Spring Update!

Dear AfricAid supporters,
The Losinoni Lunch Program continues to thrive and provide many students with much needed nutritional meals. Curious what the funds for this lunch program actually provides??
In the months of January and February of this year, AfricAid was able to purchase:
20 bags of Maize

20 bags of Haskings  

2 bags of beans, 

60 liters of cooking oil                                                 


These simple ingredients come together to feed over 950 students each day at Losinoni. We are so thankful for your support of this program. We hope to continue to feed the bodies of the students so they can better feed their minds with knowledge!!

Spring Update

AfricAid's Tanzanian staff has been busy planning and preparing for this summer's Teaching In Action (TIA) workshop. There is much to organize in bringing together teachers and leaders from across Tanzania for this unqiue and powerful workshop. We look forward to the dialogues and the sharing of ideas and techniques that will unfold this summer!

We also want to share the exciting news that our TIA program will soon be expanding! In the fall AfricAid will be adding a school-based training component to TIA. This means that even more teachers across Tanzania will be trained in student-centered, participatory teaching techniques. And with more highly-trained teachers, even more students will have the tools to become critical thinkers and potential leaders in their communities. 

You donation allows AfricAid's programs, like TIA, to continue to grow and expand. We are so thankful for your generosity and support of our work.

Spring Update

February marked the end of another school year for our Tanzanian students. This month students are on a much deserved vacation and will return to classes in April to continue their studies.

Through your continued generosity, AfricAid is currently supporting 10 girls' secondary school educations through scholarships. We look ahead with much anticipation to the graduation of our scholarship students. In a country where only 5% of girls graduate from secondary school, graduation will be an incredible feat that will certainly be celebrated! 

Thank you again for your support of this project and the opportunities that your generosity has created in the lives of these young women.
