Help Miranda Go To Tanzania

Hi!  My name is Miranda and I'm a junior at Harvey Mudd College, part of the Claremont Colleges.  I've been offered the great chance of teaching HIV/AIDS awareness over the summer in Tanzania with Support for International Change (www.sichange.org).  

 From the organization's website: 
"Each program begins with an intensive, expert-led orientation. A week into orientation, volunteers move into a homestay with a host Tanzanian family. After orientation, your primary work as a volunteer will be to run an HIV/AIDS awareness campaign within your partner community. The majority of your time will be spent teaching, lesson planning, and training peer educators, and you will also be involved in community assessment work within your village. In addition to these responsibilities, we urge volunteers to take the lead on other projects related to our work."

There is a program fee associated with the project of $3300, as well as additional costs of airfare ($1500-$2000).  I hope to cover some of the costs with scholarship money (maximum of $3000), but that still leaves airfare and some of the program fee to pay for.  Any extra money will be spent on preparations for the project--vaccinations, proper clothing, luggage, etc.

I love helping others and now I get the chance to do that half a world away.  I get the chance to travel, explore the world, learn a new language, delve into a new culture, and make experiences of a lifetime.  Any help that you can offer, even if it's only a dollar, would be greatly appreciated!
