AEP has a Vision, Principles, Goals and 'Life Lines"!

Wow, we have made such amazing progress since I returned to Vermont 4 months ago! I never would have guessed that African Empowerment Project would have advanced this far since my initial visit to Tanzania a little over a year ago! Thanks to all who played a part in bringing us to this place!

Home and moving forward...

Though it is so good to be home with family and friends, initially I felt out of place... like a fish out of water. It has taken a while to adjust to this way of life... all that we are so privileged to have here... knowing what I left behind in Tanzania. However, my very wise son shared this wisdom with me last year when I returned from Africa with these same feelings, "Mom, this is the life we have created for ourselves and the culture we live in.... just appreciate everything we have... and then go back and make a difference..." Those words are ringing clear to me now as I readjust to the wonderful life we do have here in America.

...so much to share.....

Sorry it has been so long since I communicated on here!
Computer issues, health issues, and the way of life here in Tanzania are all to blame!
What have I been doing?
I visited Kalimata NGO (Non government Organization), a center for women starting their own small businesses. I love the concept of this program. The organization was started by a few Dutch women providing micro loans ($2,000 to $6,000 loans,) to African women interested in a small business.

Slow and steady wins the race....

Hello and thanks for checking out my blog.....
I have been busy traveling over the New Year and have made some helpful connections as always. But first, before the travel I was able to spend some quality time with 2 of the children of Imuma Center for Orphaned and Vulnerable Children right after Christmas.
