Ojung’u Memorial Fund

The parents are responsible for food and transportation, but the tuition scholarship is an enormous help. Your assistance with tuition makes it possible for them to receive a quality education. 

Ojung’u Samwel Mollel, age 42, our school’s founding father, passed away September 13, 2020 after fighting a 6-month battle with acute leukemia. Just six hours before his death, he told his doctor, “God bless you, go home, take care of your family. I am cleansed and will go home tomorrow.” He will be remembered as a humble, kind, and wise man. He will be greatly missed by his wife, 5 children, and all his family and friends.

For years Ojung’u dreamed of building a school on his farmland where children could receive a quality education and have a better chance at life. Because of your support for Heart To Care Tanzania, Ojung’u’s dream became a reality. To honor him – and – keep his dream alive, we have established the Ojung’u Memorial Fund. Each January, at the start of the new school year, we will give $200 scholarships to children who need assistance. Over the years, the gifts from this memorial will provide many children a bright future.

A closer look at these beautiful children!

In 2022, we will again award scholarships. I hope you will continue to support the scholarship fund.

The Ojung’u Memorial Fund’s also helped raise money to purchase textbooks for ALL the classes. We gave remembrance to Ojung’u inside each textbook.

The books were chosen by the teachers and will be purchased locally in Tanzania. We will pass the books along year after year.

As of 1/22/21 – 1 United States Dollar equals 2,319.00 Tanzanian Shillings

Next year we will use this Memorial Fund to purchase text books for our 5th graders!
