In 2009 Lameck was struggling to remain in school.  His family had worked really hard to get him through primary school but they just couldn't afford the ongoing costs of keeping him secondary school - life was looking pretty grim.

I dream to get a good job that will enable me to solve my problems and help my family from poverty

When we first met Lameck he told us his dream was 'to get a good job that will enable me to solve my problems and help my family from poverty' - a simple and selfless dream that seemed completely out of reach to Lameck.

Thanks to EdUKaid Child Sponsorship donors, Lameck was able to complete his education and go on to college.  Lameck studied day and night to achieve good results and passed his course with flying colours.

Eleven years on from when we first met Lameck, he is now working for the Government of Tanzania as a Ward Councillor - a very prestigious position earning a good salary.  

Lameck told us 'my words can’t explain how grateful I’m for everything you have done to me and others here at Tanzania'.  Thank you to everyone that has made this possible.
