On Friday, January 27th,  great friends came together to celebrate Darren’s birthday. Darren has been a long time supporter of Dreaming For Kids, both raising funds and mentoring our team to execute successful events. Naturally, Darren’s birthday bash was a great success. Instead of gifts, Darren’s request was to help raise $375 for our sponsorship fund. These efforts were for our newest recipients, Janet, Prisca, and Aloisi’s room and board for the year. We are overwhelmed and so grateful to everyone who helped raise $720 in one night! This impact has provided room and board, as well school shoes to all five of our sponsorship recipients Amiri, Swaif, Aloisi, Janet, and Prisca!  Darren, through the years you have helped us raise over $2,200 covering two kids’ tuition for the year. Words cannot express how grateful we are. On behalf of the DFK team, thank you for providing the best gift anyone could ask for; an education.

Welcoming Janet, Prisca & Aloisi to Edmund Rice

Thanks to all of your generous support, we have had another successful year!!  This year three additional children from Good Hope Orphanage have had the opportunity to graduate from elementary school, including Janet and Prisca, the first girls to graduate and become recipients of our Sponsorship program. They along with Aloisi will join Amiri and Swaif at Edmund Rice Sinon Secondary School! These students from Arusha, Tanzania — all five of Good Hope’s graduates— would have little ability to attend secondary school without your generous donations. Asante sana! That’s Swahili for “thank you very much!”
