Dear AfricAid supporters,

I hope this update finds you well and enjoying the fall.  I thank you for your support to feed Masaai school children at Losinoni Primary School in Tanzania.  Losinoni school has now grown to over 950 children and AfricAid is proud to fund a school lunch program for all the students.  The school is in a rural, Masaai community where many children walk up to 2 hours to and from school.  Since they are gone for so long each day, lunch is essential so the children can pay attention in class and learn.

Your support makes this program possible.  Even with increases in global food costs, we've been able to keep the program running continuously thanks to your generosity.

Anante sana!

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

Thank you so much for supporting our program to supply textbooks to students in Tanzania.  Because of your generosity, we've almost reached our goal -- only $750 left to raise and we will have completely outfitted 10 classrooms (about 400 children) at Upendo Primary School in Tanzania with necessary school text books.  In Tanzania, universal primary education is the goal and tuition is free at government schools.  However, many impoverished families struggle to pay for text books and uniforms.  AfricAid helps these families by assisting with these fees so more Taznanian children can go to school and build meaningful futures.

Your support is greatly appreciated.  Asante sana!

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

Happy fall to you! I hope this update finds you well and enjoying the change of seasons.

I want to thank you for your support to build computer labs in at schools in Arusha, Tanzania.  AfricAid installed 4 computer labs at 4 schools in 2012 giving computer access and training to 2,000+ Tanzanian children.  Even in Tanzania, computer skills are necessary to get a job and most homes and schools do not have computers available.  By bringing computers and computer training to these children, they have the chance at a more rewarding future.

Asante sana for your support!
