Hello Friends of Tanzania
Primary Schools for Africa Society had a fantastic year, thanks to our new and continuing supporters;
Artist Alicia Lee of Victoria continues to donate 50% of the proceeds of her painting sales to us.
BC Ferries Corporation has achieved their goal of raising funds to sponsor the construction of a classroom. Their classroom will be built in 2014.
The Make A Wish Foundation of Canada has selected us to realize the dream of a quadruple amputee to build a classroom in Africa. Their donated funds will sponsor a new classroom to be built in May 2014.
Our first “Coins For Classrooms” partner, Glenwood Elementary School in Maple ridge, BC, is creatively fundraising to provide sports equipment, school supplies and perhaps sponsor the cost of a classroom. And 30 Glenwood pupils are now starting up a pen-pal relationship with their 30 Tanzanian counterparts at the Gongali Village School.
Four persons are signed up for our first "Climb For Classrooms" fundraiser; a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro in Sept 2014. Proceeds will build a new school building. After their descent, the climbers will be treated to the opening ceremonies of the new classroom building.
