BENEFITING: SMALL THINGS

Sarah Zack

THE STORY:

In May 2010 I traveled to Arusha, Tanzania where I volunteered in a baby home (orphanage for children 3 and under). While I was there I met one year old Miriam, and we sort of clicked. We sort of clicked so much that I was ready to drop everything and be her mama! Unfortunately, Tanzanian law does not permit foreign adoption, so I could only live a month long fantasy of being her mama while I was there. Leaving Tanzania was terribly difficult as I was convinced the only way I could stay connected to Miriam would be through a possible sponsorship.







A little over a year ago I read on the orphanage's blog that Miriam was picked up by her aunt and moved to another orphanage. Through a number of unanswered emails and some Google searching, I found Miriam's new orphanage and immediately emailed them--and immediately heard back! They not only gave me an update on Miriam, they sent me a video of the three year old diva dancing! It was at that point that I decided I was absolutely going back to Tanzania to SEE HER.







In about a year, Miriam will be five years old and ready to start school. Her school fees will be near $1,000 and she will need sponsors. If you're interested in contributing even just a few dollars to Miriam's education, I would be so greatly appreciative. I will be doing a short unit on Tanzania with my fourth graders and they will be fundraising for Nkoaranga Orphanage (where Miriam lives) to use where it funds are most needed. Thank you so much! Asante sana (squashed banana).
