Dear TSF sponsors,

This is Tunu, the Communications and Development Manager at Orkeeswa School.

I hope you are doing well and staying safe in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.

In case you didn't get our newsletter, Orkeeswa School has taken the following steps in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:
* Closed the school on Monday, March 16 in anticipation that cases would soon be confirmed in Tanzania
* Ahead of that, we educated students and staff about the virus, social distancing, and other preventative measures they could start taking immediately
* Created and distributed Swahili informational materials to share with families and community members.
If you have any questions about Orkeeswa during this time, please let us know.

While this is a unique time globally, we are working hard to make sure we keep things on track with Orkeeswa School, and that includes keeping our Scholarship Program updated and in full operation.

Papaa completed the 8th Grade in December after taking his National Exams. Results from the Ministry of Education came in and their class has a 100% pass rate. We are very proud of them!

Papaa and his classmates also participated in the Orkeeswa Science fair in December before the end of the school year. Papaa and his teammates worked on a project called: "Making a Local Extension." The Science Fair culminated with a school and parent showcase where Papaa and his classmates shared their projects and findings with Orkeeswa students, primary school students, family, and community members. This is an incredible event every year and demonstrates how our students use their education at Orkeeswa to also educate others in their community.

Papaa had this to say about the event when we spoke to him, “We all eagerly waited for Science Fair through out the year. So, I and my teammates had a great time working on our project and presenting it to everyone.”

Attached is a photo of Papaa and his teammates presenting their project during the showcase. We are very proud of him!

Thank you for supporting Papaa's education at Orkeeswa School!

With Gratitude,
Tunu and Orkeeswa School
