This week we secured commitments for students 10 and 11… and we couldn’t be more excited! As you know, when you sponsor a Tanzanian child to receive private education you help redesign their future – and it’s a bright one!
As you may recall, our original Fab Five gentlemen had 16 children. One was graduating this year, and another had been told that support in secondary school would mean no support for University, so his father had declined a sponsor.
Things can change on a dime, as we all know. First, we discovered our student who had declined had been misinformed. So now, he needed a sponsor! Within a week, as we have continued to experience throughout the development of the Foundation, someone spontaneously showed up wanting to sponsor.
Next, another of our Fab Five found himself in need of taking in one of his siblings’ children. Could we find her a sponsor also? Of course, thank you God, someone else familiar with the cause made the decision to sponsor, and so she will also be able to go to private school come January!
What a beautiful unfolding. Asante sana again and again for the generosity. Please continue to spread the word, and help more get involved (click here to donate), as we now have the opportunity very soon to consider adding more of the porters’ families to the Seeking a Sponsor list!
