Jonas’s Story

Jonas was born in 1998 in the village of Rombo. His mother's name was Maria and his father's name was Festo. He has one brother named Innocent who was born in 1996 and is also supported by MADNow. He has one sister named Magdelaina who was born in 1990; she lives with their grandmother. Jonas studies at the same boarding school as his brother, Innocent. They have two siblings who died. One died due to hunger and the other from AIDS. Jonas's mother and father have both died. His father died during Christmas in 2003. He doesn't remember when his mother died.

His best experience with MAD was going to Lake Challa. His favorite activities have been doing a ropes course in Moshi and improving his English.

Jonas has completed high school and has been accepted to Mweka College of African Wildlife in Tanzania. He is studying wildlife management and is excited to be able to take people out on safaris. He will complete his wildlife management training in September 2019 and will be able to act as a tour operator.

Sponsorship Provides

 
 

Consider helping Jonas achieve his dreams by sponsoring him! 

Make A Difference Now has been fully supporting Jonas 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.
