Summer Reading for All!

Dear AfricAid supporters,

It is now summer vacation and time for us to enjoy digging into that ever-growing "must read" list of books or devour that "beach read" we've been waiting all winter. Whether reaching for that book on the coffee table or pulling out a kindle, a myriad of stories are just at the tips of our fingers. But for many of our students in Tanzania even coming face to face with a textbook is a rare luxury. What a gift a book is to a hungry mind, eager to learn.

We at AfricAid, passionately believe that education is the only way to truly uplift individuals and communities from poverty. Your gift of a textbook is so much more than just providing books to a classroom, your donations gives the incomparable gift of knowledge. Through your support of this project, you are helping to provide the tools our students need to grow, learn and become agents of change. 

Thank you for your support as we move closer to our goal of providing textbooks to 10 full classrooms in Tanzania.

Asante sana,

Elizabeth

Spring Update!

Dear AfricAid supporters,

We wanted to take a moment to share about one of our recently completely computer labs. AfricAid is pleased to announce that Orkeeswa Secondary school in Monduli (a small town outside Arusha) is now equipped with a fully- functioning computer lab. Orkeeswa is an isolated school up in a hilly region and hard to get to in the rainy season -- they even have elephants walk through the school area now and then. Can you imagine! 

While it is a beautiful location, such a remote location has created many challenges for the school. An on-site computer lab is a huge deal and now 250 students have access to computer technology and are beginning to build critical skills that will equip them for a brighter future! 

 

Asante sana for your support!

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                                                 

Salt                                                    

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!!
