Final Report

To Our Donors--

While AfricAid continues to believe that the establishment of a new Montessori learning center is an important and worthy endeavor, we have determined that the complexities associated with establishing a new school in Tanzania are significant, and require considerable additional time and analysis in order to deal with them. As a result, AfricAid has decided to put the project on hold for the meantime, pending further reseach by AfricAid representatives into the requirements associated with opening and certifying a school, and an in-depth, on-site analysis of the feasibility of the project itself. We are thus proposing to deactivate this project from GlobalGiving.

Your support of the project has been much appreciated, and will help enable AfricAid to undertake needed research and analysis. AfricAid still hopes to be able to reactivate the project at some future date.

Thank you.

January Update

In 2013, 11 schools in Tanzania received textbooks. These textbooks make a huge impact in the lives of the students and we cannot thank you all enough for being apart of this amazing outreach! Without text books, teachers struggle to teach the necessary information for students to learn school subjects. Textbooks allow students to not only see the information on the chalk board, but also see photos and find classroom activities designed for specific subjects and grade levels! Books allow children to re-examine the course content after the teacher has taught on the subject. Many students, as in all countries, often need time to study content multiple times to fully understand and textbooks make this possible. The previous Interim Director, Betsy Hoke's face lights up when she tells the story of seeing the children receive the books in 2013. They are always overjoyed and very thankful. AfricAid would love to expand this program to further schools needing textbooks in 2014. Without you we cannot make that happen, so join us in providing thousands of students in Tanzania with textbooks this year!
