“The support of MADNow has made me want to be a leader and help others.”

- Subirah

 

Subirah’s Story

Subirah was born in Kilototoni Himo, Tanzania in 1996. Her father Twalib died when she was only two years old and her mother Sofia also died when she was very young. Living in her home village was very difficult for Subirah as the conditions were challenging. Four people shared a bed with Subirah, she had no shoes and minimal clothing. She normally only ate one meal a day and in order to get water people in her village would wait for it to rain and collect the water, or would have to walk to the river. 

"Make A Difference means a lot to me because it’s changed my life since I was young until now. I understand myself more and they've helped me with my confidence through education. It has changed me from darkness of the world to brightness of the world. Thank you to my sponsors, MAD’s volunteers and board - everyone involved.”  - Subirah

Today, Subirah is a happy young lady full of smiles and laughter. She loves to lead singing with the children that Make A Difference Now supports. Subirah is currently attending KCMC School of Pharmacy in Tanzania to become a nurse. She will graduate as a nurse in September of 2019 and plans to continue her education to become a nurse anesthetist.  

“Right now I'm in nursing school. I love the thought of being a nurse because nursing is all about helping and saving people's lives and help them or assist in a peaceful death. I love the career I'm going into!" - Subirah

Sponsorship Provides

 

Consider helping Subirah achieve her dreams by sponsoring her!
