TEMBO hosts successful fall fundraising event including online auction and virtual presentation and raises more than $15,000 in support of women and girls in northern Tanzania. Thank you to the many individuals and businesses across Canada that donated items and services for the auction – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Education lies at the heart of our work in Tanzania from secondary school sponsorship to literacy programs for women. Our virtual presentation will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about our projects as we explore ‘a day in the life of TEMBO’. Come and meet the women and girls supported by TEMBO. Visit a traditional Maasai boma and meet the women in the goat program, attend a tailoring class and listen to the girls talk about staying in the TEMBO Girls’ Hostel – virtually.
During this hour-long presentation, you will learn more about the impact of our programs in the community today and hear what lies ahead for tomorrow. The program provides lots of opportunity for questions from the audience.
This event is free. Registration is required.
Registrations will close 2 hours before the event begins.
