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!
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!!
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.
