Barry and Chris Finlay from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2009 and have since raised enough money, in conjunction with Plan Canada, to provide access to clean water and classrooms for a community in Tanzania. They are now embarking on a project to help youth and women ages 15-24 in Tanzania to establish businesses. Read about their journey in their book, Kilimanjaro and Beyond. This Blog describes upcoming events and how you can help.
Today we purchased school books with the help of Plan Tanzania staff in Mwanza. We couldn't have done it without them. The books in the photo represent 290,000 Tanzanian shillings.
Thanks to Barrhaven United Church Vacation Bible School and Jan and Keith Campbell for their support.
