Update Fall 2018
The second semester in the schools of Mtwara/Tanzania has started and the 33 youth that Holmquist Foundation is supporting has returned to continue their studies. 21 of them are still in secondary school. They are all young teenagers that in many cases has a 1 hour walk to school, but walks happily because going to school is nothing you take for granted ans is their way to a better life. 11 of the 33 that we support this year thanks to all of you, have finished secondary school with grades good enough to continue with vocational training and college. The vocational programs are sponsored by Reforce Entrepreneurship for youth and the VETA school that runs the vocational training is helping their students to connect to local companies in Mtwara region to help them getting a jobb after graduation. We have three more more months to go until funding of next years students starts so BIG THANKS to all of you and hoping for your support the next year as well.
