Hope for Tanzania

Tanzanian Lunch

Published 02 December 2012

On November 25th, Maggie Zimmermann gave a presentation at Emmanuel Community Church in Duffield following her recent visit to Tanzania. About 50 people came for a lunch of beans, chicken and rice which was prepared by the trustees of HFT. Maggie then spoke about the visit, her impressions and learnings, illustrating the talk with photos and videos. She gave out a challenge of the need to sponsor children from poor backgrounds who would otherwise not have an opportunity to attend school. Maggie was particularly struck by the children's enthusiasm to learn but shocked by the rote learning methods still used within the educational system. Perhaps her lasting memory was of unbelievable generosity from the many people who invited her for meals and gave gifts despite them being very poor. We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and were all delighted by the interest and support from people who came along.
