Birigitha is a 14-year old student at Mikalanga Secondary. She recently completed primary school at Matekela Primary School. Her parents Burayton and Monika are raising Birigitha with her 2 brothers and 2 sisters. In her application she highlights problems facing her family that include lack of piped water (they receive their water from a well). She is grateful to her teachers who helped her to graduate from primary school. She would love to continue her studies and become a minister of parliament or even the president of Tanzania!
