On January 16th, Eliza, our Director of Development and Operations, left for two months in Tanzania. While she is there, she will be visiting FoTZC projects and meeting with local politicians, village leaders, parents, students, and headmasters. She will also begin working on the medical dispensary in Loliondo, by conducting a health needs assessment of the communities it will serve.
The dispensary will serve roughly 6,000 Maasai, and little is known about the local health problems. Eliza will conduct focus groups and interviews with the local population to identify not only the biggest health issues in the area, but also what the local population perceives the biggest health issues to be.
She will post stories and photos on the blog along the way, so stay tuned for more updates!
