It really has been an amazing year at Kisimani School in Tanzania, and a reminder (certainly to me) that hope prevails, and systemic change can happen, even if slowly. After 11 years, it truly feels like the vision this community had for their school has come to fruition, and will only continue to flourish from here.
With that, we are very excited to share incredible news that came out just last week…
big news --
Isn’t that astounding news? We started this school in partnership with the local community 11 years ago with the vision to bring equal opportunity education to local kids who were not attending school. To see the slow, but sustainable success unfold in this way has been not just rewarding, but truly inspiring. Kisimani has grown into the model school that they always aspired to be.
Please join me in congratulating our head teacher, Enock Laiser, our entire staff who work so tirelessly to support our students, and of course the newest graduates of Kisimani School who are continuing their education and off to make the impact they deserve to have the chance to make.
