Mrs Christina Wren et al,


Mount Kilimanjaro School would like to say thank you to you Mrs Christina Wren and your colleagues (for the Mount Kilimanjaro First Aid Community Programme) for the wonderful sustainable projects you have both developed and implemented in our school and the nearby local community.

Our pupils gained enormous skills in arts and crafts which are now able to share the knowledge and skills acquired with local orphanages and pass on the knowledge to the kids living in the orphanage. In addition, we really appreciate the Football Programme which delivers message about HIV has been received by the children very warmly and not forgetting the importance of the first aid team which was set in 2009 which helps our people save lives.

We commend you so much as you took some of our children into the orphanage to help develop a sustainable food programme with the children on the orphanage and now are above to feed themselves on a self-reliance basis because of the shared skills between you and your team on one side and the children on the other.

We wish you a bon voyage and hope to see you in the future for other related projects.

Thank you,

Dear Tina,


Thank you for conducting conservation programmes at Mweka that held on 17th August, 2011.

The programme was well organised and attended by majority of our students. Students had an opportunity to design and display wildlife artistic works including giraffe, zebra, elephant and plant species (acacia).

The project or rather activity helped to raise conservation awareness amongst the students and the community at large in seeing the importance of conserving the environment for present and future generations needs.

It is obviously that without your support this event could not be possible. Everyone at this college sends deepest appreciation for your support.

Indeed, we are fortunate to have people as yourself that are dedicated in improving conservation education.

We look forward to formally collaborate in the near future.

Thank you.
Sincerely yours,
Obeid Mahenya (Dean of students)

Dear Tina and Andrew,
Much greetings from me. It's my sincere hope that you are fine as I am. The main objective of writing this letter is to give you a lot of thanks for all what you have done to me and others in general. I in particular have appreciated very much the many and different books you have donated/provided to the library. The books will help our pupils/students improve their English language.

Secondly, on the sides of sports, you have contributed tremendously by providing balls, t shirts etc. not forgetting the renovation you did in the school's main office and hostels.

This has really changed their appearance. You have also offered first aid, activities in and outside the school. Not forgetting the swimming pools and radios and laptops etc. another remarkable event is helping of orphans centre by providing them with food, school uniforms to mention but a few. The orphans are really destitute children and without you giving them a hand, they can find themselves unprivileged and neglected. May God let you live longer so as to continue helping the need in general.

In conclusion, I would not forget how we visited Ngorongoro, Manyara, Tarangire national parks. This was a golden opportunity to me because I managed to see some wild animals for the first time.

Thank you once more for giving me these opportunity special thanks should go to Mrs. Tina Wren, who without her things couldn't have taken the course they did. May the almighty God help you and your family in general.

Finally I wish you a safe journey bac


Yours sincerely,
Sarah Kwayu

To Tina Wren,
Dear Mrs Wren, thank you so much for allowing your students and volunteers to visit the YMCA Hotel Training School, Moshi.

The whole visit was so instructional to the Hotel students – in all eighty students and staff. All were so impressed with the way that Mount Kilimanjaro First Aid Community Programme students demonstrated the first aid programme.

work that you and your volunteers do for the community in Moshi – is magnificent.

We hope we will be able to have much contact in the future between our school and college. I am sure it will be most beneficial to both.

Please thank your students for performing to such a very high standard

We thank a lot Madame Christina Wren, Ellie Anderson and Mr Andrew Jenkin for coming to our school to teach our pupils football for four days.

Dear Tina,
We are so grateful for the support and hand you [are] giving us.

The knowledge I personally feel so lucky to have the opportunity to learn and teach and pass it on to others.

Helping and supporting he orphans and Mount Kilimanjaro school for the sports equipment, I feel so blessed and happy that I can make a difference as a card coordinator. I feel so happy I can't express it with words.

Thanks a lot Tina, I promise to bring change and share my skills and train and love and do all I can to support my fellow students, orphans and the community around me.

As I want a bright future for myself I would like my people (who surround me) even [to] live a good life.

People in Tanzania are not that developed and rely [on] help from the West but I believe that if I can help in small ways by making the cards and the money be used in different ways making the environment (surrounding) a better place to live.

We all want a happy life [as do] the orphans and [as do] the poor.

Thanks Tina
Hope we will make it to a place where the orphans and all of us live happy and in love and in peace.

Have a safe journey,
Keep in touch,
See you soon,
Anisa Mustafa!

To Tina
I wanted to experience a different culture. I wanted to try to make a small difference in Africa! I wanted to meet new people and experience a different way of life?!!

Did I achieve the above wish list'? you bet I did in more ways than I ever expected. But most of all, I met the most kind and inspirational lady from whom I observe and learn from everyday (as well as laughter – the most important memory that will stay with me) that lady Tina is you.

Thank you

Dear Tina,
I hope you're fine, me too am fine, it has come to the time to say goodbye until we meet again if God is willing sincerely you have been good to me and not only to me [but] to all the first aid students, at large and non. I have nothing to give you as a thanks for all the thing teaching advices, love and caring you have been showing us but I know and believe that God will pay you accordingly.

As you are living today 6/09/2011 most of us are wondering and asking ourselves if God will give us this chance again to be with you but we believe that through pay God is going to give us the chance again because mountain never meet but we do.

I wish you a wonderful and joyous moment as you are going to meet your family and friends once again and tell them how much you have been working for us and how much we have learned. Tell them we need you more than they do.

On behalf of my first aid student, I wish you a nice journey and pray for God protection throughout your way also pray for me as I am going to sit for my exams tomorrow.

Love you Sana,
With lots of love and miss,
From your student,
Goodhope Goodluck
