Education Week in Dodoma, Tanzania

On May 3, opening day of Education Week in Dodoma, Hon. Mizengo Pinda, Prime Minister of the United Republic of Tanzania visited a few exhibits and Powering Potential was one of them. We had an opportunity to demonstrate our program to him.

A short time later, Founding Executive Director Janice Lathen received a written invitation from the office of the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training to attend a luncheon that day for Tanzania's education leaders with the Prime Minister as the guest of honor.

We are very grateful for the opportunity to brief the Prime Minister on our Educating-Through-Technology program and honored to attend the luncheon. 

Education Week is a major event that will benefit teachers, students and education throughout the country and is being held at the Dodoma Jamhuri Stadium.
