TEMBO would like to thank the walkers, runners and cyclists who completed the TEMBO Challenge in May 2023, and to the many donors who supported the Village Walk.
Together, we raised $15,763 in support of women and girls in northern Tanzania.
Each day throughout the TEMBO Challenge, we shared stories about the experience of walking through the villages around Longido. If perhaps you missed a day or you would just like to read the stories again, we have posted them here for you to enjoy.
Our walk today begins at the foothills of Mt. Longido, beside the ‘ocean, a dam created to reserve water from the spring that flows down from the mountain.
Today, we are walking in Longido where a 7 km walk might take 3 hours thanks to the rich conversation and delicious chai that becomes a part of almost every visit.
As we arrive at Orbomba Primary School, it is just after lunch and the boys are filly engaged in a soccer match.
It is 6:30 a.m. in Oltepesi and the sun is just coming up over Mt. Kilimanjaro and the giraffes roam in and around the Acacia trees.
