Gemma Sisia is setting off on tour to spread the word about The School of St Jude. Having inspired countless Australians through her bestselling book St Jude’s, appearances on 60 Minutes and Australian Story as well as other speaking engagements, it’s now time for her to hit the road again.
This year Gemma will be accompanied by St Jude’s graduate Godwin who joined the school in 2012. Godwin had struggled through a primary education at a local government school in classes of over 90, with teachers who often didn’t turn up. Having done well in his primary leavers exam he was invited to attend the selection day at St Jude’s and successfully awarded a place.
Seven years on, Godwin has now secured a place at an internationally-renowned university and is well on his way to achieving his dream of becoming an engineer. His story shows just how much of a difference our supporters are making in the fight against poverty in Tanzania.
Gemma will be visiting major cities in Australia and even touching down in New Zealand this year. Come along to a public event, meet Gemma and Godwin and hear the St Jude’s story for yourself.
