Educational Equity in Tanzania

I have been given the ooportunity to go to Tanzania to provide equal education for aanadoned and orphaned children there, as well as work on sustainable clean water resources for villages.  I was awared a significant scholarship by my university to do this. However, there is some cost that falls to me. 

I have already started finding jobs to do to make the money. The problem is that with four kids, full time work, and six classes I am limited to how much time I can spend on these extra projects. 

I am asking that anyone that is able donate $5. Each person that does this will have their name added to a quilt that I will give to the school I will be working with when I arrive. This is a great way to donate to a worthy cause and know exactly what your funds will be paying for. I will share pictures and stories about the imapact that your donation has.

I will be in Tanzania with a host family for six weeks. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and for helping any way that you can!
