£60raised of £1,500 target by 3 supporters

    Weʼve raised £60 to help fund a young girl who lives in Tanzania. All the money goes to her speech therapy and the maintaining of her hearing aids for 2 years.

    Maji ya Chai, Tanzania
    Funded on Monday, 28th November 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Mwajuma is 6 years old, a double orphan, deaf, and HIV positive. She lives at Seeway Tanzania (SWTz - www.swtz.org), a residential centre for children in Maji ya Chai, close to Arusha in northern Tanzania. She lives there with 19 other children.

    Mwajuma has the most amazing smile and laugh, and being around her always feels like a blessing.

    Mwajuma and the other kids at SWTz do get love and compassion from the caretakers, volunteers and administration. However each child is there for a reason. Mwajuma, although bright and healthy despite her HIV status, can not communicate. This of course hampers her education and prevents her from moving onto primary school from nursery.
    I ask for your help, any donation would go a long way towards helping her.

    It is my hope that by supporting Mwajuma by raising £1,500 GB she can maintain her hearing aids, attend follow-up clinics, and also attend sign language lessons so that she can learn to communicate effectively.

    £1,500 GB would cover the cost of TWO years of batteries, clinics, and go towards the cost of speech therapy/sign language clinics and resources, by which time we hope Mwajuma can graduate to primary school.

    The costs for two years are estimated as follows:
    1. Batteries: £70
    2. Six follow-up clinics in Dar es Salaam (travel, lodging, food, clinic): £990
    3. Speech therapy clinics/resources: £440 Total: £1,500

    I ask for your help - a donation of £10-£20 GB would go a long way towards helping Mwajuma.

    If you need some final assurance about how we can help change Mwajuma’s life for the better, I urge you to read an interview I conducted with Kanuti Shayo. Kanuti came from a background of poverty and his life changed thanks to SWTz http://laurensvanhetb.wixsite.com/kanutishayo

    She needs love AND support and we can do this for her!

    Justgiving is a great page because all donations are fast and secure. There is no unwanted email spam and all the money you donate goes directly to the charity.
