We are raising money to sponsor students at DCT Mvumi Secondary School, located in central Tanzania. We function under the auspices of a British Charity, the Mvumi School Trust. As Trust Representatives we are volunteers who oversee the sponsorship programme. The Mvumi School Trust has a bank account in the nearest town of Dodoma, which is one and a half hours drive away on a dusty, bumpy road.

Thank you for the donations from October 2017 to August 2018. Using the $545 and other gift money, we raised enough to support a boarding students to go to Pre-Form 5 (March - May) and First Term Form 5 (July - December). He comes from a small village some way away, his mother is a subsistence farmer and dad is not in the picture. They live in a mud house, with no running water or electricity. He is doing well at school and is the Prefect in charge of food.

We are now fundraising for his 2019 fees. (Starting from the $545 raised last year)
