March Project Update

First off, a big thank you to all of you for believing in the need to bring healthcare to even the most remote areas of the world. Your generous donations are helping us get that much closer to building Kikomolela its first health clinic.

We are excited to announce that we partnered with LivingSocial in early February to fundraise for this project! This June, LivingSocial Middle East members will summit Mount Kilimanjaro and in their lead up to the climb, they will be raising funds to support the construction of this clinic. A special fundraising event will be hosted by LivingSocial Middle East at the end of May where the company will announce the two biggest fundraisers for the LivingSocial Kilimanjaro climb and help raise even more funds for the project. You can read the full press release here.

As we reported in our last update, we need to raise nearly $7,000 to begin the first phase of the project, which entails constructing the substructure and framing. We are hopeful that the continued generosity of donors like you combined with the LivingSocial fundraiser will allow us to begin construction by early summer.

And if you live in or near NYC, we would love for you to join us at our 21st annual Artists for Africa benefit this April 11th where you can learn even more about our mission to support grassroots community development and conservation projects in Tanzania.
