Thanks for following along on the blog. If this is your first time - Educate Tanzania is a Minnesota-based NGO that partnered with the Karagwe Diocese in Tanzania to build an agricultural university on 1000 acres. No small task. This blog documents five trips to Tanzania and a few 'in-betweens' to other places. Our latest adventure brought us to Washington DC to participate in the USAID/ASHA conference. Jan (ETI) and Sarah (Cohn Consulting) traveled to our Nation's capitol to glean all they could to write a winning application for $276,000. to construct the 'next' four buildings and enable KARUCO (Karagwe University College) to open in October 2016.

It was energizing. Other projects around the world are inspiring. But competition is fierce and we have our job cut out for us. Among other things, ETI needs to demonstrate:

• how KARUCO will eliminate extreme poverty
• sustainability and green school measures
• how KARUCO will be an agent for public diplomacy
• scalability
• intention to empower women as decision-makers

At the end of the conference, ETI dropped in on the Tanzanian Ambassador, Her Excellency Liberata Mulamula. The Ambassador received us, shared thoughts and a laugh and reiterated her strong support for Educate Tanzania. She sends her greetings to our growing family of supporters and donors.
