Peter’s Story

Peter was born in the village of Mamba in 2002. He is our youngest boy. His parents both died of AIDS and are buried in his grandparents front yard. His grandmother was abusive and never let him go to school because she wanted him to help feed the animals and clean. Because of the abuse, Peter ran away from home and raised himself. He used to search for food during the day and sleep alone at night in a banana field. Make A Difference Now enrolled Peter in school for the first time in 2008 with the help of a wonderful sponsor from Canada who was still trying to finish college. Peter attends boarding school with his brother Joseph who MADNow also helps. He loves to play and laugh. His favorite activity is to go swimming with volunteers and his best experience with MADNow was going to Lake Challa near the border of Kenya.

Peter is attending Uru Secondary School in Moshi, Tanzania and will graduate in 2019. He plans to attend university to become a lawyer! He is expected to graduate in 2024.

Sponsorship Provides

 

Consider helping Peter achieve his dreams by sponsoring him!

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.
