I am back from school for Christmas break. School reopens on the 10th of January so I will also get time to celebrate the first days of the year 2015 at home in the village with my relatives.
Today is my last day at the orphanage since we will all leave for our homes in the villages. I really miss my relatives and friends; I can’t wait to see them again. I am really excited right now.
I will be in grade 13 next year. Classes are hard but I am working so hard to achieve good grades.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2015.

I am in Moshi town at the MAD office with Omega, Deo and Revo working with Mama Theresa and Erasmus.
The good news is that we have been on a long holiday learning computer lessons near our orphanage in Himo. We have also been helping the younger children with their home work and reading.
Also my national exam results are out and I have done very well. I thank God for his help!
My ambition is to become an accountant if God wishes. I want to work with companies and handle their accounts and financial matters as a career.
The other thing is our mama (mother) Theresa is back home in Moshi. We warmly welcomed her yesterday and we were extremely happy to see her!
I have only a few days to complete my computer classes, after which school will begin.
LOVE YOU ALL!
One thing that is special about me is I am the only one out of all the children at Kilimanjaro Kids Care that has climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro! I climbed on the 23rd of June with seven volunteers from Make A Difference and Omega from the orphanage. We had a great time, but it was difficult and COOOOOOLD! It’s beautiful up there though, and I recommend everyone climb at least one day!
I believe that my success to reach the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro shows that I will be able to reach my goals in life! The Mountain was so gorgeous, and full of ice everywhere!
A few questions I have for you!
1. Have you ever climbed Mount Kilimanjaro?
2. If you haven’t climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, would you like to? What about with Make A Difference?
3. If yes, you have, what did you like most about it?
4. Did you reach the top like I did?
5. If you’ve never climbed a mountain that is high, what are some of the challenges you have faced in your life and how have you overcome them?
Thanks! Please write back soon!

This is Neema Antony! I am so happy to report that I graduated from secondary school this month! Thank you for all your support, prayers and encouragement! It was an incredible day and I am so excited about my future.
Right now I am on holiday. I’ll be on holiday until April or May of 2014. Advance levels start late. I can’t believe I only have two more years before I finish my schooling at secondary school. My dream is to go on to college. I’d like to be an accountant because they make money, and I am quite good at math! MAD has been helping me a lot, but I have to work hard.
What are your dreams? What about your goals? Write me!
Besides doing better in my studies, I am willing to help out in the kitchen and always ready to learn more!
I am back at home from school for a week holiday .
I am so happy to meet Mama Macrina, Mama Magdalena our house mams and other kids who graduated from Royal school.
