10 Sep Jifundishe: Filling Education Gaps in Tanzania
We were amazed and genuinely happy for the success of Jifundishe. What made us wonder is how Jifundishe in Tanzania has been so successful compared to the local YCCM library in Kisumu, Kenya. Besides being a much younger organization, YCCM does not have a representative with an established network of connections in the West. We learned from our partners that this is definitely a big struggle for the development of the YCCM library. With all of our combined studies in development, this connection with the western world and a built-in bank of donors is something we never expected as important.Despite their differences and challenges, we wish both organizations to grow and prosper, and to continue bringing education, opportunity, and community to people. They are truly heavens to people in their communities! Maria Ovsyannikova 2014 East Africa: Youth in Action.
