Deo’s Story

Deo was born in Kirua, Tanzania in 1994. Both of his parents died when he was just five-years-old. Before he started receiving help from Make A Difference, he was living with his grandparents in Moshi. Unfortunately, they were unable to properly care for him as they needed help themselves. Deo was not given the opportunity to receive a proper education and often struggled to find enough food and clean water when he was living with his grandparents. 

Deo loves reading, playing football, and is a very talented artist. He graduated with honors from secondary school and was placed in one of Tanzania's best advanced level schools. He is currently attending Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada and is working on his undergraduate in biochemistry. He is expected to complete his bachelors in 2020 and is interested in pursuing a masters, of which he has been applying for scholarships to cover his tuition cost. To say we're proud of him would be an understatement. He is driven, intelligent, and we have no doubt he will accomplish his goals.

Sponsorship Provides

 
 

Consider helping Deo achieve his dreams by sponsoring him!

Make A Difference Now has been fully supporting Deo since 2005. Our goal is to help all of our students complete either a bachelors degree or technical program of their choice, so that they will not only survive, but thrive in life. Due to the added cost of continuing education our students often need assistance from multiple sponsors.
