In today’s post, I’m happy to announce that yet another Tariro student has won a scholarship to support her academic work! This student is Politeness N., who has been enrolled in Tariro for the past three years. Due to her difficult home situation, Tariro offered Politeness a place in boarding school, and she has been attending the UMMA Institute in Marondera. Politeness has truly excelled in her studies, winning awards each term for her academic excellence. This year, Politeness wrote her Ordinary Level exams. She passed every one of the nine subjects she wrote, scoring one A in Geography, four B’s in History, Science, Shona,English, and four C’s in Maths, Accounts, Commerce, and Religious Studies.
In recognition for Politeness’s excellent work, her school, the UMMA Institute of Marondera, has offered her a scholarship covering half of her school fees for her Advanced Level study, which she begins this year. This scholarship represents an important contribution to helping Tariro cover the cost of her education, and is worth approximately $1,000 per year, for two years of study. Once again, we’re seeing great results from our girls!
