Shimbwe Village

On August 2, I joined Ambassador Maajar and her sister Dr. Eve Hawa Sinare for a weekend at their Shimbwe village home for the purpose of visiting Sia Secondary School which would like to receive the Powering Potential Educating-Through-Technology program. It had been raining and we needed to buy boots for the muddy trek to the school.

Segal visit to Tanzania

From Janice Lathen, Founding Executive Director:

I finished up a three week trip to Tanzania, returning home on August 10. It was a very fruitful trip. The Segal Family Foundation had invited me to escort Rich and Joanna Segal on a trip through Tanzania to visit grantee sites and for a three day animal viewing safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Thank you to the Segals for treating me to an exciting trip. It was a pleasure to spend a week with Rich and Joanna.

We visited two Powering Potential schools, Florian and Welwel, and had a meeting at the District Commissioner's office and the District Executive Director's office. We also met, at Welwel Secondary School, with district officials, heads of schools, computer teachers, and Powering Potential program graduates and staff and spent the afternoon discussing the best way forward. It was an informative meeting for all involved.
