Hi guys
Now I am at Royal school in a boarding session.I am very happy to be in form two and the boarding school makes me excited. I am still going on to my dreams of being a good international doctor(surgeon). And now my favorite subjects are mathematics, chemistry,physics,biology and geography. The last term I was number 1 student in my class and I still wish to be the number one student in the country(Tanzania)in my form two national examination.
In our school (royal) we are going to start computer studies, in which I am very happy for that. It has been two years since we stopped studying computer.I will make sure I learn a lot in the computer lesson to have a good understand on the computers.
Today is a very special day in Royal school where parents visit their children who studies in Royal school. With the presence of sister Grace and Bibi Nancy made this day more special.They brought us peanuts from Piña and I am happy that piña makes good things for us.
Before I forget this, we had a trip to “MANYARA”, I had a wounderful time with my friends. On our way to “MANYARA” we passed through Arusha, there we saw a wounderful mountain called “Mt. Meru” and finally we arrived at “MANYARA national park” we saw lots of animals like elephants, giraffe and monkeys, I love baby monkeys:) they are so funy how they climb trees.
I will write back to you soon.

Thank you so much


Hi all!

This is another holiday away from school and I am very happy because I ranked number one in my class!

Mama Theresa just got married to a strong Indian man (Vivek) and I am so so happy for both of them.

Here is another event that made me happy: We visited International School Moshi yesterday where we met new friends and spent the entire afternoon with them. We swung and played football and basketball. We also did swim in the school swimming pool. We played this sport in the water where we had two teams playing against the other. Each team tried to score through the opponent’s goal. It was pretty much like football only we had to use hands for holding the ball and the whole thing was in water. My team lost L. We, however, worn in football 5-3!



I am so happy that we are opening school soon and I will see my friend whom I’ve missed so much, last term I had so much fun with my friends at school.

I was the 3rd person out of 20 students this term I had an average mark of 78%. I want to be the 1st student in my class. I will archivemy goal by studying hard and improving in subjects which area challenge to me (Maths and Physics).

All the best

Hello everyone,

I am now in secondary school! It is really fascinating. My school’s name is Royal Primary and Secondary School. It is actually the very school I went last year for my primary education. I have been making a lot of new friends there since the year started. Life in boarding school is very cool. I enjoy staying with my friends all day long. I still love soccer and we have a wonderful soccer team. My favorite classes are Chemistry and Biology. I love them. We had exams recently and I manage to rank  number 3 out of 19 students.

Back before January this year, I visited my family in the village. I was so happy seeing my friends and relatives whom I hadn’t seen for a very long time, probably a year! During Christmas, I attended church with my friends and my brother Christopher. We had a very good day after the Holy Mass  that morning. I love December!

I am now on holiday. My school closed a few days ago. I am having a wonderful time with everyone at the orphanage in Himo. We play together and have a lot of fun together. I spend most of my time revising the things we learnt in school. Sometimes I read story books or even hang around with my friends at the house. Today I am with Revo and Upendo in MAD office in Moshi town working on my Blog. I expect to be in Himo late this evening.

I am looking forward to becoming a doctor in the future. I love doctors! I hate seeing people get sick and no one is there to help them.

We will be opening the school on the 5th of May. I will make sure I take over position 1 in the class! I will use this time to cover all that  wasn’t clear in my classes. I am expecting to do and learn a lot of new things while on holidays. We are expecting a group of volunteers from Salesforce  and so many others who are coming over next month!



Below are my exam results for secondary school:

Class Term1 Term2 Term3 Rank1 Rank2 Rank3
Civics 88
History 69
Geography 79
Kiswahili 76
English 69
Physics 55
Chemistry 75

Our grading scale: 81-100 =A, 61-80=B, 41- 60 =C, 31-40=D


Today is my first day working on my blog and I am very excited to be doing so. I just graduated from my primary education at the Royal school and I am waiting to join secondary education early next year. On this holiday I am expecting to go back to my village where I will get to see my relatives again and help out my grandmother with various chores at the house. I will enjoy spending time with my grandmother while at home as she often tells stories, she is a good storyteller.11/29/2014

I love playing soccer very much and i play nearly all the time, my favorite field position is always number 9. While on the field, my friends usually call me “short man” because i often look shorter than normal while on the field.

Check out my exam results from school for terms one and two for the year 2013. Results for term 3 are yet to come out early next year.

Here is our grading scale by the way: 81-100 =A, 61-80=B, 41- 60 =C, 31-40=D

MATH 63 56 C
CIVICS 56 70

Benny is quite the little soccer player. He is so fast and has great ball handling skills. When volunteers Charlie and Spud came to play soccer with the MAD kids, Benny was a force to be reckoned with!
