To the ends of the earth…and back!

A new year school year, continued partnerships, & a new do!

Back to school again!!
After a lovely December holiday, Tumaini students and teachers are gearing up for another school year to begin! Boarding students have returned already and tomorrow, January 7, classes for the 2013 year will commence!!

A few months ago, I highlighted the wonderful work of UNITE. Through UNITE’s hard work in August 2012, Tumaini received an entire library of books from a Brewster, NY school! In 2013 we look forward to receiving some UNITE visitors who will do some seminars for our teachers and students. Stay tuned in February for more updates once we welcome UNITE friends to Tumaini!!

Upon realizing how long my hair had grown during my recent five month stint in Tanzania, I decided I would donate it once back in the US. After all, given the frequent water shortages, longer hair proves rather difficult to keep clean. 🙂 Anyway, a good friend recommended I check out Pantene’s program, Beautiful Lengths and after reading up on it, I opted to commit!

Given that I’ll be back in Tanzania by this Saturday (cannot believe how quickly my five week stay has flown by), I had a rather animated Albanian hairstylist make the cut for me just days ago!

Before: Golden locks like Rapunzel



Pantene requires a minimum of eight inches–I ended up cutting about ten inches off!!
Ponytail no more!

Envelope for Pantene! Note Pantene has a partnership with American Cancer Society, providing real-hair wigs to cancer patients! Done and done!


The new ‘do! I haven’t had hair this short since third grade!
