Sub-team 3 was busily working away Friday when we got a call from our host in Morogoro, Veronica Mpazi. Veronica told us she wanted to stop by our hotel right away. We knew she had been in Dar es Salaam the day before so we figured she had information that might be vital to our heath care project.
Instead, Veronica was bearing gifts for us from Dar – and what incredible gifts they were! She had heard us say that we had wanted to have some African garments made to take home so she arranged – unbeknownst to us - to have these made at her dressmaker. Wow! We really made a splash with all the staff at the hotel. We might need instruction on how to properly wear the head scarf – but we were thrilled to have our hair tied up on a hot day. Such practical – and beautifully made – clothing. And we were overwhelmed, once again, by Veronica’s generosity. It only makes the team more determined to make progress on our project, both for the students of Morogoro and for future generations of learners.
