Hello, I am Sr. Vaileth Kahitabusha Willibard. I am a postulant serving as a Mother Sister for the Sisters of Mary World Villages for Children Girlstown in Dar es Saalam, Tanzania. We currently take care of almost 800 young girls here. We are currently adding new students to the program.
I joined the Sisters of Mary here in Tanzania in 2019. I come from Karagwe, Kyerwa, Kagera Region. I am the youngest of 6 siblings and also the only girl. Being the only girl, I am well protected by my parents and brothers. My parents are all Catholic and very hardworking. They are active in our parish and so I grow up also active in the church. When I was in Grade V, I thought of becoming a religious sister. Oftentimes, I saw sisters in our church and I was inspired by their examples of joy and piety and generosity. Three of my brothers are already married and they also help my parents and my other brothers to study and now they have their small business.
When I entered, I saw the Sisters are very simple, active and loving. I love most especially the prayer life and service to the children. Even when I was new immediately I was helping the professed sisters in taking care of the girls and also in going to different places to recruit the students. Everything is so new to me but little by little I come to know that really to follow Christ, I have to renounce all and give myself totally in what God wants of me. It is challenging but I always believe the God will also give me the grace.
Thank you for your prayers, financial support, and encouragement. Thank you for giving generously give what you have without asking for anything in return. We, as a family of the Sisters of Mary, and with our spiritual children, pray for you and your families daily.
