Habari za leo!? What’s the news of the day!?

Today marked day five in Tanzania and our third day in Iringa. The day presented many opportunities to have fun while also learning much about the culture of the region.
Today marked day five in Tanzania and our third day in Iringa. The day presented many opportunities to have fun while also learning much about the culture of the region. To begin the day, we met with General Secretary Chavala, a leader in the Tanzanian organization partnered with the St. Paul Synod. He took time to explain to us the importance of the partnership and the vital work being done in the region due to it. He emphasized the three goals of the partnership: prayer, visitation, and programs.


This study abroad experience fulfills the latter two goals. Through the visitation of groups such as ours to the Iringa region, a better relationship is developed. Chavala also emphasized the importance of creating community ownership of the projects that we design. He suggested that this could be done through early involvement of the communities in the planning stages of the project. After our orientation we experienced a two-hour crash course in Swahili. Mwalimu Fatuma (Teacher Fatuma) taught us basic greetings, how to introduce ourselves, and verbs that will be helpful in our daily interactions in Tanzania. A favorite phrase of the group was when the mwalimu would ask us “Hamjambo?” (How are you all?) and we would all respond with an exuberant “Hatujambo!”


After a brief coding session in preparation for our upcoming design work, we had free time to explore Iringa. Armed with our newfound Swahili skills we explored the various markets including the produce and Maasai markets. Some students also explored a local history and culture museum for the Iringa region. For dinner we visited Mama Iringa’s where we were treated to authentic pizza with local ingredients. We gave a toast to our new friendships and good luck on the rest of the trip.

  2. the watch is still fairly legible at a glance. Running along watches replicas the periphery of the watch is an hour and minute track, Replica Hublot and the watch’s Breguet-style hands are consistent with previous Vingt-8 iterations.Tag Heuer Replica On the watch’s caseback, Voutilainen has shifted expectations once again due to the presence of a running seconds display and a power reserve indicator that shows off the model’s 65 hours of running autonomy. https://www.scoop.it/u/jenny-rothwell This arrangement is, again, entirely new for Voutilainen; for collectors, it offers some additional hidden functionality while letting the core timekeeping functions remain in focus on the dial side.
