To the ends of the earth…and back!

Second Term Fun!

Well I am most happy to report I am mosquito-bite free thanks to Para’Kito!! Definitely recommend this to my fellow friends adored by Mosquitos!! See my previous post for more details on the product!

In other recent news, days have continued to be busy at Tumaini! For starters, the school now bakes bread…delicious bread!! Here’s the wonderful Julius with a fresh loaf!! Stay tuned for updates as preparations are made to sell the bread in the coming weeks! 20130623-234804.jpg

Six Tumaini students were recently selected to represent Karatu at the district level sports competition. Here are several students–four of whom are sponsored–at a volleyball practice with other Karatu district-level representatives!

Shortly following this practice, the six students traveled to Arusha for additional competitions! Here is one medal-laden student, Margaret, after her return from Arusha!

Most recently, two students have advanced to Dar es Salaam where they are competing as Arusha region representatives! Tumaini staff and students excitedly await their (we hope, victorious) return!

Finally, the sports court is coming closer to being user friendly! Games of netball, volleyball and basketball are on the horizon!

    Dear Elizabeth,

    I eagerly await every word coming out of your mouth about Tumaini. I am also eagerly anticipating Bayo’s trip to the U.S.A. in August and hope all logistic problems in Tanzania and the U.S. will be solved.

    Meanwhile, please update me about your own personal life. How are you? Where are you living now? When will you be coming back to the states for a vacation or more schooling or a job, or are you going to stay on for another year? I hope everything works out for the best.

    You are a great spokesperson for Tumaini and have been a mouthpiece for the ear of many friends of the school.
