August 2011 Update

Hello to our wonderful AfricAid supporters,

I am so happy to write this update upon arriving in the U.S. after spending 2 weeks in Tanzania in May and June.  It was amazing to witness our programs first-hand and to see them working and making a difference in girls' lives.

I saw how critical computer labs are to children in Tanzania.  I saw 2 labs that AfricAid had recently installed.  These labs give the students a valuable connection to the outside world and skills required to obtain a job upon graduation.   The young Tanzanian students I met were confident, bright, articulate and had a vision for their future and the future of their community.  With some basic skills and computer proficiency, it is amazing how these students blossom and slowly, one-by-one, help to transform the cycle of poverty in their community.

Thank you very much for your generous support.  We are committed to ensuring it goes directly to computer labs and spent wisely.

Asante sana,

Elizabeth Abshire

Executive Director
