I grow up in a family where my mother supported her relative and non relative, most of them being orphans.
I had a dream of taking care of these orphan/less privileged children in a bit of advance way to give them excellence education, as for them to be able depend themselves and being responsible and productive to the community."
My dream came true when my husband Khalifa and two business women Ms. Aysharose Mattembe and Muna Mohammed¬† joined together financially and establish The British School of Zanzibar on 31st ¬†January, 2012 . we started with 3 children one of them being an orphan his name Maimuna Makungu.
With a support of one year tuition fee from a tourist friend Mr. charles Murray from Scotland we managed to add another orphan later Nuru Haji
At the moment BSZ¬† have got 47 students and support¬† 10% orphans aged 8 - 16 years old.
1. Maimuna Mohamed Makungu - Year 5 ¬†11 years old
2. Nuru Haji - Year 6 16 years old
3. Feteh Mbarouk - Year 4 8 years old
4. Islam Shibu - partly supported - Year 3 11 years old
