Hello Everyone! It’s dawn in Amsterdam. Team ETI arrived in Amsterdam following the first leg of the trip from Minneapolis to Tanzania. Our trip is for the purpose of attending the Dedication & Inauguration of KARUCO -Karagwe University College in NW Tanzania. ETI has partnered with Karagwe Diocese since 2010 to establish the college of agriculture and educate youth and farm families in Karagwe and introduce new methods of farming and agribusiness-related technologies.
One leg down; two to go. The flight was uneventful- just the way we like them. A couple of movies, some sleep and two meals later ... we are across the Atlantic and on another continent. One more continent and two more legs to go (one flight and then ground transport to Karagwe).
We departed Minnesota on October 25 and arrived the next ‘morning’ in The Netherlands. We have a couple of hours in The Netherlands and will then be on our second leg of the journey: Amsterdam to Entebbe, Uganda.
Our mission: Educate Tanzania partners with developing communities in Tanzania and other countries to promote and sustain economic and social prosperity through education. Our first project: Establish Karagwe University College in NW Tanzania.
Raised in a close, Minnesota farm family who took travel adventures all over the U.S. and Canada, I was introduced to community and global causes. I maintained a global focus with my husband and as a professor who helped build learning centers around the world. I resigned my university position and am President/CEO of a Minnesota-based nonprofit building KARUCO-Karagwe University College- in Tanzania. Our partners too are globally minded and intent on bettering their lives and economic condition. This blog will help tell the story.
