We have thought that educating the next generation is one of the best ways to have a long term impact in Ifakara communities and Tanzania at large. We have therefore committed ourselves to support students from poor families to English Medium schools, Secondary schools, Universities and Vocation training colleges (trade schools) who have good character formation and show a great endeavor in academic.
A student/ parent is obliged to write a request letter to the Director of Valenova Foundation explaining his/her problems to why he/she fails to pay school fees for the family, Valenova members normally meet in every two weeks to discuss various things that are taking place at the Charity and it is the time when the requests are discussed, if the funds available, the person requested will be notified.
We are faced with a challenge in attending the requests of sponsoring students, we have many requests from families that give us difficult in sponsoring them, right now we have no donor who is helping in education we only depend on Income generating project of a tractor that the income we get from ploughing the farms of the farmers we give students for school fees but we still need to have a great support in having more funds to pay for school fees, we invite anyone who want to be a part of making the difference to the lives of the people in need.
