My name is Sianga. Today, I want to ask you a favour, but first I want to share my story with you.

I grew up in Maasai land in remote village of Kiserian, Tanzania, with my mother and my siblings. We never had the opportunity to go to school or even access to basic health care. I went to school under a tree and I had to walk 16 km each day. My family relied on their livestock for our livelihood. During dry seasons, we hardly had much to eat.

As a child, I would often walk our livestock miles and miles with an empty stomach. Food insecurity, especially during drought can be a matter of life and death.

I grew up knowing that I needed to do something to make sure no child should ever in front of my eye go through the same situation. 

I now run a charity called Future Warriors Project, which works to deliver grassroots programs and services that support Maasai people and communities to face the challenges of the modern world.

We work with women and early childhood education, providing support Maasai to benefit from the Tanzanian tourism industry. 

During the Covid-19 pandemic we provided over 500 families with food and produced education videos in 3 different languages. 

You see me in the middle with our preppy. The joy of doing this is something I will always treasure.

I have seen first hand how powerful  people can be in a making real, tangible change. Since starting Future Warriors Project in Tanzania we have supported over 400 women leading busines groups, sponsored over 600 children, published research about Maasai health, built cultural tourism campsites and provided nutritious food for an early childhood school.

I'm sharing my story today to ask you to give to Future Warriors Project Inc. this end of financial year, and make sure more women and children have the same opportunity that I had from start to today now living in Queensland, Australia.

Please give today.

Thank you for your support,
