Maria Felix, one of the first Tanzanian women to receive a scholarship from African Childrens Haven back in 2010 recently completed her secondary school exams and qualified for university. Maria, shown here with her mentor, Dr. Aichi Kitalyi, is an exceptional young woman whose hard work and determination helped her to rise above the difficult circumstances of her young life. Like millions of other African girls, Maria was orphaned as child and lacked money to pay school fees. Once Maria completes university, her dream is to go to medical school. African Childrens Haven will continue to support Maria throughout her studies.
