Joseph’s Story

Joseph was born in 1999 in Mamba Marangu. He has a brother, Peter, who MADNow starting helping after a home visit. His brother lived out in the banana trees alone and was starving when he got him. Joseph's mother and father are both dead due to AIDS. After his mother died he lived with his grandparents (his mother's parents). He shared a small cot with his grandfather. His grandmother was very abusive and used to beat him. She never let him go to school because she wanted him to feed the animals and clean for her. He never had much of an opportunity to go to school nor play before being supported by MADNow.

Joseph loves rope courses and learning English. His best experience with MADNow was the chance to ride horses.

Joseph would like to become an automotive engineer. He has begun training at Arusha Technical School to learn the automotive trade. Once he completes the automotive training he would then like to continue on to complete his automotive engineering degree at the University of Dar es Salam, in Tanzania.

Sponsorship Provides

 
 

Consider helping Joseph achieve his dreams by sponsoring him!
