What a way to say good-bye to summer and kick off a new school year…the girls enjoyed a special day visiting the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. With expert safari guide, Maggie, the girls learned about some of Tanzania’s most precious resources: the National Parks and the wildlife that inhabit them. A long time in coming…this had been an excursion the girls looked forward to for a year!
But now…it is time to return to school! As you may recall, last year the girls enrolled in St. Margaret’s Academy. It was an exciting time…meeting new friends, new uniforms, and broadening their learning. Some subjects came easily, some more challenging.
At St. Margaret’s all subjects are taught and tested in English, providing the girls with an advantage in continuing education beyond primary levels. This has been a big jump and learning curve for them. To support the girls with their studies, we’ve added a tutor to our staff in Tanzania. Helen works with the girls after school 5 days a week. She helps to reinforce their studies…whether practicing English, understanding math problems, or learning about world geography. And, she makes sure to provide special one-on-one time with each of the girls, too.
With your monthly support, we are able to provide these girls with the most important basic needs of clean water, shelter and nutritious food, but also these life-changing educational opportunities.
