Shaban’s Story

Shaban was born in 1998 in Kilototoni near Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. Shaban grew up in a Muslim home with his father and mother, sadly his father has died. His mother sells vegetables on the side of the road and earns barely enough to provide for herself. MADNow also supports Shaban's younger brother Juma and his older cousin Subirah

Shaban is a great student and a top performer in his class! He loves school, enjoys reading, and learning about civics. His best experience with MADNow is when he ran a 5k with Mama Theresa (the director of MADNow) along with some of the other children MADNow supports who also enjoy running. 

Shaban is currently attending KCMC School of Pharmacy in Tanzania. He is expected to graduate in 2021 as a pharmacist. He wants to help his community improve their health, especially those in the rural areas who lack medical services and access to medicine.

Sponsorship Provides

 
 

Consider helping Shaban 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.
