While visiting the Gerezani Primary School, a door of opportunity was set before us. It was a creaky old door, with peeling paint that led to a room filled with what looked like decades of dust. “Someday, the teachers dream that this room will be a library” the Headmistress told us.
In July 2014, we met with Education officials at the United States Embassy in Dar es Salaam to explain the need for additional English language books for Tanzanian school children and share our vision of building libraries and technology centers. We are super encouraged to hear that it didn’t take long for the books to arrive and in February 2.5 MILLION (!!) science textbooks have now been delivered by the United States for Tanzanian secondary school students. President Obama also understands that Tanzanian students need books to learn. He asked for help getting more books for Tanzanian school children during his visit to the country in 2013.
Way to go, USA!!! Study hard Tanzania!
