Here are some great photos from the AIA team’s trip to Tanzania this past August! The trip was partially sponsored by United Students for Africa and Achieve in Africa traveled with volunteers from the sponsoring organization to Olasiti village and Ulolela village. Together, Achieve in Africa and the volunteers worked in the two villages to assist with the construction of the primary and secondary school buildings. Additionally, the group had the opportunity to meet with village leaders and provide cultural lessons to the local school children at the project sites.
