Soon to be deployed at a Terrawatu partner school!!!
Dear friends of Terrawatu,

After months and months of exploring options for outfitting our Terrawatu partner schools with appropriate technology in the computer labs we have built, we FINALLY found a solution. And we are very excited about it! We have procured a Kio Kit (see video above) from Kenya that will be shipped to Tanzania in July. Our first kit will be piloted at Natema Primary School.

To prepare the teachers and school community for the Kio Kit's arrival, Terrawatu will be holding a series of workshops to identify the most effective way to integrate the technology into the curriculum. We are also providing laptops connected to the internet for teachers and administrators to use to improve their work.

Terrawatu is monitoring academic performance before and after the deployment of the Kio Kit at the school in order to assess usefulness. If found to be an effective technology, additional kits may be deployed in the future.

Wishing you a great day further.
Warmest regards,

Dr. Tanya and the Terrawatu Team in Tanzania
Tree Planting in Mkonoo Village

The rains came to Arusha region, in force. First there was a drought, then there were floods. As the climate changes more and more as the years go by, Terrawatu has been adapting as best we can. After being so patient, we returned to the village of Mkonoo a few days ago to assist the community with our on-going tree planting / reforestation project. Terrawatu provided seedlings of bougainvillea that, when grown, provide much needed shade from the hot sun. We also provided seedlings of plants used for fencing to protect homesteads.


 
 5 Bags Left!
At the end of last year, Terrawatu's Women's Group in Mkonoo Village completed production of a limited number of these stunning, handcrafted leather bags. They are available for purchase in the United States and Canada.

Its design is modeled after the traditional bag used to carry water. The leather is sourced from local cattle after providing people with an important food source. A Maasai woman has hand-beaded each bag in her own creative style which she hopes you will enjoy for many years to come. Your purchase of a handbag provides much needed income to the women of the village so they can help support their children.

The bags that are left are black and natural brown in colour. Each one has a unique design. To receive photos and pricing please email
