What a Kubwa (Big) Night!

The 4th Annual Chamwino Connect Fundraiser was GRAND and we are SO thankful for the folks who came out to support us! It was a fun night playing Chamwino bingo, making mad dashes for last minute silent auction bids and enjoying the Tanzanian bites.

We are thrilled to share that our donors helped raise over $19,000!

We truly appreciate the incredible generosity that will have a long lasting impact to the youth of Chamwino. With the funds raised, CC will be able to continue and grow our educational programs in the following ways in 2018:

  • 30 children will get a head start through the early education learning center operated by CC.

  • We can continue supporting students on scholarship and increase the number of scholarships in 2018! These scholarships will be going to students who do not have the financial support to attend secondary school or college!

  • We will be able to provide better education materials such as books, e-readers, computers other classroom materials for students and teachers to access.

Here are some fun photos of the evening!
