Today Itatu received a $300 donation from a generous man in Port Rowan Ontario. Thank you to my parents for believing in the work that we do and for spreading the passion. You support and that that stems from you is greatly appreciated.
The girls are doing well. They are now in their second term of the school year and are strong, healthy and happy thanks to the kindness of those here in Canada who understand the value of educating girls.
Today a Christmas package containing donated items for the Itatu girls was shipped. It will arrive in Malawi in a week’s time so that the girls will receive the items before Christmas. This year’s box contains socks, underwear, toothbrushes, pens, pencils, erasers and candy canes for the girls. I also sent a few books and photos for friends. I am glad we have a friend who can send the package at a reduced rate. It’s still expensive but I know the girls love getting the items. It’s worth it to me to know they have a special day.
Annie has been sponsore by an Ontario family to attend secondary school. She is presently in form 3, or grade 11 and has written the letter below to her sponsor family.
I would like to inform you on how my exams went on. I have wrritten my Junior Certificate of Examinations in the month of June and I have all the hope that I will pss and go to Senior level.
I would also like to tell you about the results of second term exams which was mock. I have passed but the grades are not pleasant. I found difficult especially in mathematics. I used to practise solving with my friends during weekends but I find it difficult too. The problem is the exchange of teachers. For example, last term we had three mathematics teachers. Each teacher might come and teach on the topics wich he or she knows. We didn’t have a special maths teacher.
Although this happened I hope I will pass.
Lastly, I send my greetings to you, your children and grandchildren. May God bless you all.
