Namelock Elias and she is 20 years old. Namelock is Maasai and is from the Simanjiro area of Tanzania. She is a Christian and was raised in a Christian family. She is young, energetic and passionate about education and teaching children. Namelock and her father found out about JTTC through one of the pastors from their Simanjiro area who trained at the Joshua Foundation Leadership Missions College years ago. She was excited about the opportunity but discouraged because of the tuition expenses. Our friends at JTTC knew that we were looking for qualified Maasai teachers for Ormee, so we were introduced to Namelock, heard hear heart and passion and decided she would be a perfect addition to Ormee Primary School.

The Ormee Primary School provides quality Christian education to local Maasai children who otherwise would not have the opportunity. Our mission is to equip the next generation of leaders to make a Kingdom impact in their own lives, their family, their community and their nation. In order for us to achive our goal the Ormee Primary School must have quality trained teachers who have a heart and passion for children, education and carry the same vision. Currently in the Tanzanian public schools the government is posting one teacher for every 150 students. The Ormee Primary School has one teacher for every 30 students. The government as also recently changed the teaching requirements for primary school teachers, which leaves thousands of Tanzanian teachers now unqualified to teach forcing them to resit their exams and extend their education and qualifications. This is also the case for the teachers of Ormee.
Farm Hope Thrive is dedicated to ensure the Ormee teachers are fully qualified to educate and equip the beautiful Maasai children of Ormee Primary School. We have decided to assist the Ormee teachers with their school fees to extend their education and qualifications. Upon passing their exams, the Ormee teachers will be enrolled at the Joshua Foundation Teacher's Training College (JTTC) in Arusha, Tanzania. In our opinion and experience, JTTC is the best teacher's college in all of Tanzania. We have known and worked with them for many years. The teacher's extended education and qualifications will take 2 years to complete and will only cost $2000 per year, which includes tuition, food and accommodation. That's only a total of $4000 to fully qualify one of our Ormee teachers.
We recently had seven teachers take their exams in order to qualify to attend JTTC. They are now patiently awaiting their results. However, we have one teacher that has already qualified and now attending the college. Her name is Namelock and her details are below. Will you partner with us by sponsoring one of our Ormee teachers to insure the Ormee Primary School had the best qualified teachers in all of Tanzania?
