Archived Blog

EdPowerment’s blog shared key insights into our three programs - KIWOCE Community School, Tomorrow’s Scholar-Leader Sponsorships, and Connects Autism Tanzania – as these educational initiatives grew from 2013 through 2016.  While time constraints made it difficult to continue a consistent blog after 2016, these stories still reveal many of the human and strategic elements of what we do and why we took on this mission in Tanzania. We hope you enjoy getting to know our students and our work better through these stories.
