This quarter we did not receive funds - but we got human resource support through 5 intern students who were sponsored by the British Insitute of Physics (IOP). The students were very commitment to strengthen every department of our organization. In particular, they stabilized the data collection system - IT Department. We normally receive data of water sales from Nanofilter Water Stations (sent by Operators who use their small phones). But the IOP-sponsored students were having smartphones that assisted them to send the data directly to our internet link by using a mobile App. This is a great breathrough in our organization - on data collection.

We are also happy that we will receive further support from the in-coming new volunteers from UK (3 students), U.S (1), and Tanzania (10). These Volunteers will assist TAHUDE Foundation in the grand campaign in Africa - To raise funds for 700 Biogas systems in rural areas. This will be a commendable milestone in our organization history and a life-time memory to our beneficiaries.

Please kindly let us know how you would like to be involved in this greatest campaign in our history. Your insights, comments, advice, etc, could bring a breakthrough. You may also involve your family and friends to see how they can make impact with us. We are open-minded and know for sure that supports may come in different ways - not only by financial contributions. So, please kindly contribute your thoughts and expertise as it is convenient to you. You can send an email directly to me: hilonga@gmail.com or phone call: +255764574919 (also on WhatsApp).

This quarter we reached another milestone of introducing our biogas project in new District of Mbulu in Manyara Region - Tanzania.

Our progress this quarter:

i. Four (4) biogas are completed

ii. Four (4) biogas construction is ongoing

iii. Eight (8) have submitted their forms and six (6) will submit by next week.

Our target was to complete 20 biogas systems but the weather condition (it was the rain season) limited our operations. Now the rain has ended - we are moving fast, from July 2018.

In this quarter we were able to conduct the first public marketing and training session in Mbulu District, Manyara Region. The program was accompanied by reforestation program in which we distributed a total of 540 trees to all 108 people who attended. The program was covered by media, as shown in the below link and a representative photo.

Also we established a good networking with other NGOs and got training on a remote sensor installation. As explained above, our main challenge in this quarter was the "rain season". But it is over now. We have agree with the district agriculture officer and district cooperative officer of Mbulu district to organize a training to all Mbulu cooperative members to sensitize them through their groups. This will give us access to hundreds of members of those cooperative groups.

With your support, we are planning to hit our target of 700 beneficiaries by end of 2020. Please kindly see how you can assist us to scale-up our campaign. There are many ways you can help us - not only through financial support. Please kindly let us know how you would like to be involved more.

This quarter we did not receive funds - but we are so glad that at last we have got a massive support for our project. We just received confirmation for 3 students volunteers from UK, 1 from U.S, and 10 from Tanzania. These Volunteers will assist TAHUDE Foundation in the grand campaign in Africa - To raise funds for Solar Lanterns to 1 Million African children in rural areas. This will be a commendable milestone in our organization history and a life-time memory to our beneficiaries; the school children.

So far, by July 2018, our project has been on GlobalGiving for 4 years - with 110 donors. We have benefited more than 3,000 children in rural Africa. With this experience we are now ready to scale-up our intervention and impact more lives in our lifetime.

Please kindly let us know how you would like to be involved in this greatest campaign in our history. Your insights, comments, advice, etc, could bring a breakthrough. You may also involve your family and friends to see how they can make impact with us.
