Since 2010, The World Federation has been doing its part to ensure that the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) formed by the United Nations are met by 2015. MDG GOAL 2 was to achieve universal primary education.
In November 2014, Mwanatumu Hamza will complete her Bachelor of Arts with Education Degree from Kampala University. Reaching this milestone has not been easy for Mwanatumu.
Born in Mombasa Kenya, attending primary and secondary school was a challenge as she and her siblings were raised solely by her mother. Through the sacrifice, determination, and encouragement of her mother, she was able to study at Timbwani Baptist primary school and Coast Girls High School in Mombasa.
As the time approached for her to begin her higher education, Mwanatumu had reached a crossroads and faced the possibility of leaving her education behind in order to find a way to support her mother and siblings. However, through the support of ZCSS (Zainabiyya Child Sponsorship Scheme), she was able to move forward with her studies.
As Mwanatumu prepares to complete her degree, she is preparing for her future and is ready to embark on her dreams. She writes, “I am very grateful to the Almighty for how ZCSS has contributed to my life. I was able to pursue my education, and obtain my degree which will enable me to secure a respectable job and allow me to care for my mother and siblings. I have a dream of imparting knowledge to young ones, to create awareness and enlighten girls on the importance of education as inspired by my mother. Alhamdulillah I am one step closer to fulfilling my dream”
