By Betsy Hoke | AfricAid Interim Executive Director
I am pleased to let you know that we are continuing to make a difference at eleven schools in Tanzania where we supply textbooks including our nine Kisa Project partner secondary schools and two primary schools, Upendo in Usa River and Losononi, a rural Maasai school.
As AfricAid’s interim executive director I spent two weeks in Tanzania in September and was able to see firsthand how important the textbooks are for students in Tanzania. When I first visited the country in 2011, I was shocked by the lack of materials and textbooks. It is a relief to know that students at these schools have appropriate textbooks that they can take home to study and work with during group lessons at school.
I spent several days working at Upendo School and I can tell you that the students and teachers were thrilled with the delivery of new textbooks. The children highly anticipated the chance to use them, as they love to learn and enjoy reading so much. Thank you for your support in improving the quality of education for so many students. We appreciate your generosity!
