KYGN – At a glance Facts and Stats

KYGN – At a glance Facts and Stats

So I’m well in to blogging the story of our involvement with the KYGN School in Tanzania, and as I write this the date of our departure is a mere three weeks away. Exciting!

I’ve covered in no small detail all aspects of our preparation for the trip, and have discussed KYGN too. But I thought it would be handy to give a bit more information about KYGN and the rationale behind what they do in an easily digestible format, and so here are some at a glance facts and stats about this remarkable school we are building a library for this summer…

    Great work that you are involved with! I lived in Namibia for a year and taught at a school there. Building up the library was one of my biggest projects (though I didn’t actually BUILD the library…just brought in more books).

    Keep up the great work!

    I am super impressed. I did consider this type of “holiday” for a while. But chickened out. thought I would lose my job if I took the time off. You are doing a great thing! Good luck building the library

      Thank you very much Katharina πŸ™‚ I’m lucky because I work in a school so can go during school holidays for lengthier periods of time. Hopefully one day you’ll get the chance, but totally understand that it isn’t easy…
