The first students arrived at KARUCO! They make up the inaugural class and will be the Karagwe University College’s first graduating class. What an exciting time we are having in Tanzania. Educate Tanzania Inc is celebrating in high gear that the agricultural college that was in the making for a few years is now established and receiving its students.
It has been a very busy week for all at KARUCO. The newly appointed Principal, Dr. Brighton Katabaro reported that over 700 applications were reviewed for possible positions at KARUCO. The review team established a strict selection procedure and was diligent in implementing the process. We look forward to reporting on the selection process and showing ETI supporters the biographies of those who will serve KARUCO in professional positions.

From the KARUCO Website: KARUCO College was founded by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania – Karagwe Diocese. The college engages in training, research, community outreach and environmental conservation programs that produce a competent, skilled, entrepreneurial and ethical workforce, which in turn participate in building a prosperous, just and sustainable society.
Please remain with us as this amazing journey unfolds. Be part of the story!
NOTE: RIP FRIDA KEMILEMBE BAGONZA
Our celebratory mood was struck down with the passing of Frida Bagonza, the wife of Dr. Benson Bagonza, Bishop of the ELCT/Karagwe Diocese. Bishop and Frida have been part of the ETI story since its inception and in fact, Dr. Bagonza was the originator for KARUCO and ROCs. Frida had just completed her Masters at St. Mary’s in Minnesota and was diagnosed with cancer. It was agressive and took her life three months later. She was a loving wife and mother and a friend to many. She was brilliant and a strong example of what a woman can do when given access to the tool of education. God bless your soul, Frida Kemilembe Bagonza.
