Tikkun Olam in Tanzania

Leave a comment

Dear Friends,

There are a lot of places to do Tikkun Olam in the world, including of course here.  We practice Tikkun Olam both here in our community, and also as many of you know in different parts of the world – most recently East Africa.

In 2013, we are going to volunteer in Tanzania to work in Massai villages in the north, around Arusha.  One of the projects that we want to do is teach children photography.  And so, we asking you, our friends to consider donating your used digital camera that we can bring along with us.  Photography is a very good way to help children communicate and bring out their creativity.  We have seen many examples of this around the world during our volunteering experiences.

If you don’t have a small digital camera to donate, you can make a small contribution which we will use to buy cameras.

We also want to bring some laptops with us for the NGO we will be working with – RISE Africa.  So please consider that also.  By the way, RISE is registered as a US 501 c 3, so any contributions, either in kind or cash are tax deductible.

Please consider helping.

Many thanks!

Peter and Hinda Schnurman
