In February, 2013, I visited one secondary school in spearheading the programme SOMESHA MTOTO MMOJA- A project which aims at identifying deprivedstudents looking for financial support, and linking them with Tanzanians who have been blessed in one way or the other and are able to pay for tuition fees just for one student. My analysis is that school fees do not exceed Tshs 150,000 per annum in a government school setting. Which means, your TSHS 12,500 saving per month (Or just TSHS 400 per day) will at the end of the day change the life of your fellow Tanzanian,his/her family and the nation as a whole.The school that I visited is found in Morogoro, in an area which is bordered by a college and also a boys’high school, which for a number of years, have led to social interactions/relationships between boy/male students and female from the neighborhood.
As a consequence, many children were born while their fathers had already graduated fromschool/college and leaving them under care of mothers only. Very unfortunately,this led to their mothers heartbreaking away to rummage around for such thingto earn a living and that now most students are taken care by their grandparents who are not even able to feed their families leave alone paying school fees.
I asked the school to submit only ten names of students of the worst cases scenario so that we start supporting them. So far, SOMESHAMTOTO MMOJA Program has supported three students.Our approach: ONCE WE IDENTIFY A NEEDY STUDENT, ANY IF YOU,AS A SPONSOR COME IN, YOU WILL BE GIVEN THE CONTACT OF THE SCHOOL OR THE FAMILYSO THAT SCHOOL FEES GO DIRECT TO THE SCHOOL OR THE PARENT.
Narrated Below, are the ten names looking for your well-regarded support; the amount we are asking from you is only TSHS 139,000 per year for the students who are in Form One and Tshs 116,000 for students who are in FormTWO and above…..We are now asking foryour only Tshs 60,000/= So that we pay school fees for the first term and without your support students will drop out of studies only because they cannot afford to pay 119,000/=, 0r 139,000 as annual payment. Once we get ten people as supporters, we shall launch a special SOMESHA MTOTO MMOJA programme so that we make it a countrywide programme.
