We want to thank our speakers: Andrew McAlister, former High Commissioner for Canada to Tanzania, and MaryLu Beaupre, teacher volunteer who just returned for a month in Longido teaching in the PASS program.  Their talks were both informative and inspiring.

Our special thanks go to all of the donors to the online and silent auctions.  Many of our donors were local Ottawa businesses.  We thank them for their contributions and wish them well! We also thank the many people who bid on the online auction which was open for the 2 weeks preceding the luncheon  Their bids contributed to this tremendous success!

And finally, thank you to all of the people who worked in the kitchen, at the marketplace, selling tickets, gathering auction items, and generally just making it happen.  TEMBO is very fortunate to have so many wonderful volunteers.  Thank you for doing what you do to support the girls and women in Northern Tanzania!

See you next year!
