Ibrahim's Tuition for Arts College in Tanzania
Organized by: Jess Shvakhman
I met Ibrahim back in 2011 on a service trip to the coastal town of Bagamoyo, Tanzania. I was blown away when I saw musical and dance performaces by him and his friends. Ibrahim is very passionate about learning, especially when it comes to music and dance. Drumming is his expertise. He recently finished highschool and his dream is to attend Tasuba, the Bagamoyo College of Arts. He is very happy about his acceptance, but does not have the funds to pay the tuition for the first two years. WheN He was born, his mother passed away. He has been living with his grandmother and father, who does not make enough as a taxi driver to pay for the tuition. Ibrahim is working hard at saving money by participating in local performances, but it is not nearly enough to attend the school. Please help my kind, big hearted, and very talented friend persue his dreams. Hakuna matata.
