build total 5 new computer center in Iringa girls, Klerruu, Lugalo, Ebenezer, Miyomgoni and Update one MMM center at Ummusalama. We build one new computer center at Karatu Secondary School and update one MMM center at Ganako.

I am very proud of building the MMM computer center in most of the TSF schools. I really want all of you to go to the computer center to learn every subject you are interested from the RACHEL PLUS.
In the future everyone work will be on the computer. I hope that every single of you tell me what do you learn from the RACHEL PLUS.
I would like you could to start the debate team in your school so you all could practice how to speak in the public. Have the Math Club and challenge each other on the Math.

They will all benefit your long-term confidence.

I hope I will hear from all of you soon.
Hellow Judy!
thanks for your presence in my life cause you have been a great helper in my school journey,without you I would have lost my dreams.For that may GOD be with you in your every step.
With love,
Swabra.

    Kenya

    Isaac is the fourth born child in a family of six children. He has a twin brother called Muinde Nzingi. Their parents are divorced and have deserted the children. The children live with a guardian (Florence) who takes care of them. The main challenge is that the guardian family has a big family of their own (comprised of seven children) to fend for therefore limiting their ability to support these adopted children. The first and the second born brothers of Isaac completed form four in 2014 through support of well-wishers. The third born is currently in form four at the Mbaikini School and is supported by the guardian family. Isaac did his primary exam in 2014 and passed well with 359 marks and has been admitted at The Mbaikini school. Isaac is a very bright and is among the best top performing students. He is very determined to join secondary school and study hard to be an accountant in future.
