Achieve in Africa First Quarter 2011 Newsletter
Achieve in Africa Announces Next Project
Africa is pleased to announce that our next project will be constructing the
first secondary school in Olasiti village in northern Tanzania. In 2010, we
completed construction on two new classrooms for the overcrowded
Olasiti Primary School. Olasiti Village's most immediate need is now a secondary school.
We plan to
build Olasiti Secondary School in stages, one dual classroom building at a
time. The cost of a classroom is $5,000 USD. After construction, we will also
provide desks and other necessary supplies. For more
information about Operation Olasiti or how to help, please click here.
Community Learning Center Update
We are also
happy to announce that we have completed construction of the Community Learning
Center in the village of Ulolela in southern Tanzania!
Students are currently using the CLC for after-school studying, and we are working with
our team of volunteers to implement the curricula for HIV/AIDS awareness,
business fundamentals, agriculture and self-empowerment training. We will also outfit the CLC with solar panels in the upcoming months.

AIA Ambassador Program Launched
The AIA Ambassador Program provides resources
for students who are interested in gaining leadership experience by organizing fundraisers that will support education in Africa. When students express interest
in becoming an AIA Ambassador, they receive a packet, including:
- Welcome letter
- Sample flier and brochure
for promoting their fundraisers
This toolkit makes it easier for middle school, high school and college students to successfully
fundraise for Achieve in Africa by getting insight into what has worked well in
currently promoting the AIA Ambassador Program to numerous school groups. Please feel free to promote this program to schools or individuals who might be interested. For more information on the program or if you would like to get directly involved, please contact email@example.com.
