Realising Dreams Foundation supports Tanzanian pupils
Monday February 8th, 2016
The Realising Dreams Foundation is pleased to announce it will sponsor the education of 11 pupils from The Charity English Medium School in Arusha, Tanzania.
In addition to work in the UK to support individual children and young people with drive, talent and ambition, The Realising Dreams Foundation keen to find a project abroad that they could support and work with to improve young lives and educational opportunities.
Pledging £1900, the Foundation has marked the beginning of its partnership with the school.
Benefiting from this partnership are boys and girls between 8 and 11 years old, in Classes 3, 4 and 5. They are: Shiness Frederick, Fanuel Samwel, Aziza Daudi and Devotha Brayton of Class 3; Alen Edward and Julieth Sebastian of Class 4; and Derrick Joseph, Joseph, Edith Joel, Devis Tarimo and Adbuly Omary of Class 5.
These children have been chosen because Tanzanian pupils their age are often taken out of education to work and help their families.
Chair of The Realising Dreams Foundation Ron Burges explained: “I was very impressed by The Charity English Medium School in Tanzania. It was started by one inspiring local man – Moses Mollel – who shares our desire to provide kids with a better standard of education, including the chance to learn English. Together we want these pupils to be equipped to go on to realise their dreams.”
The Charity English Medium School Headteacher, Moses Mollel added: “There was such excitement at the school when parents heard the news of support from The Realising Dreams Foundation. We are extremely grateful for all their interest in support and are honoured they have chosen to help us.
“As our pupils get older, their families struggle to continue to pay for their education and they are at greater risk of being taken out of school by their parents to work. But I see the potential, so many of them are smart and capable of going on to choose their career own path.
“Sponsorship is a lifeline for our pupils and the best Christmas present these kids could get. We are excited to see what the future holds for our links with The Realising Dreams Foundation.”
