"Better Books for a Better World"

"The Nautilus Book Awards represent the highest achievement of the writer’s craft.  Nothing less.  It’s all about envisioning a better, more peaceful, more caring world — both for us and for our fellow creatures and Mother Earth." - T.A. Barron of Philomel Books / Penguin Young Readers Group.
 
Published in December 2013 by Oreteti Press, Time is Cows: Timeless Wisdom of the Maasai is written by Dr. Tanya Pergola in collaboration with Terrawatu's Co-Founder Lekoko Ole Sululu. In April 2016, Time is Cows was awarded a Silver Medal in the category Multicultural / Indigenous by the Nautilus Book Awards.

This prestigious award places Time is Cows in the company of some of the greatest leaders and teachers of our time: Desmond Tutu, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Jean Houston, Thich Nhat Hanh, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Dr. Tanya will be signing copies of the book at the annual American Library Association conference in Orlando, Florida on the 26th of June and participating in healing rituals in the city that has been suffering in recent weeks.

More about the award-winning book Time is Cows: Timeless Wisdom of the Maasai can be found on the book's Website.

Since its publication, a portion of proceeds from book sales have been supporting Terrawatu and its projects in Maasai communities.
Terrawatu's Tech Projects

Since the completion of the school building at Natema Primary School, the Terrawatu Team has been busy connecting with partners who can provide devices, improved Internet connectivity and eLearning content both for Natema and Terrawatu's other partner schools and facilities in the region. 

We are putting the final touches on a very exciting proposal that we will be sure to share with all of you in the coming weeks.

"Computer technology helped me to open my eyes and expand my knowledge of understanding from my community. It makes things easy in knowing human rights and what’s a child right in a developing world. And this makes me understand globalization in deep.
 
I am in Form 5 now. Technology helped me to start my own business. Using technology it’s easy starting the business and monitoring. It’s easy advertising your products. I can be able to provide photocopy service and printing and emails as well. Technology can take me to a different level of understanding and take me to a business competition and I can advertise my products and my country too."

 
- Ms. Witness Olais Daniel, graduated Ilkiding’a Secondary in 2014 after learning tech at one of Terrawatu's school computer labs.
Terrawatu's New Proposal includes upgrading devices to laptops and tablets sourced locally in Tanzania, exploring the use of TV White Space technology to deliver low cost internet – particular in hard to reach areas, and eLearning content in both Swahili and English.
