Meet Juma Amani, an incredible high school graduate from rural Tanzania. Juma grew up an orphan living below the poverty line. We at Jiamini https://jiamini.org/ started working with Juma when he was in 7th grade (see the photos!), our financial support enabled him to continue his basic education.
In the six years since we met Juma he's applied himself fully to his education. He's consistently at the top of his class and a leader to his peers. One of the most dedicated kids I've ever worked with.
Juma was recently accepted to Maharishi Institute, a college in South Africa. Only around 3% of students in Tanzania make it to university. Going to school outside of the country is almost unheard of, especially for a boy from Newala, coming from Juma's circumstance. This is truly an incredible opportunity.
Maharishi Institute has offered Juma a full scholarship. We're hoping to raise the $4,500 needed to cover his living expenses, school supplies and travel for the year. His experience at Maharishi Institute will be a turning point in his future, opening doors a kid like him could never have imagined possible.
All contributors to this campaign will receive updates from Juma showing you the experience you've made possible. Thank you for your support in helping Juma realize his dreams!
