Community Connections – Ngongongare
From urban to rural Tanzania, we will make our way to the village of Ngongongare. The village sits in the foothills of Mount Meru and is the home community of our second partner, Jifundishe. Jifundishe is a local non-governmental organization focused on providing access to educational resources for all ages. We will join them in running entrepreneurship and leadership workshops in collaboration with their women’s micro-lending program and other groups in the community.
Beyond our projects, we’ll delve deeper with our community connections by participating in homestays while in the village. We’ll sip some delicious chai, learn how to make chapatti, and yes, even eat by candlelight!
Another bonus? We’ll be right on the edge of the Arusha National Park with some great hiking spots! This area is safari central! Don’t be surprised at the giraffe and elephant sightings on our way into town!
