Vivian’s Testimony

Sponsorship Programme has played a vital role in my life including health, spiritual life and most importantly my academic journey.

My sincere thanks goes to Mama Rose Bugusu for having a kind heart and taking a step further to establish Tumaini Miles of Smiles centre and school. Tumaini Miles of Smiles has been more than a home to me. Without the support from Mama Rose and all other well-wishers whose hearts were touched to support me, I don’t think I would have reached where I am now. Definitely, I would have dropped out of school long time ago due to certain factors that I could not avoid especially poverty and having a single mother who is jobless. Therefore, she would not have been able to cater to our needs.

The sponsorship programme has enabled me to school in my Primary education and Secondary education smoothly and now I am in University. Through this programme also I have had an opportunity to interact with different people from various countries hence being exposed a lot and learning different cultures of different nations. I was given an opportunity to also visit the United States of America something that I can’t just take it for granted. I am so grateful to God because this programme has not only touched me but a lot of children who are less privileged and others abandoned have been able to restore hope and their future rebuild.

Finally, I would like to thank all the well-wishers who have faithfully journeyed with Mama Rose to ensure that our education is empowered. We can’t thank you enough but may the Good Lord reward you abundantly for being a blessing to us and transforming our lives. May God bless you all.
