We get by with a little help from our friends!
Thank you Erin Meade from Anchorage, AK, for your generous donation to Tanzania Education Corporation. Through your amazing gift, we now have ELEVEN new globes at Tumaini Junior School!
I unpacked the globes yesterday with the help of school Principal, Allan. They’re a lovely addition to the library and will first be enjoyed by the Standard VII students who return to school today!!!
ALSO, A BIG thank you to Barb, Sadie, Bridget and Laura, our rock star volunteers, whose 12 days of help proved invaluable. They organized the library with school librarian Jimmy, led a special health education talk/seminar one evening with the Standard VII female students, joined me in taking groups of sponsored kids to nearby FAME for medical check-ups, enjoyed several cultural tours in/around Karatu, and Bridget (An English teacher with 7 years experience) even worked on professional development with the Tumaini teachers one afternoon. Without their help, the library would not have been so utilized AND appreciated! Each day the students literally raced to the second floor library! Asanteni SANA!!
These amazing women also spent time at nearby Shalom Orphanage, where they enjoyed time with the 62 children and the dedicated staff. Their generosity extended to a market visit where we bought a two week supply of beans, oranges, and some needed household items for Shalom!
Special Note: We are continually accepting donations of subject books for each grade level at Tumaini. These books are only available in Tanzania and range from $4-6/book. If you would like to help us expand this collection, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
