 Thank you so much for your continued support of The School of St Jude through your sponsorship of Mr Seraphine Benedict  Lyimo! As Mr Lyimo's generous sponsor, we hope that you've enjoyed hearing directly from our students just how much your contribution is appreciated. Your sponsorship of  Mr Lyimo, who is Deputy Head and teacher of Form 2 History at our Usa River Secondary campus, supports both his fellow St Jude's teachers and Mr Lyimo as they work hard to educate Tanzania's future leaders. Life at The School of St Jude is continuing to thrive; we now educate nearly 1,500 students spread across three amazing schools, two boarding campuses and employ over 340 local Tanzanian staff.  All this would not be possible without the enormous contribution and generosity of supporters like you!  Thank you again for your incredible ongoing support of Mr Lyimo, and ultimately for standing with us in our Fight against Poverty!
Kind regards Julie
