Journalistic helping hand
The BAJ graduates who are working as Children Ambassadors in Education (CHAED) Organization donated the items like second hand clothes, exercise books, pens, pencils and rulers to over one hundred and seventy students.
Speaking before donating the items, the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the organization Prince Muta, said he thought of starting this organization in 2018. The aim is to try and help the needy students in rural areas.
“Since the organization started, this is the first place to donate these items. We hope to continue doing this in different areas so that students should not fail to attend classes due to lack of important school materials,” Muta Said
Receiving the donation, the headmaster of Matenjere Primary School, Dezio Levi together with the headmaster of Njuli CDSS Anthony Mkweteza, both thanked CHAED for considering their schools with the donation.
They both mentioned that these items will help to improve education in this area because some students drop out of school because of poverty.
CHAED Chairperson who is also a former BAJ student, Sydreck Chavura, motivated the students by encouraging them to work hard in class despite meeting challenges.
“We also grew up and learned in the rural areas where we met the same challenges you are meeting but we still managed to further our studies up to the University. You too can also achieve that,” Chavura advised.
CHAED organization does not have sponsorship; it gets the materials from well-wishers all over the country.
