Here We Go!

Here We Go!

Charlene Reiter is my companion for One Small Drop’s 7th trip to the Livingstone Mountains in Southwest Tanzania.

We are excited to bring start up funds for the sustainable projects identified by 3 new communities last year. The projects will empower women in Isange, Mwakaleili and Mbafwa. Each of the women’s groups have chosen to start with the potato project . (See more info on the potato project under the project tab.) In addition, Mbafwa will also start a chicken project.
The addition of these 3 women groups makes a total of 7 communities One Small Drop has a relationship with. There are 10 communities in the district and we plan on starting conversations with the 3 remaining communities on this trip.
We are also trying a new transportation method. I have always said that the travel is the hardest part of the trip: 23 hours of air time, then 13 hour bus ride, then a two hour 4-wheel drive, toss & turn trek (literally) into the mountains. Ohhhh my body is tired just thinking about it!
The 13 hour bus ride is being replaced by a 2 hour propeller plane ride to a newly opened airport in Mbeya, leaving us with a couple hour bus ride before heading into the mountains. I can’t begin to explain the luxury change this will bring!!!
Stayed tuned for this year’s stories and miracles over the next 2 weeks!
