Words of Thanks

“Today I will have a proper sleep.”

 

Head of School, Irkisongo Girls High School

 

These are the faces and voices of gratitude from Tanzania this Thanksgiving.  Earlier this year, as schools were reopening, there was anxiety and uncertainty from Heads of Schools.  How would they keep all their students and staff, not just Kisa Project and Binti Shupavu Scholars, at their crowded schools safe as they came back from many locations?  Girls Livelihood and Mentorship Initiative (GLAMI) responded quickly by providing handwashing stations, liquid soap, sanitizer, and thermometers.  AfricAid is proud of the effort that GLAMI made so that girls could get back to the business of learning and leading.

‘’Thank you so much for the two tanks that you have supported us with.  You have considered our school in that we have classes that are far apart from each other. We look forward to these tanks to help Scholars take precautions on COVID-19 while at school. And, thank you too for the academic support that you have been supporting to Scholars while at home. Pass our sincere appreciation to the whole team of GLAMI.’’

“Please pass my gratitude to the GLAMI administration – the school is very grateful for the support. The two hand washing stations will cover so many students. The tanks will be stationed at the main entrance to be used when students arrive in the morning. We have many students, so 1,000 liters of water is easier compared to when they were using buckets which were required to be filled with water every few minutes.”

“Today I will have a proper sleep, knowing the girls will be safe when they return back to school. We will have more stations for them to clean their hands at any time. Please pass my sincere gratitude to the top management of GLAMI and your sponsors as well.”

“Thank you for thinking of the girls, especially during this difficult time. With the little funds we get from the government, I wouldn’t be able to purchase all of this equipment. Your assistance will help not only the girls, but also the teachers and other staff within the school.”

“Ooooh my, you guys are so helpful! I was wondering how we would get a second thermoscan, as as we only had one and it’s not enough for our whole school of 700+ students.”

Majengo Secondary School

 

“Kisa is a great project. You guys keep on thinking about us! Last year, your Scholars built the notice board at our school and now we have a quick response toward COVID-19 with handwashing buckets. As the head of school, I really appreciate your support – blessings to the whole team and management!”
