A lot of good things are happening, but YOU remain the vital missing resource!
The RCP program depends on short-term volunteers to present parent workshops; participate in home visits; teach English at the primary schools; tutor math, science, and geography at the secondary schools; work with the women’s cooperatives; help families construct chicken coops and fuel-efficient vented stoves; work in the greenhouse; serve alongside the Tanzania medical professionals at IGC; paint and repair community buildings; visit with and counsel pregnant women at the House for New Moms while they await their delivery date, and help with other community-based projects.
Your assistance now is more important than every before. Two family foundations have provided generous grants to the RCP program. One is funding earth boxes, chicken coops, and fuel-efficient vented stoves for 100 village families. Another provided money for the construction of a “House for New Moms” (HNM) which will offer a safe and healthy place for pregnant women to stay during the week or two before their delivery date. You’ll enjoy immersing in the Tanzanian culture by working work hand-in-hand with local people, under the direction of local leaders on projects that help children reach their full potential.
