Tanzania Library Expansion

I am a 16 year old Junior at La Salle College High School. I am raising money to expand a community library that our long-time family friends, the Mshombas, built in Tanzania. Richard Mshomba grew up in Tanzania and came to the U.S. to attend college. He is currently a professor at La Salle University with his PhD in Economics.

Two years ago, with the help of volunteers in Tanzania, he and his family built a one-room library in his home village of Sinon in Arusha. You can read more about the original project in the article below.

While this is an incredible achievement, more still needs to be done. I am working with the Mshombas to expand the library and provide more textbooks and laptops. Their library is only the second public library in a region with 1.7 million people. 

I would really appreciate any support you can provide.
