New, Easier to Navigate Website
Amizade Global Service-Learning is thrilled to announce that we have revamped our website in an effort to make it easier for future volunteers and participants to navigate our site. Check it out at www.Amizade.org.
Our logo is also new! It was designed by Jason Cordova. We hope these changes will continue to inspire individuals and communities through worldwide service and learning.
Chonyonyo Water Tank Project Recognized
Amizade’s onging work on a large water tank and seed storage building at Chonyonyo—in Karagwe district, Tanzania—has been recognized and awarded a plaque by this year’s leader of the “Freedom Torch” rally, Dr. Nassoro Ally Matuzya. The annual “Freedom Torch” race involves a number of government-lead ceremonies that take place throughout Tanzania, which celebrate the good work of successful NGOs that are clearly serious about their commitment to developmental efforts. The torch symbolizes “freedom and light” and is meant to encourage NGOs to feel proud of their work, and to continue on.
There was a wonderful celebration to commemorate the tank, the event was broadcast on at least one radio station, and was attended by the district commissioner, and a very large group of supporters.
Amizade is proud to support a project that is being recognized at a national level!
