Julieth’s story

For teaching student Julieth, who was orphaned from a young age, your support is making her dream possible. Her parents, both teachers, died when she was in Year 4, and from that day, becoming a teacher has been her goal.

Julieth is a student at the Mamire Teachers’ College in Tanzania, the hub of our Education Collaborative. She juggles her studies and making her college fee payments with raising her three younger siblings, knowing that education is the key to a brighter future for all of them.

Julieth is thriving at the College, meeting students from all over Tanzania who are just as hopeful and grateful as she is. Julieth is currently achieving a Credit average, just 0.2 marks shy of a Distinction. She loves science, English and Geography and will graduate in May.
