Dear TSF Sponsors,

This is Samantha, Orkeeswa School's Scholarship Coordinator, writing on behalf of Eline. Orkeeswa students just returned from their holiday break and are eager to be starting the new school year. Eline and her classmates completed their 10th grade studies and National Exams last fall, and while we wait for her exam results from the Ministry of Education, Eline is completing a 10-week internship with the Girls Foundation of Tanzania in Arusha. She is currently providing tutoring to young girls at the center's library, taking a computer skills and typing course, and volunteering at a local primary school!

This experience will provide a unique opportunity for Eline to give back to her community, as well as explore teaching as a career path as she waits to see what her next steps are in her secondary school education. We will certainly keep you updated on Eline's progress with her community service and entrepreneurship projects, as well as her plans going forward.

Thank you for your continued support of Eline 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.
