Supply Textbooks for 10 Classrooms in Tanzania

May 11, 2011

Delivering books at Losinoni Primary School!

Dear friends,

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.

During my upcoming school visits, I will have the chance to oversee the distribution of textbooks at AfricAid's partner schools. By the time we write you next, we will be able to share photos and testimonials from those schools. We know that the students of Losinoni Primary School will be especially ecstatic to receive copies of "On My Way To School," a book written about Tanzanian childrens' walk to school each day. We know that these books are creating vital learning opportunities for Tanzanian students -- opportunities are rare for the majority of Tanzanian students. Thank you for making this possible!

I have attached a photo below. I hope that the smile of this Tanzanian student helps to convey just how needed and appreciated your support is!

We look forward to writing next time with photos and testimonials from the partner schools receiving your books!

All my best,

Ashley Shuyler
