Supply Textbooks for 10 Classrooms in Tanzania

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

Thank you so much for supporting our program to supply textbooks to students in Tanzania.  Because of your generosity, we've almost reached our goal -- only $750 left to raise and we will have completely outfitted 10 classrooms (about 400 children) at Upendo Primary School in Tanzania with necessary school text books.  In Tanzania, universal primary education is the goal and tuition is free at government schools.  However, many impoverished families struggle to pay for text books and uniforms.  AfricAid helps these families by assisting with these fees so more Taznanian children can go to school and build meaningful futures.

Your support is greatly appreciated.  Asante sana!

Elizabeth Abshire
