Anthropology class launches fundraiser for Tanzanian school
Wapi choo – that’s kiSwahili for “where’s the washroom?”
For children at the Moivaro Primary School in Tanzania, this question is not an academic one. Moivaro will be shut down unless the school can build new washrooms to replace the existing ones which are unclean and dangerous.
This would leave nearly 1,000 children without a school.
Since arriving in Tanzania in May, Community, Culture and Global Studies professor Sandra Peacock and students from the Go Global program have been working with The Vijiji Foundation on a fundraising campaign to help save Moivaro.
The goal is to raise $10,000, of which 100 per cent of the funds will go towards the Moivaro washrooms.
