Sponsorship-Program News

Dear friends of P.A.P.A.-Bridge,
the school-sponsorship program is now in operation since some years. We are very happy that we already found several nice people willing to sponsor the education of children in Kilema.
To date Karin Oswald was responsible for the sponsorship program and she really did a great job. For personal reasons Karin did abandon this occupation a few days ago and now the new responsible person for the school sponsorship program is happy to introduce herself:

 

Jambo!
It is a pleasure to introduce myself as the successor of Karin Oswald and new coordinator of the sponsorship program of P.A.P.A. Bridge on Austria’s side. My name is Claudia Schanes and I am from Sinabelkirchen. In addition to my profession as a teacher, I have been engaging with P.A.P.A. Bridge since 2015. The collaboration started when I first went to Tanzania with a tour group of Father Joseph Windisch in 2015. The following year, I spent three months working for the P.A.P.A. Bridge Vocational Training Center in pedagogical as well as general school matters. By getting to know the whole school community along with the principal Tobias
Makundi, the teachers and students etc., I could gain insights into the school life, which support my work as sponsorship coordinator. Thus, I can carry out the activity in a very devoted way, as I have already become acquainted with Mary Mchaki – the sponsorship coordinator in Kilema – as well as the circumstances of the school.
My aims to the sponsorship program are to be well-connected and up to date with Mary Mchaki and to inform the sponsors about the progress of their godchild. I look forward to performing the new function and I thank you for a good cooperation in advance.
Mungu akubariki! (God bless you!),
Claudia Schanes

We would be very thankful if you could help us to increase the awareness level about the sponsorship program in your circle of friends and family.
All the best and may God bless you,
– Walter Koch / Chairman P.A.P.A.-Bridge
– Claudia Schanes / Contactperson Sponsorship-program
– and the Board of the P.A.P.A..Bridge organization
