Eliona’s Story

Eliona was born in 1998. He had one older brother and sister but both died. His sister fell down from a tree and got a severe cut. She was taken to the hospital, but didn't survive. His brother died in his sleep, it may have been due to TB, but the cause was unclear other than he had been sick for a long time. Eliona goes by his grandfather's last name Manase, since his father is unknown. His mother Sifael also died, that is when he started living with his aunt who took care of him. Before MADNow started helping Eliona, the only meal he had daily was porridge for breakfast and he only had one pair of trousers and a shirt.

You can never be bored around Eliona, he is quite a character full of laughter and hugs, always smiling. He loves to dance and joke around.

He wants to become an accountant when he grows up and is off to a good start! He will be attending Moshi Cooperative University starting September 2019 and is expected to graduate with his bachelors in accounting in 2023.

Sponsorship Provides

 
 

Consider helping Eliona achieve his dreams by sponsoring him!

Make A Difference Now has been fully supporting Eliona 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 these children often need the support from multiple sponsors.
