Malesa and Jeremiah left Mayega Children’s Centre a year and a half ago to begin national certificate courses at Nyakato College in Mwanza. Quite a challenge for two young men who had just completed school and moved from a small rural village to the big city. They have done well in their studies; Malesa in welding and Jeremiah in electrical installation. They are now in their second year and have just completed field placements.
Malesa worked at the Songoro boatyard in Mwanza repairing fishing boats and other vessels from Lake Victoria. A tough job in hot conditions, wearing protective clothing. Jeremiah was working outside in Busega District attaching electrical wires to posts as part of a government programme to connect isolated communities to the national grid. He was placed with TANESCO, the Tanzania Electrical Supply Corporation.
Congratulations to both for their hard work and commitment to making a future for themselves.
