Summer 2011 was a very busy time for TEMBO both in Canada and in Tanzania. The season started off with very two very successful fundraising efforts, the Great Glebe Garage Sale and TEMBO’s annual plant sale. A huge thank you to all the TEMBO supporters who worked tirelessly to help with both of these events. Thanks to your efforts we were about to raise important funds to support TEMBOs work and generate greater awareness of our programs in Tanzania. TEMBO returned once again to Westfest in June. The popular annual event is always a great opportunity for TEMBO to connect with many of our longstanding supporters and to meet many new friends. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth to lend a hand or say hello. In Tanzania, the 2011 TEMBO English Camp (TEC) was a tremendous success with the girls participating in a 3 week residential language camp designed to help them improve their English and boost their self confidence as they prepare to continue with their secondary school studies. As well, the August 2011 edition of ‘Traveling with TEMBO’ will provide travellers with memories to last a lifetime as they see first hand the impacts of TEMBO’s ongoing projects as well as enjoy an amazing safari through the national parks of Tanzania.
The next several months will also be busy for TEMBO. We hope you will be able to join us at the National Women’s Show at Lansdowne Park in September and our annual luncheon in December. Please visit our Events page for the latest updates on these and all of TEMBO’s upcoming events
