Dear AfricAid supporters,

Happy 2013 to you!  I'd like to thank you for your very generous support of our school lunch program at Losinoni primary school in Tanzania.  Losinoni is a very rural, Massai community just north of Arusha where many children walk 1-2 hours to school each day.  With such long walks, the children need nourishment at lunch-time in order to concentrate and learn. 

The Losinoni school lunch program is an ongoing program that feeds the entire school, 950 children, a nutritious lunch each day for the cost of $25 U.S.  We are proud to partner with Losinoni school on this program and have worked to keep the cost of the program flat even with rising global food prices.

We plan to continue the program throughout 2013 and thank you for your ongoing support.  So far, we haven't missed a day for lunch for these amazing children.

Thank you,

Elizabeth

Dear AfricAid supporters,

Happy 2013 to you!  I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your amazing support to bring computer labs to secondary schools in northern Tanzana.  The computer labs enable a whole community to learn life-changing computer skills and provide valuable opportunities to learn and grow.

We are able to install a computer lab for just $5,000 U.S. using innovative technology that uses a desk-top as a server to run 10 independent work stations.  We also run our labs on Linux to avoid problems with viruses that cripple many computer labs in Africa.

In 2012, we completed 5 new labs.  We are planning 3 for the first half of 2013.

Asante sana for your support!

Students at Upendo school with e-readers

Dear AfricAid supporters,

Happy 2013 to you!  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your very generous support.  Supplying textbooks is a crucial need in Tanzania where many schools operate without textbooks and many other students share 4-5 to a textbook.  Supplying textbook is a tangible, simple way to start improving the quality of education to thousands of children in Tanzania.

AfricAid is proud to partner with 9 secondary schools and 2 primary schools in the Arusha area.  We buy textbooks in Tanzania to save on shipping costs and ensure they are the correct ones to fit the curriculum.  We regularly buy batches of textbooks and deliver them to our partner schools.  Our last delivery occurred last December -- it was a wonderful holiday gift to our partner schools.

Thank you for your support as we move closer to our goal of providing textbooks to 10 full classrooms in Tanzania.

Asante sana,

Elizabeth
