“Without the help of MAD, I wouldn’t be in school. I would be married with children as a teenager.”

- Upendo

Upendo's name means "Love" in Swahili and she is full of it! Upendo is always smiling and laughing. She was born in 1999 and raised in the village of Same. Her mother's name was Stella and her father's name was Elliabu. Both of Upendo's parents died when Upendo was very young. Upendo is the youngest of four children and has three brothers. Her best experience with MAD was going to the TPC sugar factory for an educational trip to visit a local business to see how it operates. She likes swimming and history is one of her favorite subjects. Upendo is very mature for her age and would like to be a doctor when she grows up! She wants to visit Idaho to see where Mama Theresa was born and her dream for her country is to care and educate other children like her in Tanzania.

Read Upendo's Blog for updates on her grades, recent activities, items she received from MAD, and goals for the future.

Consider helping Upendo achieve her dreams by helping sponsor her! Upendo is currently attending Teresa of Calcutta, an all girls' school. She will graduate from secondary school the Fall of 2019, attend advance level school from 2020 to 2022 and then go to college.
