Tomorrow morning, I will be leaving for my annual visit to Tanzania. During my six weeks there, I will be visiting several of AfricAid's partner schools, all of which are doing important work to support education in this East African nation. I couldn't be more excited to see how our students have grown in confidence and leadership over the past year.
AfricAid is continuing to provide a daily school lunch for 750 students at Losinoni Primary School. We couldn't do this without your support! We will be leading a group of 11 people to stay for several days at Losinoni village in just a few weeks and while there, we will receive a report from the school leadership about the ongoing impact of the program. At last year's annual meeting, we learned that attendance had increased by 30% at the school since starting the school lunch program, and that transition rates from Losinoni to secondary school have jumped from 20% to 98% at the same time. By the time we write next to you, we hope that we have even more exciting information to share about the program!
I have attached a photo from Losinoni, below. I hope that the smile of this woman in Losinoni's kitchen helps to convey just how needed and appreciated your support is!
All my best,
