Four students at the MELOC Christian Academy we built in Longido are in need of scholarship support to continue their education. Your monthly support can change their lives!

Building the MELOC Academy for talented children and the handicapped, was an idea initiated by Steven and Agnes Kiruswa when they saw a great need in their home district of Longido in northern Tanzania. 

The Kiruswas are able to provide updates on the students you support, even passing on messages and photos if you wish!

Meet the Kids:

Kitamwas - At 11 years old, Kitamwas' dad is a young man who lost his sight at an early age. He is the only kid in his family who is able to attend school.
