Karibu! Welcome! Thank you for your time and care...

As most of you probably know already, I am currently volunteering in a remote secondary girl's school in the South of Tanzania, near Chipole (Songea). I have been staying with an incredibly kind group of Sisters and working here as a volunteer for the past few weeks (writing grant applications for the school's construction projects, helping the headmistress with secretary work, but most of all teaching gospel singing in the classrooms - though i'm sure they are teaching me just as much as i've been teaching them!!). One of my Sister friends approached me a few days ago in a shy manner to tell me her little sister Maria (a form 2 student in this school) can no longer afford to pay her school fees and will have to be sent home to the small village she was born in if a solution could not be found soon. She asked me for my help and financial support. As I am currently traveling on a small budget and have been donating money to various causes (including the school) already, I am not able to provide the full amount myself, so I decided this would be a good occasion to create a fundraising page. I am hoping that together with friends and other generous souls we may be able to raise the equivalent of 2 years full-board tuition for Maria. One year (including school fees, accommodation, food, activities, ...) amounts to approximately 1,000,000 tzs (Tanzania shillings) which is the equivalent of about 485 dollars. Therefore two years would represent a bit less than 1000$ (I figured I'd round it upwards, as I know the extra funds will be put to good use here - to buy school supplies, for example). Thank you in advance for your generosity and I will post a few pictures I took of Maria and her Sister sister yesterday... Asante sana! Merci... xoxo Sonia
