Make a Difference, Moshi, Tanzania
Seek funding to help educate, feed, and uniform 9 children through elementary (1) and secondary (8) school at The Royal School, a private school in Himo, Tanazania. The children are double-orphans and have been supported by Make a Difference (gomadnow.org) for at least seven years, some since 2005. MAD supports 26 students in all, most now in upper levels in Tanzania, Zambia, USA (Duke University), and Canada (Memorial University, St. John's, NL). Corporate sponsors include Salesforce and Proctor & Gamble Alumni Network.
Make a Difference is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization registered in Boise, ID. MAD was founded by Theresa M. Grant, who since 2005 has lived in Africa to help children at the MAD orphanage to become leaders in their countries by providing superior educational opportunities while encouraging them to give back to their communities. The students are well rounded, resilient, and determined to turn to MAD for assistance, but not dependence, to make sure their ambitions are met.
If approved, 100% of the grant will go towards the project.
Additional information, including financial reports, will be provided upon request.
Disclosure: Project created by Buckhead Rotary Club member Peter Vang Jensen, advisor to the board of Make a Difference (MAD). Since 2011 Peter Vang Jensen has supported a student, Peter Carilo, with a monthly cash donation to MAD, as well as birthday and Christmas gifts.
