Buhangija improvements

We would like to thank the Springfield Southeast Rotary Club (Springfield MO) for their generous gift of $5000 to the Buhangija School for the Visually Impaired in Shinyanga Tanzania. There are about 250 Albino Children (CWA-Children with Albinism) who live at the school.
Tim and I visit the school often when we are there but have been in the states for furlough since April. However, Tim made a trip to Tanzania in August to host a building team of 32 people.  While he was there, he presented the money to the school so they could build some toilets and shower facilites for the children.  The children have all been sharing 2 outside toilets and have had no shower facilites at all.  They wash using buckets standing around outside with the older children going behind some of the buildings to bathe. 
We just received pictures today from the school Headmaster, Mr Ajali, showing that the toilets and showers have been completed.  They children are excited about their new facilities; it will be very helpful in relieving the problems related to the severe over-crowding at the school.
