Dear AfricAid supporters,

Thank you for your generous support to build computer labs in schools in northern Tanzania. We are currently in the process of installing computer labs in our newest 4 partner schools and it is all thanks to your contributions! 

These schools will not only be home to a computer lab but will also host our Kisa Program, a program where secondary school girls learn vital life and entrepreneurial skills through weekly mentorship. The students in the Kisa programs as well as all the students in the school will benefit greatly from this new technology as it will teach them skills they will need to get jobs and improve the quality of their lives. Providing the students with these opportunities would not be possible without your support.

Thank you for your support.

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

First let me say THANK YOU! We're thrilled that you've chosen to support our school lunch program which continues to provide the critical need for a nutritious lunch to students at Losinoni Primary School. These children, many who walk many miles to and from this rural school, need food to to help them concentrate and stay healthy throughout the day. And since we started the school lunch program at Losinoni School, attendance increased 30% and graduation rates increased 20%.

Do you know that $25 feeds 950+ children a nutritious lunch for a day?  

Because of your generous support, we are able to keep up with the growing demand for lunches and have been able to provide 200 more lunches to the students each day.

Thank you for helping.

Hello dear AfricAid supporters,

Thank you so much for your support to help supply texbooks to classrooms in Tanzania.  We set a goal of reaching $6,000 and with the help of 126 generous donors like yourselves we only have $825 left to go!  Once we have raised this money, we can deliver text books to Tanzanian students that allow them to improve their lives and their community.  Books are such a fundamental part of education that they are often taken for granted in the U.S.  Books are vitally needed in Tanzania where students and schools often cannot afford them.

Thanks to your generous support, children throughout Tanzania will receive books to enhance their educations. An educated child will continue to improve his/her community, creating a positive impact on the entire country.  

We're so grateful for you! Asante sana!  

Elizabeth Abshire
