As the summer wraps up, we would like to thank DukeEngage, the Center for Documentary Studies, Sister Cities of Durham, and Friends of Arusha for supporting our program in Tanzania. We’d also like to thank our DukeEngage students for their impressive service work, which involved collaborating with over 600 Arusha students and 45 classroom teachers.

Our DukeEngage students did a wonderful job of gathering support from friends and family. They raised over $3000 in cash donations and supplies, including film, cameras, digital printers, notebook paper, pencils, folders and art supplies.

Some of these supplies were used in after-school art and writing projects designed and run by Duke students. The contributions also went toward making the LTP Arusha Classroom Booklet (see previous post)—a how-to guide that features examples from projects carried out by Duke students. Finally, the contributions will provide participating teachers with the necessary materials to continue using LTP in their classrooms during the next school year.

The LTP staff would like to thank the following individuals for their generous donations:

Peter Rogers and Val Crotly
Karen and John Crotly
Vera Barbara Rogers
Jennifer and John Murawski
Pam and John Preschlack
Ronald and Louise Rogers
Helen Anderson
Karen and Grant Bogle
Paula and Jim Preschlack

  1. I came accross your blog while looking for bloggers from Tanzania. I must say I was really impressed by your writing and by the fact that Blogging is now really taking off in Tanzania. It is a very nice contribution you bloggers are making because it helps Tanzanians like me who live abroad to connect with home.

    My friends and I have just launched a Tanzanian forum called (TMeet) where we have created a Tanzanian bloggers community and we are currently compiling a list of all Tanzanian blogs and we are inviting you to add your blog to the list and join the first ever Tanzanian bloggers community. Please help us spread the word about TMeet to your readers and all bloggers and blog about us. Thanks a lot! We’ll be expecting for you.
