Tanzanian children learn early on to help in the home.
ADEA Director: Douglas McFalls
Douglas made his first trip to Tanzania in 1999. What was meant to be a one-time visit has turned into an ongoing relationship with East Africa resulting in the establishment of the AfriMak artisan cooperative, the Maasai Boma School primary school, the MaKuYa Traditional Performing Arts Festival and the MaKuYa Cultural Museum and Learning Center. Since 1999 there are countless stories that can be told and shared, so Douglas is taking advantage of blog technology to invite readers into his experiences (and those of others contributors) through these “Very Very Short Stories from Africa”. Though Douglas is happy to share his stories – the primary intent of these blogs is to invite supporters to donate to keep this programming going and growing. Please keep that in mind as you read. Thank you for your interest – Asante – Ashe Oleng. Douglas
