So much is happening around ETI. Preparations to open KARUCO on October 29, 2017 are well underway. With that, all the activity to get the last-minute items checked off the list. The accreditation agency (TUMA) asked KARUCO leaders to provide more books in Agriculture for the library. Books for Africa has the libraries and unlike the other books from BFA, will provide those libraries at a cost. ETI has stepped in and purchased five of the six libraries while BFA donated one. The six libraries left the US this week and are estimated to arrive in Dar es Salaam on September 19. God speed.
In addition to the books for KARUCO, ETI is gearing up for the 3rd Annual Running for Victory 5K to be held August 6 at Staring Park in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Victory Lutheran Church, a long-time supporter and friend of ETI hosts an annual 5K each year with all proceeds going to Educate Tanzania Inc. We look forward to another year of solid 5K running/walking, kids events, fellowship and friends following the worship service to be held right after the race. Everyone is welcome – even the “Gazelles” (virtual runners who sign up – $25 – and help support ETI. Funds will be used to support KARUCO and the Rural Opportunity Centers in Karagwe. Join us!
