OUR LATEST ACTIVITIES
Young mothers having a lunch break between classes. Is there a connection between diet and education? Most students in Tanzania spend an entire day without food while in school.
A young mother learns how to do lamination, while her baby is taking a nap at EBLI Computer Literacy class. We appreciate and honour these young mothers who are fully dedicated to acquiring computer literacy and at times have had to come with a baby in class. Together we can make a little difference on the journey called life.
For the last 4 months, their teachers have prepared them extensively to acquire skills in using Microsoft office packages and become computer literate. These skills are in much demand in the local stationaries and are an added advantage when the young mothers apply for jobs in companies.
We all wish to thank and bid farewell to Steve Pope, a Maryknoll Lay Missioner and English teacher originally from Boston (USA), who is proceeding for further studies after spending 14 months working with EBLI. Especially the students of the English class will greatly miss you, Steve. Thank you for sharing your time, life and friendship. Your missionary spirit energized all of us and it’s our sincere prayer that you will blossom wherever you are planted.
