Help a great Tanzanian teacher complete university

Catherine was my housekeeper when I worked in Arusha, Tanzania between 2005 and 2008.  She came from extremely difficult and impoverished circumstances but showed incredible determination to improve herself and the life of her young son: soon after I left Arusha, Catherine completed her qualification as a primary school teacher.  She has thrived in that role ever since and is incredibly determined.

She is academically gifted and she is now also nearing completion of her Bachelor of Education degree at Arusha University. Her results so far are spectacular - virtually all As and A+s.  She has been managing to pay her fees entirely without assistance so far but has been hit hard by the pandemic, as many of us have.

She urgently needs funds to pay this semester's fees of Tsh 892,500 (just short of EUR 350).  I am helping out where I can but am currently on 50806266_1598698297529574_r.jpegfurlough and so any small contribution would be greatly appreciated.  Any funds raised in excess of this will go toward fees for her remaining two semesters.50806266_1598698231236584_r.jpeg50806266_159869826629075_r.jpeg
