Joseph in Tanzania

January 1, 2006

We began sponsoring Joseph in March of 2011 and have received 63 letters so far. Both of his parents have passed away and he lives with his Grandmother. He also has a twin brother.

In almost every letter to us, Joseph "welcomes us to Tanzania". Oh how I hope we can go someday.

Joseph attends TZ 807 - Chamwino Student Center (3Km west of Dodoma)

He attends 1 day a week (Saturday) and it's located 1 km from his home. In 2012, this center was ministering to 253 children.  While at the center, Joseph memorizes verses and plays. He also eats spiced rice, oranges, beef and rice.

Joseph's community has about 600 residents. Work is mostly provided by petty business jobs and the mode of transportation is bus. 

He was able to purchase the following with $ we have sent: bag, shoes, sugar, soap, shirt, pants, necktie and shoes (as seen in the photo above)

In 2021 he began working at a garage.
