Hello AfricAid friends and supporters,

I returned from Tanzania in June and had the pleasure of delivering books to several classrooms.  It was incredible to see the happiness and pride the children took from the books.  In Tanzania, a book is a very precious gift and the children are grateful for the opportunity to have a book and go to school.  It was heart-warming to see the children's delight and their eagerness to read and learn.

Thank you very much for your generous support.  Without you, these children likely wouldn't have school books and many sit in class trying to simply remember everything the teacher says. 

At AfricAid, we're committed to growing our textbook program and will continue delivering books in Tanzania, ensuring they reach children in need who would have no other way to obtain them.  Together, we can make a difference.

Asante sana,

Elizabeth Abshire

Executive Director, AfricAid
