In this week’s post, I’m pleased to introduce two more of Tariro’s recent prize winners. The first, Pride R., lives in Epworth, and joined Tariro in 2010. Pride won two prizes this past term at Domboramwari Secondary School. She was awarded the first of these two prizes for having the ranking 2nd place among almost 250 students in her Form 1 cohort!
She was also awarded a second prize for being the most well-behaved and grounded student in the entire school. The most amazing part of this story is that Pride won these two awards just two terms after returning to school, after missing an entire year of school because of a lack of money to pay school fees before she began to receive assistance from Tariro.
The next Tariro prize winner is Vimbai C., also a Form 1 student at Domboramwari Secondary School in Epworth. Vimbai, who is also very committed to her schoolwork, won a prize for being the best history student in her grade at school.
Pride… what a great name for such an amazing young student! For me, through, Pride’s name sums up my feelings about all of Tariro’s students, who are overcoming the obstacles of losing parents to HIV/AIDS, and are pursuing their dreams. Remember, though, we need your help to do it!
