About

Isaya comes from a very large family as his father had 9 wives and dozens of children. His mother has 9 children herself, including Isaya. However, now that Isaya’s father has died, his mother struggles to support her many children as a subsistence farmer. Isaya is the youngest son and only one of his older siblings had the opportunity to attend secondary school. He hopes to be able to follow in his brother’s footsteps and finish secondary school — setting a good example for his younger sister who also attends Orkeeswa in Form One.

Hi TSF Sponsors!

This is Emma, the Scholarship Coordinator at Isaya’s school, and I am writing on his behalf to update you all. Isaya and his classmates have been doing very well in 11th Grade this year, and it’s been amazing to watch them grow into their positions as leaders across campus. I had a chance to sit down with Isaya recently and hear his thoughts about how he learned to be a leader, and I wanted to share them with you all.

"I feel like I learned how to be a leader from my father and the way that he deals with things at home. He is always listening and advising people, but he does it in a good way that people respect. I also feel like I learned from my teachers who are always advising and helping us. I also think that I learned about leadership from reading different books, like “Democracy” by Nyerere, the former President. I think it is so important to be a leader because in our community, not everyone has the skills to help direct people. So, if you are able and have gotten the skills, you must take time to help and advise other people.
 
I think I am a leader because I am able to guide people in a good way— in a way that they will appreciate. For example, in soccer, I am a team captain and the other players are very happy that I am a captain. They have asked me to stay captain because I am always working to do the right things for them and for the team. For example, if we want everyone to be on time, I am really pushing the players to come after school so that we can have a better development for the team and spend all of practice working hard."

At Orkeeswa, we feel lucky to have Isaya’s leadership in the classroom and on the soccer pitch, and we’re excited to continue to watch him grow and mature in his final year at Orkeeswa! Thank you all very much for supporting Isaya’s education. He is so appreciative and always loves the encouraging words and sentiments.

With gratitude,
Emma (on Isaya’s behalf)

    I am the third child in my family. My father is a driver and my mother is a cook. The problem that faces me at school is that I have been chased away because I did not pay my school fees. I really feel very sad when I am sent home from school and leave others in class studying. I want to study hard and help my family. I also want to help other people who can't get their basic needs, for example, food. After four years, what I want is to get Division 2 in my national exams. The thing I want to accomplish is to give hope to students like me so they don't give up in life.

    Class Rank: 1/50 My dream is to become an engineer when I grow up. I know that I have to do good in subjects like Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. In my life time I learned that difficult subjects were more rewarding when I did not give up. I learned about difficult experiences when I lost my youngest sister. It was so painful to face death when I was still a kid. I feel proud when I succeed when it is difficult now, and even more proud of myself when I received my score as the 3rd in the whole district. After these four years I want to become an engineer, to help the society in different ways and also help my fellow citizens. I also want to become a good citizen of my country.
