Thank you!! With your generous support, we made our $75,000 fundraising goal just in time for our August 31st deadline! We are pleased to announce that we have received our $75,000 matching gift.
Your contributions towards this campaign has enabled us to complete construction on a 2-in-1 teachers’ house (a duplex) at Oloipiri Primary School, and on a medical dispensary (small health clinic) and staff housing in Sukenya Village. These projects make an incredible difference to the Maasai in these communities. Oloipiri Primary School is set in a very remote community in Loliondo, Tanzania. The school currently has more than 500 students and only eight teachers; in a remote area like this one, the community has to provide housing in order to request additional teachers for the school. The new housing will enable the school to request new teachers in time for the start of the new school year in January.
The medical dispensary and staff housing in Sukenya Village will make an incredible difference to multiple communities in the area. Currently the Maasai in this area have to walk more than 14 miles to access healthcare. The dispensary will provide basic healthcare within this community, making it much more likely that the Maasai will get needed care in a timely manner.
These projects are possible thanks to your gifts to FoTZC during this campaign. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Asante sana!!
