Tanzania / ELIZABETH


Elizabeth is 14 years old and was born in the Njombe region of Tanzania where she lived with her mother and her 4 siblings. Elizabeth moved to Dar es Salaam to live with her uncle 3 years ago so that she could attend school more regularly since when she has made great progress, moving from 74th in class when she arrived to now regularly being in the top 10. Elizabeth wishes to become a teacher to help adults and people with special needs that cannot read and write just because they didn’t get opportunities to attend to school. She wants to be able to continue her education at Secondary School and is hoping that someone will sponsor her so she can continue to pursue her dream of becoming a teacher.
