Chalula library project in Tanzania: Open for readers...

Bruce and Rosemary Harris just got back from Tanzania, where they helped put finishing touches on the new library in Mvumi village. The beautiful building is one of the nicest among the various FAVL managed libraries. Kudos to Bruce and Rosemary, who led the effort. The project was conceptualized by a group of Habitat for Humanity volunteers who had been in the area building houses, and decided to strike out into library support. They all tapped into a deep network of generous friends and family... it goes without saying that the library is going to make a huge difference, especially for the village students. We are hoping that people will want to visit and volunteer in the library when they are in the area, near Dodoma ... just a long 8 hour bus ride from Dar es Salaam! Drop us a line if you want to get added to the mailing list.
