Location: Moshi, Tanzania (map)This lovely young lady is Jenipha Joseph. She was 8 years old in 2011 when we learned of her from a good friend who helps run an orphanage in Moshi, Tanzania. Jenipha is from the Boma area of the country, and has no siblings. We do not know the exact cause of the death of her parents but believe it was HIV related, as are many of the deaths in the region. The orphanage tells us that she is a most elegant young lady and takes great care in choosing her clothes and shoes making sure that things match. This and the way she walks and carries herself make all of us think that she is going to be a model some day. She is also one of the top students, finishing seventh in her class of 120 at the end of first grade.
In her most recent grade report from the end of the school year in 2012, Jeni ranks 45 out of 104, with a B average. She’s doing really well, and we’re very proud of her! Her most recent Christmas letter can be read here: JeniJ122012Letter
