Serengeti Scholarships 

Through the Nomad Trust, we have sponsored three girls from Mugumu’s ‘Hope Centre’ fighting FGM on the Serengeti boundary, to enrol on a one-year hospitality course at a certified vocational training college in Moshi.

The college, More Than A Drop, is a foundation that offers training to girls from impoverished and challenging backgrounds. They have a unique model of training based on practical, interactive and engaging ways of learning. The girls will gain first hand experience from the working guest house on site and enjoy extra-curricular activities from yoga to role playing.

Elizabeth, Paulina and Nchangwa, all 18 years old and all rearing to go as they started their course last week. This life-changing opportunity will equip them with vital skills and qualifications to help them have brighter futures. 

The girls’ applications were shortlisted, and they traveled all the way from the Serengeti to Moshi for their interviews. The girls really shone among all the 109 candidates and were in the top five over all!
