Hello from Tanzania!
Things have been going quite well since I arrived on Friday afternoon, and it looks like much of my agenda should be accomplished before I leave.
We have procured a number of items desperately needed at the school, including new teaching books to replace those that had been worn out, erasers, pens, and even a new jump rope for break time.
A local carpenter has been contracted to build two new desks, and we have discussed building the library shelving and a file cabinet for student records.
A few changes have been made to the design of the library, and have therefore changed the design of the bookshelves to A-frames. This does make the shelves more expensive than originally anticipated, but using this style of bookshelf will ultimately give us more versatility.
More updates should be forthcoming!
