After another successful summer in Tanzania, Emma Raynes and I would like to extend many thanks to DukeEngage and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University for supporting the LTP Arusha DukeEngage program.
A special thanks to Omari Mkombole, Godfrey Augustino, Violet Mlawosa and Ephraim Simbeye at the Arusha Municipal Education Office for endorsing LTP Arusha, sponsoring teacher workshops and making it possible for hundreds of Arusha teachers and thousands of students to become involved.
We are especially grateful to work with Pelle Shaibu, our DukeEngage co-leader and the local coordinator of the year-round LTP Arusha program. Thank you to the team of LTP teachers who has taken a lead in developing and shaping LTP Arusha for several years. This advisory team includes teachers Musa Lumbano, Patrick, Kimbwereza, J. Majaliwa, Evasia, Jane, Isaria, Sarah and Mohammed Abdi.
Finally, we’d like to thank our 2010 DukeEngage student participants: Aadya Despande, Nate Glencer, Ian Harwood, Kirstie Jeffrey, Erin Malone-Smolla, Wilma Metcalf, and Cameron Setzer, as well as Kaitlin Rogers, a Duke graduate who has spent three summers working with LTP Arusha.
Included here is the first edition of the “Arusha Education News,” which students envisioned and produced along with Omari Mkombole and Godfrey Augustino. To read more about the summer 2010 program, please click here: Arusha Education News
