Below is an update from the Tanzanian Children's Fund. We're excited to share that Jackie is being afforded the best education available!
Jackie has started Form 4. He is now at Mariado Secondary School in Arusha. Mariado is an excellent school, and we are ensuring Jackie the best education possible. He is excited to start at a new school and make new friends. Ever gregarious and affable, Jackie makes friends wherever he goes. He is looking forward to the next step after Secondary School, and is preparing diligently for the Form 4 National Exam so that he may have the option to choose what that next step might be: Form 5&6, teachers college, nursing school, or otherwise!
After a busy year, Jackie is coming to the end of his 3rd year at Secondary School - Form 3. Next year he will sit the all important Form 4 national exam that will determine his eligibility to continue higher education. Be that Form 5&6, teachers college, nursing school or something different!
Jackie, is an incredibly friendly and positive young man. He really looks up to older boys, including volunteers and had fun practicing/perfecting English with some of our volunteers recently over the Christmas break!
Jackie along with his peers from Eagle's Nest were the envy of the entire RVCV family on Christmas day. The boys performed some rather exceptional dance moves to the beat of some popular Tanzanian tunes... they even got called back for an encore! It was a really fun day and so nice to see the kids enjoying themselves!
Jackie is a fun loving young man, you will rarely catch him without him flashing his pearly whites! Jackie's a big soccer fan; just recently he along with his entire house--Eagle's Nest--played the local league team of the Crater Giants (named such as we are located a stone's throw from Ngorongoro Crater National Park). Jackie loves music and can often be found relaxing with his headphones on, listening to his favorite CD!
