We were so excited to launch this clinic project this past summer and even more excited to visit the Kikomolela community this past fall and learn how invested they are in making this project a reality. Can you imagine what it must feel like to finally be told that there is a community of donors out there mobilizing to help you construct your village's first health clinic? Amazing! Thank you for so generously donating to this project and helping to get it off the ground. 

Attached, you will find a couple schematics of the clinic to help you visualize what it will look like when all is said and done. We have also uploaded a detailed project budget to our project page on GlobalGiving in order to give you a better idea of the costs that go into constructing a health clinic in Tanzania. We need to raise an initial $6,800 to begin the first phase of the project, which entails constructing the substructure and framing. 

And in case you are wondering who is leading this project on the ground, we have profiled TFCG Field Officer Raymond Nlelwa on our blog, including a video introduction from him. Please find links below. We think you'll be as impressed with Raymond as we are. This project couldn't be in better hands!

Please consider helping us spread the word about this project during the holiday season. GlobalGiving makes it super easy to make a donation in honor of a friend or loved one and will send the gift recipient a customized email, print-at-home, or physical tribute card – your choice!

From all of us at ARC, warmest wishes this holiday season. We look forward to being in touch in early 2012 with another project update.
