About Omega


“Make A Difference means a lot to me because it helped me move from one stage to another through provision of education.  I’m a more confident person today and I can also now understand how to help others in difficult situations.

While studying at college in Tanzania I have had the opportunity to grow a lot talking to different people about ideas. I am so proud that I’m studying accounting and working towards making it my career! I like mathematics and accounting classes which are very important in my life and can help make me an independent woman. Later, I can help other women achieve the goals that I have achieved and make them build confidence and awareness of who they are.”

Omega was born in Mwika, Tanzania in 1994. She has 17 siblings who live in various locations throughout Tanzania. When Omega was ten-years-old both of her parents were murdered and left in the yard where Omega found them. Omega is still very affected by the experience. After this tragic event, Omega’s brother attempted to care for her, but struggled in doing so. Make A Difference was happy to help take care of her and send her to school. Now Omega leads a happy life. Omega is currently attending advanced level school (the last two years of high school). She just finished receiving tutoring in math and science to strengthen her comprehension of these subjects.

Omega is a beautiful, loving, and gentle young lady. She loves making jewelry and playing netball. Omega would like to be a manager with the Tanzania Revenue Authority and work in the tax collection division.

  1. Hi Omega, I am so proud of you for everything you’re done. Congratulations on completing secondary school and passing your test to go on to advanced level .It was a joy to meet you and spend time with you last month.
    Your passion for helping other Tanzanian children by having an orphanage is a wonderful goal and I know you will make it happen.
    I’ve learned something new about you through your blog… that you climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Bravo to you for that special achievement. I appreciate that you also want to show other girls that they can do it too. Yes they can… girls are strong, smart, bold, and just plain awesome!!!
    Until I see you again next winter, much love and many blessings to you.

  2. Hujambo Omega,
    Congratulations on starting your advanced level schooling! I hope you and Neema are thoroughly enjoying the experience. I wish you much success and know you will do well.

    I have a picture of you wonderful and beautiful young people on my Facebook page that I see many times a week. It’s such a nice reminder of our time together earlier this year. I’m looking forward to being in Tanzania the first part of the year and seeing all of you again.

    Love and blessings to you.
