Review for Edpowerment Inc, Ramsey, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After a short four years of activity in the Moshe district of Tanzania, EdPowerment has an impressive list of successes to its name. Its very first scholarship student, sponsored after being cut off from the limited local educational opportunities, will obtain his B.S. degree this autumn. Another will shortly be entering her first year of medical school. A third has just completed her first year of law studies. In addition to scholarships such as these, EdPowerment supports the Kilimahewa Educational Center, providing teachers, books, supplies, and one meal a day to the fifty or so teenage students who walk sometimes three miles each way to attend. Actively engaged not only with the school but with the local population, EdPowerment has funded a well to provide safe water to both, has hosted seminars to raise awareness of Aids/HIV and has created Autism Connects Tanzania (ACT) to educate families about the disability and to protect children who have it. On limited funding from donors such as me, it has done extraordinary work. With more, it will only do better. I urge you to donate, volunteer, help in any way you can.
