mAKING AN IMPACT ON EDUCATION
My name is William Lukas Kirika and I am the Director of Maua Primary School. We are very grateful! We are grateful to those who have come to give us aid for our children.
The success of this project is due to your efforts as well as the church.
We give thanks because even those of us who have been suffering from vision problems but haven’t been able to go to a hospital or clinic now have obtained glasses for reading and daily use. We are very thankful for this.
We are also grateful to the donors who enabled you to come to our school and our community of Meru, as well as Tanzania in general. This project helps children improve their vision with eyeglasses.
This project is very similar to what we envisioned. I am a teacher and so is my wife. The thought behind opening a school here in Meru was to help the community of Meru so we can get the specialists (professionals) of tomorrow who will help us. We will have doctors among these kids, Presidents, Ministers of parliament and others of that caliber.
I would also like to that Diocese [of Meru] for making this connection because it is a big help to the whole community.”

Since the SKYGEN Foundation started working in Tanzania in July 2018 we have screened more than 30,000 students and nearly 1500 teachers. More than 3300 teachers and students have had their lives impacted by receiving new glasses.
