In late October, Soit Sambu Secondary School held its graduation for Form Four students and the official dedication ceremony for the FoTZC-constructed girls’ dormitory at the school. The dormitory is beautiful, and is even fully-furnished! It was wonderful to see the community come together to celebrate the new building in such a spectacular fashion. More than three hundred people from the surrounding communities attended the event! The Ngorongoro District Commissioner, Elias Wawa Lali, was the guest of honor at the celebration. Also in attendance were the Ngorongoro District Member of Parliament, Saning’o ole Telele, the Oloipir Ward Councilor, William Alais, and the Sukenya Village Chairman, Loserian Minis.
The day began with an official delegation touring the dormitory, followed by groups of parents, students, and community members. Everyone who saw the new space was impressed by the size of the dormitory and the quality of the facility. Choirs sang several songs praising and thanking FoTZC and its donors for the new housing for female students at the school. After the performances, the District Commissioner gave a short speech about the importance of collaboration among communities and FoTZC, and unveiled a plaque for the dedication.
Later in the day, the Form Four graduation kicked off with songs, dances, and skits. The Soit Sambu Secondary School Board awarded certificates to the District Commissioner, the Member of Parliament, the Oloipiri Ward Councilor, the Sukenya Village Chairman, the Soit Sambu Secondary School headmaster, and to FoTZC. We are proud to be working with such an outstanding school.
