162 new desks arrived at Karama School. A big Thank You to all sponsors that made this possible! Now, the two seater desks can serve two instead of four children. This is great progress providing a better learning environment for the children at Karama School.
Building new classrooms in a primary school can take a lot of time – not only in Africa, but also in Germany. I have never seen a construction of a public building being finished in less than 9 months – until we came to Tanzania.
During my flight back from Tanzania I watched the “Black Panther” movie, published by Marvel Studios in 2018. It is a story about a fictitious high tech state in Africa called Wakanda, that has been hidden from the rest of the world for many centuries.
Meeting children in Karama School in Tanzania was a great experience. Most of the time they were singing and dancing. It was great fun to watch them. And they like to play with each other. It was fun for me to play with them. They liked to shake hands. It was so easy to connect…
Just leaving Arusha behind, the land becomes dry and flat: Massai land. The number of cows, goats and donkeys crossing the road is increasing with every mile. And then you see them: the Massais, with their traditional red cape and their long stick.
Visiting several countries like Ukraine, Peru, or Tanzania I had the opportunity to see people supporting local communities in different projects and engaging myself. I experienced people differently in each country. Tanzania stands out with incredible happiness.
Warm, sunny, colorful, joyful – these are words that come to my mind. Not only the outer look like colorful women clothes but even more the inner – the joy in the heart of the people we met. For example, I was very positively surprised about our local partners from World Vision Tanzania.
