Valeriana is one of eight children in her family. She has five brothers and two sisters. She lives with her parents and siblings in a  three-room brick house that has mud floors and a metal roof, in Mbinga, Tanzania. Valeriana is in the first level of secondary school and her favourite subjects are Math and English. She enjoys playing netball with her friends. At home, she is responsible for helping with the cooking and cleaning chores. Valeriana would like to be able to continue her education and become a teacher someday. At the Mbinga Sponsor Site, sponsorship helps pay school fees so that children can attend school regularly and get a good education. Children also benefit from receiving access to improved nutrition, medical care, and basic necessities such as clothing.
If paying by credit card online please write down the child’s ID number. Thank you!

A SPECIAL NOTE TO SPONSORS FROM THE USA. We will send you a receipt for income tax purposes following the end of each calendar year. Chalice is not a registered charity in the USA, but Canada and the USA do have a tax treaty which allows a tax deduction under certain conditions. Basically, a resident of the USA may be eligible to claim a deduction against taxable income received from Canada. Please consult a qualified financial advisor to review your own personal situation. You can still sponsor if you don't require an official income tax receipt. We have many sponsors from the USA and we send them our heartfelt thank you.
