We first met Daudi when he was 15 – he was living with his mother and 3 siblings in a small mud hut in Mtwara.  Daudi was struggling to attend school as his mother could not afford the fees or uniform – also the school was some distance away and the family could not afford transport.  Daudi’s older sister dropped out of school at the age of 13 to help their mother grow crops and care for her siblings. 

Thanks to EdUKaid donors Daudi was able to attend school and complete his education.  They funded Daudi’s fees, uniform and resources as well as providing a bicycle for him to get to school.  Daudi worked hard and achieved great results which meant he could go on to further education.  Daudi wanted to become a doctor so that he could eventually work with sick children and make their lives better – EdUKaid donors have continued to support Daudi through medical school.  10 years on, Daudi has completed 3 years of training and is now undertaking his first clinical placement in Ligula Hospital close to where he grew up.   

Daudi told us “without EdUKaid donors I would have faced many problems - I thank EdUKaid for your support and my dreams are coming true”. 

Please donate now or if you'd rather fundraise, we have lots of ideas to help you along.
