Supplies for Losirwa graduates going on to boarding school
Friends of Meali provides a secondary school scholarship program.
Cost: about $250 for each child.
In keeping with our philosophy of “giving a boost” to the community, Friends of Meali provides a secondary school scholarship program that pays all the school fees for the first year (Form I) for students who pass their National Exams. Secondary school is now mandatory in Tanzania, if you pass the exam, and “free”. Friends of Meali has been helping out with the first year expenses of two uniforms, shoes, boots, back pack, lunch money, text book purchases and note books. Some students are assigned to boarding schools so Friends of Meali also supply a mattress and some other sundries.
The Result : 100% of those accepted are now attending secondary school, and start on day one, for at least one year and a higher proportion are returning for Forms II, III, and IV. Cost: about $250 for each child.
