Hello everyone!

I hope you are all fine. I am very fine and things are ok here in Tanzania.

I am now on holiday and I am looking forward to having a fine Christmas this December and a happy new year 2015. I will go home (in my village) on the 7th of this December; I will have my Christmas and first days of the year 2015 there.

I will be in grade nine in the coming year and it is this time when we get to do the National Exams. Jonas (my brother) and I are actually in the same grade!
Mama Theresa had her wedding on November 29th. We really celebrated and had so much fun. The wedding was colorful.

I wish  you all a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year 2015.

Hi everyone!!

Now we are with mama Theresa here in Tanzania. We are glad that she has come back safely. Today we were doing shopping with mama Theresa and Frank for school items. Now we are preparing to go back to school and we are so sad to be saying goodbye to our brother Erasmus at the orphanage this evening(:. On the 26th of August we went to to the waterfalls here in Kilimanjaro, it was so fun we learned about ALS challenge and swam!.

Hi everyone!

I am now attending Royal Secondary School as a boarding student. My school is for both girls and boys. It is my eighth grade now and I am working harder than the other terms in school.  I am now number five out of nineteen students in our class of 78 students. I am doing well in most of my classes now. My favorite subjects are Physics, Chemistry and Maths.  I really enjoy attending them. I love spending time in the laboratory doing experiments! The total number of the subjects I take is 9.

Right now I am on holiday. We closed the school on the 3rd of April. I am just beginning the one-month long holiday and I am enjoying it. The school will be open on the 4th of May. I miss my friends already.

On the 9th of April, I celebrated my birthday. It was awesome. I rode bicycles with my friends at the orphanage in Himo. I am now waiting for the big Easter holiday to come along. We will have fun obviously. I am now in the MAD guest house in Moshi Town. We painted the house yesterday and we are expecting to go out for swimming in the afternoon. Only if it  stops raining though.

Next week I will go back to my village and i am so excited to meet my relatives again back in the village, i will get to tell them about all I have been up to lately and so much more. While in the village I will particularly enjoy helping out my relatives with gardening, farming and cattle keeping. I like playing football and riding bicycle with my friends while at the orphanage.

My name is Innocent.  I’m in class seven at Royal Primary School in Himo. My favorite subjects are Maths and Science because I want to be an Engineer. When I have nothing to do I like reading and reviewing my class notes because I want to go to good secondary school and university later.

I was born  in Rombo district in Kilimanjaro. I have three brothers and four sisters. I spend my holiday in December with my relatives in my village.

Something I want to do is climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. When I grow up I would like to give others education as a gift. My favorite experience was touring the National Park. When I went for Safari I saw Giraffe (I love Giraffe), Elephant, Zebra, Monkey, etc
