Family and Community Background/History
I was born on the north coast of Tanzania. I am the last child of a pastor and we are of a poor economic status.
Why do you want to pursue this area of study?
I would like to study to be a doctor because I don’t like the community to suffer from diseases.
Why do you need sponsorship?
I need sponsorship because my parents do not have the ability to pay. God bless you, because I am able to study well without stress because of your support.
What will the impact be of your studies to you, your family and to your community?
For me, I will be much better mentally, physically and economically. This will mean that I can work well for the community. I will be able to help my family live well and have joy. My community will benefit as I will be able to serve them through health services and help prevent disease through education.

My Supporting Organisation
Berega Hospital, Tanzania
Berega Hospital is under the direction of the Anglican Diocese of Morogoro with capacity of 120 beds. The health services started in 1887, however the hospital was officially registered in 1929. The hospital is situated in a rural and poor area in Kilosa District of Morogoro Region of Tanzania.
The Berega Institute of Health Sciences (BIHS) was established to train quality nurses, clinical officers and more recently, pharmacists. Many of the graduates now work at the Berega Hospital, and significantly contribute to improving the health of people in this disadvantaged community. They are helping to reduce the significant mortality rates of women in pregnancy and of babies and children.
