Titration of Asperin

Ok so we need to work on communication.  Workshop IV for teachers was very poorly attended.  The dates of term, exams and breaks vary for all schools and no one seems to know when they are until the day of.  At least that is my impression.  A few teachers could not attend due to exam supervision and many others apparently did not get the message and/or did not reply.  I can only contact them through cell phone/ text message.  A representative had volunteered from each school to pass on messages to all the teachers.  This is obviously not working so we’ll work on that for next term.

Sabrina, Biology Teacher

 Those who did attend got right in there with titration labs and further DNA extraction.  We are still having very little success with the DNA.  We met Sabrina who is a volunteer teacher or student teacher from Germany.  She is very good and will be very helpful in facilitating the communication at least with Moshi SS.

  1. This is really incredible work you’re doing, I wish I had the skills and opportunity to do the same. Perhaps some day I will.

  2. I just browsed through your posts and I have to say I’m impressed and a bit envious. I don’t know that I could handle what your’e doing, but I can’t imagine the experiences you are having day to day. Thank you for helping your fellow humans.

  3. Keep up the good work, it is people like you who make this world a better place.

  4. Ran into your blog while redditing and saw all the great work you are doing. Keep it up!

  5. I find the work you are doing incredible! Please, keep it up and stay hopeful. You are making a difference.

  9. My friend is going to Tanzania this summer and I am very jealous! I love all of the pictures and descriptions, you are truly an amazing person! Keep up the good work!!!!

  10. Keep up the great work!

  11. Amazing stuff you are doing! Keep up the good work and never look back. The little things really count, one of those people you got CPR training might save a life one day. Hopefully you helping these teachers can then inspire them to inspire their students. I wish you the best!

  12. Good work. Keep it up.

  13. I love what you’re doing and I have some brainstorm style suggestions. Throw them out if they’re crap:

    It sounds like technology is not your friend in this place, so try to go old-school. Raise a bright, tall flag to signal school’s in session or hire a kid with a scooter to physically visit all of the students/ teachers to remind them.

    Even if interest is low, keep up your efforts! Even if you only teach one person that is a big help. Who knows what that one person will accomplish, if they’re anything like yourself they’ll do a lot!

  14. directed here by some credible people. Truly great, inspiring work. Few people are able to use so much of themselves in an endeavor such as this. So many think that giving the gift of money or food is enough, but your gift of knowledge and time will undoubtedly prove more beneficial in the long run. Assistance comes in many forms, and I believe that your efforts are testament to all that can be done right.Bravo, good work and please keep us updated.

  15. Much respect for what you are doing.

  16. Tanzania is a great place. Kenya tends to hog all the attention. Good job you for making a difference in such a great country! Keep it up!

  17. Sounds like a huge challenge, I hope things get easier. Keep us updated.

  18. Hellllll-o Sabrina

  19. From one HS teacher to another: you are AMAZING! I haven’t had a chance to read the whole story, but I’m very impressed by your dedication. Keep up the great work, and try not to get discouraged.

  20. Ubuntu: I am a person through other people, my humanity is tied to yours. Right on.

  21. Hi,

    Great work. If you have the capability to link a video, please do. I’m sure a lot of us would like to learn and grow with y’all.

    Once again, great work!

  22. This is awesome work! Keep on teaching!

  23. Would love a video. This is some pretty inspirational work you’re doing here. You should be proud of yourself.

    • Good Question. I think the mud hardens like brick and then doesn’t lose it’s structure again. Also having a roof prevents total soaking of the mud. Some houses are made of a stick structure with mud packed on top of the sticks. Others are made of actual bricks made of the clay mud. I also see along the highway bricks made of concrete.
      Thanks for your interest.

  24. Thanks for doing good in such a far away place! It takes a lot of courage!

  25. Wow, it takes serious guts to do this. Don’t ever get discouraged, you’re doing a great thing!
