ACT Training In Dar es Salaam

Jambo everyone!!

I am now back in Himo, at the orphanage after a three weeks stay in Dar es salaam where I had to go for my ACT training classes. Everybody here at the orphanage is great and I am having a wonderful time. Some of the children however are away at boarding schools. Right now we are with MAD’s volunteers: Lucy and Marisa, brother Erasmus, Frank and Grace who are helping us with updating our blogs and setting up to Skype call with our sponsors.

A few days ago we had three visitors: Harry, Mark and Julia. They came to teach us about leadership. The programme was super fun and quite educational!. We learned about service and self leadership, how to realize our potentials and how to create new habits.

My stay in Dar es salaam was cool, while I was there I stayed at the hostels with my brother (Novatus) that goes to the university of Dar es salaam. I had to go to the ACT training center everyday except for Sundays and Mondays. It was a little difficult to answer the ACT practice questions in the beginning but they got easier and easier with time. I learned a lot of new thing while there and also I met and made some new friends.

Hopefully I will be starting my D1 year of college at the international school of Moshi this August. I am very excited about it and I still cant believe that I may actually be going there, I really like this school and I am so grateful to whoever will have made it a possibility if I actually end up going there!!

Tutoring in Himo

Hi everyone

How are you all doing?

Two weeks ago I started my holiday. I am having a lot of fun because I get time to spend with other kids at Himo. Also I get time to do my homework.

Today is 16/06/2014. I have started my tutoring in Himo. I am learning Mathematics, Physics and chemistry. This is because I have problems in those subjects.

I am spending time with Revo in Himo. He is helping me with school homework before he leaves for his village.

In this holiday I got a chance to go to visit a ranch. The ranch is called Ndaraqwai. I really enjoyed it!

At The Office

Hi Everyone,

Right now I am in Moshi at the office with Mama Theresa and the other volunteers. I have already been on holiday for two weeks. I started being tutored this Monday at a center known as Hope Academy Center. Today was my first day there; it is really cool being there and the teachers are teaching very well. I am really enjoying holiday especially spending time with the other kids at the orphanage. During this holiday we on a safari at Ndarakwai where we saw different animals.
