Yasini “Yacn” Is Now Enrolled In His Fourth Semester at the The University of Dar Es Salaam

Your donations totaling $1200 were successfully transferred to the university and Yacn will be able to begin classes on time. Thank you so much for making the dreams of this bright, young man achievable.

When Aura’s House Partner, Heather LaBonte, asked Yacn why he wanted to study law, he replied “‘To become a successful lawyer who can help poor Tanzanian woman and children who are a vulnerable group and isolated in our society. Most of the time they are denied their rights, for example the right to own property, inheritance, marital issues, right to work, and their liberty. I choose to study law because it’s easy to help people by knowing law especially vulnerable groups.”
