Petra’s Dream…

Posted by on Aug 2, 2016 in CWEF Tz Updates | Comments Off

I have had a dream for quite some time…and YOU CAN HELP ME EXECUTE IT!               Seven years ago I made my way from Tanzania to Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada on a one year exchange program to complete my Bachelors degree. My family’s financial situation could not support this academic opportunity but I was fortunate enough to receive a $15,000 scholarship, based on academic merit. After finishing my Bachelors, I continued on at Carleton to complete a Masters in Political Science with a...

Baba Rick Blog Post 2

July 14, 2012 It is early in the morning of the day that we leave Morogoro and the Morogoro region.  We’ve stayed five days, and they were five amazing days.  I can’t thank Julie enough for making it possble for me to make this trip.  Because of her initiatives, the work completed in Tanzania by her and Aaron last summer, the work and dedication of CWEF TZ and SASCO and my old age (LOL) I was the guest of honour at a nine-school sports day on July 12 and the recipient of a goat on July 13.  I also had a tree planted in my honour. The...

July 9, 2013 at 7:01 AM. I am in the capital city of Dodoma sitting in my room in the Hotel D.M. I just had my first hot shower since leaving Windsor 11 days ago on July 27. I’m not saying that cold, perhaps I should say, not-hot, showers are terrible, but a hot shower is certainly a pleasure. We arrived in Dodoma late last night after an 8 hour drive from Boma. The SASCO lodge at Boma is what we are calling home. Our long drive included about 30 kilometres of detours as the main road is under repairs. How lucky are we? Many people pay for...

Blog Week One: Karibu Boma Ng’ombe!

Posted by on Jul 4, 2013 in CWEF Tz 2013 | Comments Off

The madness really begins one day before I was supposed to fly to Amsterdam and then catch my flight from Schipol to Kilimanjaro Airport. Wei and I were enjoying the Rotary International Convention in Lisbon, Portugal and then I received a text message saying my flight from Lisbon to Amsterdam had been cancelled. We quickly learned that there was going to be a Portugal-wide 24 hour general labour strike starting at midnight and that all forms of transport would be walking out. I would be stranded in Portugal and would miss all my connecting...

Posted by on Sep 1, 2012 in Blog - Julie and Aaron from Boma Ng'ombe | 1 comment

Dearest blog-followers, friends, family, guests and ghouls… As you may all know, Julie and I’ve made it back to Toronto after a 15-hour commute via Dar es Salaam (largest city in Tanzania) and Amsterdam (Schiphol (which is pronounced as “Skip-ol”(I just learned this, recently!))).  This blog will be written by me and co-authored by Julie, or, if you prefer, written by Julie and co-authored by me (Batman and Robin, Robin and Batman, ok?). Anyways here it goes! SASCO opened to the public on the 23rd of August by hosting a ceremony...

Day 78/85

Posted by on Aug 20, 2012 in Blog - Julie and Aaron from Boma Ng'ombe | Comments Off

Hello faithful blog followers, and any new readers out there. Thanks for sticking with us, we are coming towards the end of our trip and mostly I am feeling pretty sad about it, when I have the chance to think/feel anything lol. We have still been super busy with activities here.  Also, as you may have seen from the FB pic I posted, I have contracted ringworm somehow. It’s very itchy and annoying and does not seem to be dissipating despite the antifungal creams. Likely, I’ll be spending 3 hours waiting at the hospital to get oral meds...

Day 70/85

Posted by on Aug 12, 2012 in Blog - Julie and Aaron from Boma Ng'ombe | 1 comment

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another installation of “what crazy #$%& have Julie and Aaron been up to THIS past week?!” Well, actually, not quite as much this time. Which has been nice considering how hard we’d been working for the better part of the summer. Julie and I’ve now reached the end of our tenth week, marking a meager two weeks remaining before heading home to TO. As far as going back, personally I’m a bit nervous that the twenty or so pounds I lost will be for naught, two weeks into being...

Day 64/85

Posted by on Aug 6, 2012 in Blog - Julie and Aaron from Boma Ng'ombe | Comments Off

Howdy blog followers! We are coming to a close of our summer adventures; only 3 weeks left…this makes me sad. This week we were able to pretty much wrap up everything for the water and sanitation project. It’s so nice to have that beast off our plates and it was a success as far as I am concerned. There is still so much to do and we are really starting to feel the pressure of time. We have so many projects to do but also, the girls have holidays from the school for the month of August so we want to spend time with them as well....
