The Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery have been forwarding money from generous donors to Sister Gaudensia Mwanyika of St. Gertrude Convent in Imiliwaha, Tanzania, to help build her dream of a school for handicapped children.

The  latest donations will pay for furniture and teaching supplies so that the school can open on time — January 16, 2017.  

In Tanzania, handicapped children are not allowed to attend school. This will be the first school built for these children who have physical or learning challenges.
