Nice to see Ilet enjoying her 7th birthday in class - with a Barbie cake no less!



Educational project in Tanzania – meet our student Ilet

The Rotary Club of Kingston-Frontenac is sponsoring a student in rural Tanzania with a full elementary school scholarship, in cooperation with  the Rotary Club of Hai-Kilimanjaro and the Saidia Agricultural and Social Care Organisation , Tanzania.

We are committed to a scholarship of $500.00 USD per year for one scholar during the full seven years of elementary school .Payment is made at the beginning of each schoolyear and covers school fees, books, uniform, transport, and meals where needed . This will be reviewed for possible ongoing high school sponsorship.

The student, chosen locally, is 6 years old Ilet Shirima, starting grade one. She lives in Kibosho at Singa Juu Village.
President Peter Morrin , who travelled to Tanzania in November 2022 wrote:

"Ilet and Bright Future School

I met our sponsored student, Ilet, and she is lovely. She is attending a new private school developed by Timothy Massawe which is better than any primary school I have yet seen in TZ. The school fees of $500 USD are consistent with other schools of similar quality. The school has a student: teacher ratio of 25:1.  Much better than the national norm."

We also received a thank you note drawn by the student and a picture.
