een veilige plek waar ze kind kunnen zijn

student Allan

My name is Allan Judika Mmari, 23 years  old. I am a first born in a family of three children. I have my  young sisters, Lucy who came after me and Happy who is a last one. Before we were living with our parents in  Siha Destrict Kilimanjaro region and we were happy even though our family was poor. In a terrible manner our family separated due to misunderstanding between our parents. Our father runout of the family and our mother get married to another man and we were lefted with our grandmother on fathers side. At this time me and Lucy were allready reaching the age of education but there was no one to take us to school. We were left as street children, depending on our grandmother who failed even to provide us our daily basic needs.
One day our aunt from Arusha came to the village and this is where my journey to Happy Watoto in Kikatiti started. Me and Lucy were taken to Happy Watoto and Happy was taken to Good Hope. Our first visiti to Happy Watoto  was great, as I saw my fellow childrens playing together, worshiping together, studying together with the aid of matrons, patrons and teachers.

Happy Watoto took us to ChemChem Primary school, a public school nearby the Kikatiti home. In 2010 I finished my primary school and was send to a private boarding schools for the aim of getting good and quality education. I my case to Moringe Sokoine Secondary School in Monduli Arusha. I was there from 2011 to 2014 and received my certifecate for O(rdinary)-level education. With the financial support of Happy Watoto I was accepted by the government to continue for A(dvanted) Level. 2015 to 2017 I spent at JK Nyerere High School in Songwe and received my certficate for A-level with devision 2 which made me fit for undergraduate studies at the University of Dar es Salaam.

Thanks Happy Watoot for your greta effort . Without you I could never reach this and for sure you've made my dream come true.  For now i have set my plans to involve in various intrepreneurship events at university and innovative- and research programmes during my studies in order to be able to face the challenge of unemployment in our country. Also I have a future plan one day to work  as UN Urgent in promoting justice and human rights, especialy childrens and women, food security, gender equality, environmental conservation, effective utilization of natural resources and other issues that hinder Sustainable Development in Africa and worldwide. May allmight God be with me.

Thanks for your attention and God bless you all.
Sincerely yours,
Allan J. Mmari
