Heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported Wesley College on Giving Tuesday last week. Your generosity resulted in 17 new scholarships for Wesley College. Because of you, 17 more students will take a major step toward their dreams for life. Seventeen more students will step out of a life that seems devoid of real opportunity. They will step, instead, into a life of hope.
A few weeks back, I told you that our scholarship fund needed $30,000 by the end of the year. As of TODAY, we have closed the gap by $8,710. But we still have $21,290 to go.
This is a real opportunity for future servant leaders in Tanzania. It is something that the community in Tanzania believes in.
While Giving Tuesday was going on in the US, staff and students at Wesley College were also contributing to life-changing opportunities for students from their communities. In Mwanza, a total of 32 staff and students participated in the Rock City Marathon. Whether they ran 5k, 10k, or a half-marathon, they ran to raise money for scholarships.
Staff and students raised funds for two more scholarships. Last week, in total, 19 new scholarships were funded because of our joint efforts.
We will never tire of providing life-changing opportunities to students and seeing servant leaders being made at Wesley College.
If you haven’t yet consider being a part of this effort, I hope you will. Whether you fund a full scholarship at $500 or contribute part of a scholarship, know that you are transforming lives. It’s easy and secure to give online here. Or, send a check to the address below.
