This year CWUHA agreed to sponsor the education of two children with the Excel Education Foundation ( E.E.F ) Moshi, Tanzania.
The charity pays for their school fees, uniforms, remedial classes, school supplies, educational tours, and annual comprehensive health insurance.
We thought our supporters might be interested in some background information on the children you help sponsor.
