After one year in Tanzania, I am home in California, enjoying all the family, friends and food I missed over the last year! But this summer is also a time for me to raise funds for the next school year in Tanzania. Come September I will be back in Moshi for another year of volunteering, this time teaching Kindergarten and 1st Grade.
I have really loved getting to know the people of Moshi - they have so many needs, but they are always ready to greet me with a smile and a warm welcome. I am honored to be a part of a school that reaches out to this community that I have grown to love. Even in its first year, the school has touched many families and given kids a wonderful experience of school like they've never known. Other local schools are over-crowded or over-priced so that many people don't even have the option of sending their children to school. Hope International is providing an educational opportunity that is unique and personalized to each child.
From the school's website (hopeschoolmoshi.org):
"Hope International School of Arts emphasizes a sound academic foundation, experiential learning, moral character and the expression of creativity through the arts. We partner with students, teachers, parents and God to develop the whole student --mind, body and spirit."
As I prepare to head back to this mission field, your support is critical. You can partner with me through prayer, staying in touch and encouraging me while I'm there, and also through your financial support. As a second year teacher, I am playing a bigger role with fundraising. I am raising support for my basic living costs and the school supplies and costs for my class. There are so many things not available in Tanzania I want to pack to bring over to my kindergartners, but I can't do it alone.
Thank you for considering partnering with me on this adventure!!
