Mbokomu Secondary School
‘’Thank you so much for the two tanks that you have supported us with, you have considered our school in that we have classes that are far apart from each other. We look forward to these tanks to help Scholars in the process of taking precautions on COVID-19 while at school. And thank you for the academic support that you have been supporting to Scholars during the COVID- 19 while at home. Pass our sincere appreciation to the whole team of GLAMI.’’

Mabogini Secondary School
We can’t thank you enough, because we had no idea how we were going to deal with students when they got back to school. Through these buckets and the hand wash soaps you have supported us with, it gives us hope that our school will be a safe place for our students who are getting back to school on Monday’’
- Second master at Mabogini Secondary School

When we were told that you will be bringing us this stapport all teachers thanked you via our WhatsApp group, and on behalf of them, I would like to pass their sincere appreciation to you and the whole team of GLAMI.’’

JK Nyerere Secondary School
“Thank you so much for being with us during this time where it is really difficult for us since we have a larger number of students and we only had very few buckets. Now that you have supported us with the tank that can be operated by foot, our students will be safer while here at school. May God bless you abundantly.”
- Head of School at JK Nyerere
“Thank you so much our dear mentors from GLAMI, you have really been taking good care of us during the COVID-19 break. Now that we are back at school you have thought of helping us with the water tank for handwashing so that we can continue to take precautions while at school. Thank you so much and God bless you.”
- Binti Shupavu, Y4 at JK Nyerere Secondary School
Mringa Secondary School
“Please pass my gratitude to the GLAMI administration, the school is very grateful for the support. The two hand washing stations will cover so many students. The tanks will be stationed at the main entrance to be used when students arrive in the morning. We have many students, so 1000 litres of water is enough every morning, and it is easier compared to when they were using buckets which were required to be filled with water every few minutes.
- Head of school
Irkisongo Girls High School
“Today I will have a proper sleep, knowing the girls will be safe when they return back to school. We will have more stations for the them to clean their hands at any time. Please pass my sincere gratitude to the top management of GLAMI and your sponsors as well.”
- Head of School
A Binti Scholar responded through her parent’s phone:
“I would like to thank you for bringing us the buckets and soaps to clean our hands. One has been stationed at the door of our classroom. I am so proud to be in the [Binti] program. May God bless you all.”
“I have been waiting for your call since morning, thank you for sharing the good news! The buckets and soap will help our students to be able to wash their hands at any time.”
- Head of School
Kipok Girls Secondary
“Thank you for thinking of the girls, especially during this difficult time. With the little funds we get from the government, I wouldn’t be able to purchase all of these equipment. Your assistance will help not only the girls but also the teachers and other staff within the school.”
- Head of School
“15 litres of Dettol is very much enough for us. We will be mixing a very small amount of it in the water that will be used by students and staff for washing their hands. The 15 bottles will last long, I do not have stress any more. Thank you so much for the support.”
- Head of School
“Thank you so much GLAMI, 50 litres of handwashing soap will take us very far. Soaps are the one thing that we will be required to have a lot of in our stock. We are very grateful for the support, as it has really solved the challenge we have been anticipating.”
- Assistant Head of School
Tarakea Secondary School
“We are grateful to have such an organization that keeps on thinking about us.”
From our Mentor: At the beginning, this Partner School thought GLAMI support would only be for Kisa Scholars, but they were surprised to see that it went to the whole school. The head of school and the liaison were so happy to have this quick response toward the COVID-19, and the other teachers were so happy for our great support, they wished us all the best and blessings in all of what we do.
“I wish you the great blessings in all of your works, and may God increase you more as you keep touching the life of girls.”
From our Mentor: The Head of School was happy to see how we think of them and she sent many blessings to all of our work, and said she had asked God to bless us more and increase us in all of our work. She was so touched with our support.
“Ooooh my, you guys are so helpful! I was wondering how we would get a second thermoscan, as so far we had one and it’s not enough for our whole school.”
From our Mentor: The Head of School said she was so frustrated due to the fact that she had only one thermoscan at the gate and she had a total number of 700+ students. Having the second thermoscan was of great support to them, as soon after form six leave they will be receiving the new form five scholars. Having two thermoscans at the gate was a big support and a great help to them. She really thanks the GLAMI administration for keeping on thinking about them.
“Thank you so much for the great support!”
From our Mentor: The Head of School was very happy receiving the hand sanitizer, and he was so thankful for all the support that we keep on providing.
“Kisa is a great project. You guys keep on thinking about us! Last year, your Scholars built the notice board at our school; now we have a quick response toward COVID-19. As the head of school, I really appreciate your support!”
From our Mentor: The Head of School was so grateful receiving hand wash and the bucket of water. He was happy to see that we still think of them, as just last year at his school, the Form Six students built the notice board. Now, he is receiving this quick COVID-19 response and he is thankful for this support. He wishes us blessings and gives many greetings to the whole team and the management.
“GLAMI is a great organization, may God keep on blessing you for all of what you do. I will write an appreciation letter to the Director in thanks for thinking about us!”
From our Mentor: The Head of School was so happy to receive 100 litres of soap, as she was thinking about how she can manage the whole bunch of 700+ students at her school.
“Thank you so much for the tank! We are happy that this could help us to cover many students around the school as we had many students at this school.”
From our Mentor: The Head of School was happy to receive the handwashing tank with water taps to support the students in washing their hands quickly.
“I am so grateful for this support, as this will help to cover many scholars. It will be of big support to the future!”
