Hi everyone!

It has been quite a long time since I posted on my Blog. I am so excited I got the chance to add an entry today.

I am now on my holidays for a month and nine days! It is nice to be with my friends and the house moms here at the orphanage again.

We celebrated Mama Theresa’s wedding on the 29th of November. The wedding was great and I really had fun! I would like to congratulate on getting married. We love our Mama so much!

All thanks to God who has allowed us to see the end of this year 2014. Thanks to him for His love for us that we see around us every day.

I am so happy right now because I will soon leave for my village where I will get to see my relatives. I have really missed them.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Love you!

Hi  guys,

I am very glad to write to you again.

Today I am at the MAD guest house working on my blog with Neema, Deo and Revo. Also today we went to the airport to receive our visitors (volunteers) which are Sepand, Perrisa  and Farrell and we are very excited about them being here.

On 26 of April this year we had a trip to Tanga and we were seven people which are Mama Theresa, Courtney, Kunda (our driver), Neema, Christina and I. The trip was very enjoyable because we visited different places like the Beach Crab hotel in Pangani, Irente Farm in Lushoto, and two schools which are Rosmini secondary school and St.Christina girls’ secondary school. We really liked the trip.

On Saturday Neema and I we will be leaving for St. Christina girls’ school located in Tanga. We are very excited about that!!

Love you all!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi guys,

I am now looking forward to starting my advanced level secondary school education. I have been having fun with the kids at the orphanage and also helping them with their homework and reading. I help the Mama’s with cooking and cleaning when they need my assistance. They are fun, and I enjoy having a good time with them. Additionally, I have a good time with Neema, Revo and Deo at the house because we all have been together at the orphanage for a while now. We’ve been staying at the orphanage ever since we returned from Christmas and graduated from secondary school.

On the 3rd of February 2014 I started a computer class.  I was excited knowing that it will help increase my knowledge and understanding of computers. Also I am so proud to announce that I passed my form four exam. The results came out on the 21st of February this year. I was so thrilled that I passed and I can now continue on to my advanced level studies (the equivalent of 11th and 12th grade in the USA). I almost done with high school!

I was so proud of the recent volunteers who traveled from the USA to be with us for almost one week. We had an enjoyable time with them. Their names were Debbie, Nancy, Pat and Lyne. I real appreciated their company and I love them very much. Also I am so happy because our lovely Mama Theresa is back. She traveled to the United states of America, Idaho to see her family. I am very excited that you are back, Mama Theresa! Also kaka Erasmus did great work in getting me the application form to join advanced level education for two schools: St. Mary Goretti of Moshi and Rosmini of Tanga. I want say thank you to Mama Theresa and Kaka Erasmus for their love and care! 

much love to you all………..

My graduation day from secondary school!  My future looks bright thanks to MAD!

My graduation day from secondary school! It was a glorious moment. I will never forget it!

Hi everyone,

I am now on holiday for approximately the next seven months. I have just graduated from my ordinary levels education and i was so proud as i am stepping closer to my future dreams. I did my national examinations this year and i am hopping for excellent results next year. I was so proud of myself and felt very unique after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro this year because not very many Tanzanians have climbed this mountain. This made me very happy and i hope it will open way for most other Tanzanian girls to dream about climbing the mountain someday like i did. I got the certificate for climbing the highest mountain in Africa!

I often like to pray and preach the word of God because i believe he is my savior and i owe him my life.

I have a dream of opening up a 200 children orphanage in the future because most African children need help with a variety of thing: education, love, care etc. I believe this will help reduce the number of street children and orphans and hopefully it will restore some of their lost hopes.

In my future i would like to be a businesswoman with my own company and travel to different countries and continents.

Much Love to you all!

OMEGA

    Hi Omega, I am so proud of you for everything you’re done. Congratulations on completing secondary school and passing your test to go on to advanced level .It was a joy to meet you and spend time with you last month.
    Your passion for helping other Tanzanian children by having an orphanage is a wonderful goal and I know you will make it happen.
    I’ve learned something new about you through your blog… that you climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Bravo to you for that special achievement. I appreciate that you also want to show other girls that they can do it too. Yes they can… girls are strong, smart, bold, and just plain awesome!!!
    Until I see you again next winter, much love and many blessings to you.

    Hujambo Omega,
    Congratulations on starting your advanced level schooling! I hope you and Neema are thoroughly enjoying the experience. I wish you much success and know you will do well.

    I have a picture of you wonderful and beautiful young people on my Facebook page that I see many times a week. It’s such a nice reminder of our time together earlier this year. I’m looking forward to being in Tanzania the first part of the year and seeing all of you again.

    Love and blessings to you.

    Kweheri,
    Nancy Grant
