Comments Off on Benjamin Triumphs Over Adversity
Today, November 20th Benjamin Martin receives his Bachelors of Art degree in Education. In May 2003 close to completing primary school standard seven in Korogwe, Tanzania, Benjamin lost his father.
The family was totally dependant on his fathers income
as a peasant farmer. That December the final school exam results came out and he was top in his class, but with no funds he could not go to secondary school. A year later his cousin Rev Archi told his mother about the work ACT was doing in Tanga, so Benjamin moved to be with his cousin in Tanga to be supported by ACT. He completed secondary school in 2010 and got a place at university of Tanorah. Today we rejoice as another student supported by ACT achieves their potential, this would not be made possible with out YOU, our supporters, Thank you!
