Miririni and Nkoasenga Secondary Schools

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012


Nkoasenga Secondary School is led by the vibrant Fides Shirima. Shirima was the only school head who attended the principal’s meeting plus all three days of workshops. Shirima’s laugh is infectious but it’s her dedication to her students and school that’s truly admirable. Mkoasenga has German donors who support the…

Market Day, Tanzania 2012

July 19th, 2012


Children smiling, women in colourful kangas and an assortment of good for sale were the sights that greeted us as we arrived at Leguruki on market day. The market was alive with vendors selling, women buying and children watching the wazungus (the foreign visitors) walk through the market. My eyes were immediately…

First Day of Workshops in Leguruki, Tanzania, 2012

Monday, July 16th


Our first day of workshops at Shiston Secondary School in Leguruki Ward in Tanzania passed in a flurry of smiling faces, discussion and plans for the week.

Teachers were from the five secondary schools in the ward: Shiston, Leguruki, Maruvango, Mirini and Nkoasenga. The morning started with questions that would guide the discussions for our week. Groups were…

Arusha, Tanzania 2012

July 13, 2012


I’ve already been in Tanzania for six days which is so hard to believe. I already feel so far away from my usual western world. When I arrived last Sunday evening the Kilimanjaro airport was crowded with people arriving to climb the mountain or others ready to go out on safari. I felt like an anomaly in the crowd, more visitor than tourist. Abu picked me up and we headed down the highway for the forty five minute drive to Arusha. With the window rolled down I…

You Are the Kids’ Best Companion

Into a foreign language they need to dive

They are naturally zealous, curious, energetic, and alive

Provide them with adequate tools to survive

And consider the…
