Most recently, the Executive Director of Maryknoll Lay Missioners, Sam Stanton, visited EBLI to see the specific work that Michael Leen is doing and the various projects of EBLI and impact in the local community. Sam, along with Michael, visited one young mother, Mariam, at her hair salon business and then was also able to visit her home and school where her daughter is being educated. Then Sam and Michael visited another young mother, Mary, who is employed with Vodacom, the leading mobile phone company in Tanzania, where she works in the field of customer care. Finally, Sam visited the office of EBLI to see first-hand the ninth batch of young mothers who are studying computers, along with the students studying in the newly-openeding secondary education centre, and of course to meet the entire staff.
It was a wonderful visit, and as always, guests are such a blessing. EBLI would like to thank Sam and Maryknoll Lay Missioners for their ongoing support.
