Preparing for National Exams

Hello everyone!

I had a short holiday for two weeks and during that time I went to the village to see my grandmother. Three days ago I came to the MAD guesthouse and am preparing to leave for school this morning.

When I return to school I will be doing tuition (tutoring) for two weeks to prepare me for national exams which will be on November 2nd. My easiest subject are geography and biology. The hardest ones are physics and mathematics. The national exams are really important because it gives me the opportunity to go to the advanced level of studies.

I’m excited about graduation on November 14th. While I was at the guesthouse I shopped for clothes for graduation.

Thank you to Mama Theresa, my sponsors, and donors who provide me with my basic needs and education.

Love to all



New Secondary School


This is my first holiday from my new secondary school that is called Mother Theresa of Calcuta. The teachers there are really good and they also teach very well compared to the other secondary schools which I was at before and those are called Mairiva and Mount Kilimanjaro Secondary School Mama Theresa works so hard so that we can go to a great school and get a good education but it’s very hard to go to a great school that teaches well because it’s very expensive. The subjects are very hard and I am working all the time so that I can do well on my exams and reach my goals. Our holiday is one month and two weeks, so I will go back to school on July 12th and I will be at school until December. That will be our next holiday. So I spend more time in school than at home and our school has only two holidays in a year.
