I am Melanie, and living in Zanzibar since 11 years. I have met Emma (Emmanuel Dokare) also 11 years ago and since day one he has worked as a gardener/ maintenance employee at our guesthouse. He is the most friendly and trustworthy man, that I have ever met. He is our right hand ever since. Four years ago his wife delivered their first child; Len Emmanuel. Unfortunately her mother, Emma's wife, passed away 6 months later.

Emma has been struggling to take good care of his daughter ever since. She stayed with his family on the mainland at first, but the money he sent was rather spent on food for the whole family then to take care of his daughter. He then decided to get her back to Zanzibar. He is working full time to be able to provide for housing and food. His dream is to get his daughter the best education possible. This is fairly costly though.

Emma’s dream came true. Last year we manage to get Len to school SEC ( South East International School/ . Len is doing wonderful. She is very happy in school and next to the fact that her English is getting better everyday she has developed into a very happy social, playful child.  Last year we have raised 1220$ and my family and I have paid and will pay 25$ a month over the next 4 years + school trips + uniform. This means we have so far covered one year of school fee for Len The school offered 50% discount for Len being 125$ a month. We would love Len to be able to continue to go to SEC!

This means that 5280$ is needed for the next 4 years! 

We will keep you updated on her progress and will be 100% transparent in the costs. Last year we send our donor’s updates with pictures about Lens progress and this year we will do so again. If you are in Zanzibar you are most welcome to check up on the school.
