“Without MAD in my life, I never could have made it this far!”

- Edward

 

Edward’s Story

Edward was born in May of 1997. His parents died when he was four-years-old. After his parents died, his grandparents moved him to the village of Kirua to live with them. He had one brother who died when he was young. He also has one brother named Innocent who is one year younger than Edward. Life was hard for Edward before Make A Difference started helping him. Edward lived with his uncle who used to beat him after drinking. He was left hungry a lot.

Edward likes football and geography is his favorite subject. Edward's best experience with MADNow so far has been going to the ocean during a university tour.

Edward wants to be a loan officer specializing in agricultural loans for farming. He wants to help his country produce oil, mine minerals, and increase farming production in order to raise the Tanzanian economy. Edward is currently attending Sokoine University of Agriculture in Tanzania. He is scheduled to graduate in 2021 with his bachelors degree in agribusiness.

Consider helping Edward achieve his dreams by sponsoring him!

Make A Difference Now has been fully supporting Edward 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.
