Jennifer is fully funded for 2017, but she is raising funds for the current funding year.

Jennifer is a student from Tanzania. She needs $1200 by July 1, 2018 to stay in school and is currently 16% toward her goal.

Raised $200 from 1 donor Needs $1000


My parents separated a long time ago and I have not seen either of them for two years now. I live with my grandparents and with my brother and sister. My grandfather owns one donkey and one cow, so we do not have very much money. My grandfather is also sick so my grandmother has a temporary job and this is where we get all of our money. Sometimes we have a hard time getting by on just that money. I finished primary school and I knew that I liked mathematics and history the best. I also like playing sports like netball.

Thank you for your letter about Jennifer. When will she get her test results? As I understand it, if she qualifies, she will have two more years of secondary school, and if she does not, she graduates with a tenth grade education? I have made a first payment towards her 2018 year. Everything I read makes me think she is at a very good school, and I am happy to try to help her finish. If you see her, tell her I wrote and am thinking about her.
Hi TSF Sponsors!

This is Samantha, Orkeeswa School's Scholarship Coordinator, writing on behalf of Jennifer. Orkeeswa students just returned from their holiday break and are eager to be starting the new school year. Jennifer and her classmates completed their 10th grade studies and National Exams last fall, and while we wait for their exam results from the Ministry of Education, these students will be participating in a teacher training seminar, doing community service with local primary school students, and engaging in Orkeeswa's entrepreneurship training program.

These experiences will provide a unique opportunity for Jennifer and her classmates to give back to their community, as well as explore entrepreneurship as a career path as they wait to see what their next steps are in their secondary school education.

We will certainly keep you updated on Jennifer's progress with her community service and entrepreneurship projects, as well as her plans going forward. Thank you for your continued support of Jennifer and Orkeeswa School. We sincerely appreciate your partnership in providing the highest quality education to our students.

With gratitude,

    I come from a family of four, my two siblings, my mother and I. My father left for the countryside after he separated from my mother. This separation left us under the care of my mother. My mother is a hardworking woman and she has inspired me a lot. I owe everything I have achieved in this young life to her. She is my biggest source of hope. I joined the football team in school and I hope to help my school achieve its highest feat. I work hard in everything I do and I go for the most challenging of experiences to gain more exposure. My philosophy in life is to always strive for the highest attainable glory.

    I come from a big family. I have nine other siblings. We are all taken care of by my father who at this point is not working/unemployed. My older siblings have attended/still attend not-very-good schools. I was to follow suit until The School Fund came to my rescue. This is a "first" in my family. This is a common situation in Kibera. I am among the lucky few from financially disadvantaged families to get support from well-wishers.
