Malaria survey

Malaria kills 780,000 people per year, most of them African children. Peace Corps’ new Stomping Out Malaria in Africa initiative is supporting Volunteer efforts to make a meaningful impact in reducing malaria. Baseline Survey data from all Peace Corps Volunteers in Africa will allow the initiative to target its resources and provide the best possible support to all 3,000 Africa Region volunteers in all sectors engaged in important malaria prevention work.


Miaka Hamsini kwa Uhuru!

We are all happy that this year is the 50th anniversary of Peace Corps, and in addition to that, yesterday Tanzania celebrated the 50th anniversary of their independence.   I went to my favorite bar, had my hand kissed by a drunk man and played on the swing set and swively chair thingie with some children.  What did you do?   


50 Years Later

Tom Katus visited a group of education volunteers in Morogoro, almost 50 years to the week after he was posted to Morogoro as one of the very first Peace Corps volunteers in Tanzania.  His group, known as Tanganyika one, served the then-country of Tanganyika in response to the request of president Nyerere, the first African head of state to request the presence of Peace Corps.  To make this even more historic, Tanganyika 1 included Jerry Parsons, the first African-American volunteer, who partnered with Mr. Katus in a duo affectionately dubbed "Tom and Jerry."


Using the offline Wikipedia

At the Education IST, I provided copies of Wikipedias that work without an Internet connection. But I didn't have time to write up or explain how to use it. So here is what to do with the files:
