Esther’s Story

Esther is in the 11th grade at the International School of Moshi (ISM) for diploma studies (International Baccalaureate). Despite her family struggling financially, they have always encouraged her to go to school and work hard. Her dream was to join an International School for science studies as she wants to be an Engineer.  

International schools in Tanzania are much more expensive than local private schools. Esther has parents but their combined wages are less than $300 a month. Her father repairs tractors and her mother is a small scale farmer. Additionally, her father being the oldest son in a family of twelve has to take care of the family in terms of providing basic needs. Esther also has five siblings and they all lived as an extended family. In order to make her dream happen, Esther applied for scholarships to fund her studies and was lucky to be funded by both MAD and ISM. Esther loves reading, drawing, and assisting others. 

Esther attended the International School Moshi (ISM) for an International Baccalaureate diploma for two years and graduated with her diploma in May of 2019.  She will be joining the Edinburg University in Scotland in 2019. She wants to become either an Engineer or an Economist.

Sponsorship Provides

 
 

Consider helping Esther achieve her dreams by sponsoring her!

Esther joined MADNow’s program on August 2017 and we have been supporting her since. 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.
