Hi Kathleen, and other TSF sponsors! This is Lisa, the Director of Scholarships at Namnyak’s school. Our internet and power have been out for the past several months, so Namnyak has not had a chance to post to her journal yet. Hopefully we will have our computer lab up and running again soon so you can hear from Namnyak directly. Until then, I wanted to share a quote from Namnyak from her class discussion on the value of collaboration.

“When you work with other people, you can do good things. Sometimes you realize that you don’t know how to do something but if you have your friends with you to help, you can share ideas and you all can gain something. Being able to ask for help is very important. From being part of a group, I’ve also learned that I am a good leader and I can help others with the problems they’re facing.

Collaboration also allows you to help the community. Last year, I was in Public Health Leaders Club. First, we would learn about a public health topic from our teacher. Then, we went to the primary schools in order to teach them about this topic. We chose the topic of HIV/AIDS because we thought it was very important for others to know about it. From collaboration with my classmates, I was able to serve my community because there are many people there who are suffering from that disease.”

Thank you for supporting Namnyak’s education at Orkeeswa School!
