Dear AfricAid supporters,

Happy 2013 to you!  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your very generous support.  Supplying textbooks is a crucial need in Tanzania where many schools operate without textbooks and many other students share 4-5 to a textbook.  Supplying textbook is a tangible, simple way to start improving the quality of education to thousands of children in Tanzania.

AfricAid is proud to partner with 9 secondary schools and 2 primary schools in the Arusha area.  We buy textbooks in Tanzania to save on shipping costs and ensure they are the correct ones to fit the curriculum.  We regularly buy batches of textbooks and deliver them to our partner schools.  Our last delivery occurred last December -- it was a wonderful holiday gift to our partner schools.

Thank you for your support as we move closer to our goal of providing textbooks to 10 full classrooms in Tanzania.

Asante sana,
