Gift’s Story

Gift was born in 2000 in Marangu near Kilimanjaro (Africa's highest mountain) in Tanzania. His father passed away, his mother is still alive, but struggles to get by. He visits with her during the holidays. Gift has a unique challenge due to his health condition, he has epilepsy, which has been a constant struggle. We are regularly keeping an eye on him so he can stay healthy and strong.

An unfortunate accident happened to Gift when he was visiting his village in the spring of 2019. He had a seizure while cooking over a fire and was found in the fire. He is recovering in a hospital in the Kilimanjaro Region. Recovery from the severe burns (his back down to his knees), as well as, one of his hands will take quite a bit of time to heal. He will be in the hospital for at least three months. We have been raising money to pay for his medical care, daily meals, and water, which hospitals don’t provide in Tanzania. 

Gift is a gift! He is a very cheerful young man, who loves to laugh, play games, and enjoy life as much as possible! He also has an impressive photographic memory. He just graduated from secondary school and despite everything we still feel he has the potential for a bright future ahead. As of this moment, Gift wants to become a graphic designer.

Sponsorship Provides

 
 

Consider helping Gift achieve his dreams by sponsoring him!

MAD has been fully supporting Gift 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.
