American Soccer Arusha, more than a football game. Written by Social Manager Tanzania.   (published in Tanzania)

June 24, 2011 by   Comments(0)

 

On May 21, in Arusha’s Sheikh Amri Abeid Memorial Stadium, the very site where the nation of Tanzania proudly raised its first national flag in 1961, college football teams from the USA and Mexico competed in front of 15,000 curious fans, as well as worldwide media television, photographers and writers. While noting the historical sporting element of this football game, the fact that it comes during Tanzania’s 50th Anniversary as an independent nation.

 

 The game had been previously scheduled for nearby Moshi, but on his just-completed trip to Tanzania, Global Football President Patrick Steenberge found that the vibrant city of Arusha, just 45 minutes from Kilimanjaro Airport, would be the ideal host for the 1st American football game on African soil.

“Arusha Stadium has good grass, a rich history, and is a much larger venue than in Moshi, and with the building interest worldwide about the Global Kilimanjaro and have been provide what the teams and event need. Arusha boasts numerous quality hotels, has an active and diverse international community, wonderful practice fields at the Tanzanian Game Trackers facilities, over one million residents, and is the tourism, political and business center of the Kilimanjaro Northern region of the country.

In this event Projects Arod  staff and Volunteers was there and was extremely excited to have Amercan Football came to Africa. It was much more than a football game.

Projects Abroad Tanzania paves my way to Support the need Community.   (published in Tanzania)

June 13, 2011 by   Comments(0)

Projects Abroad Tanzania did a great job of creating a welcoming experience to Tanzania. As I arrive to Tanzania everything was laid out perfectly. I would recommend Projects Abroad to everyone who may be new at travelling or who is worried about adapting to a differing way of life. Everything is very well laid out and organised with very helpful and organised friendly staff. My host family location was very convenient in regard to my placement.

After I finished with Projects Abroad, with my project at Cradle of Love baby home, I get interested to extend my stay in Tanzania and involved with the Maasai Community Project which was named "Nasaru". Anna Moinan is the director of the program.

School project in Tanzania which become worthwhile   (published in Tanzania)

June 6, 2011 by   Comments(0)

The idea of starting Maasai School becomes really felt worthwhile and useful. At the beginning it was difficult to start but as the days going on the project became very meaningful to the society and even the number of children increase day after day. They love the school and they love their teachers and even their performance improves.

The Project becomes a great opportunity for both the volunteers and the children. It is the most reasonable, because it is not about supporting structures that already exist and might work sub-optimally efficient, but about constructing a totally new possibility for children to learn.

Home Roasting Coffee is more Delicious!!!   (published in Tanzania)

June 1, 2011 by   Comments(1)

 

Small Scale Kilimanjaro coffee farmers are the original people of the mountainous region who are called Wachagga people and speak Bantu. They comprise Tanzania’s third largest ethnic group. The Wachagga live primarily on the eastern and southern slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro as well as Mount Meru and in the Moshi area. The fertile soils of the Kilimanjaro region as well as the sufficient rainfall and mild climate provide optimal conditions for the area’s many small coffee farms which are known as shambas where the coffee is typically inter-cropped with bananas.

The region’s organic premium farmers help to protect the fertility of the volcanic soils and also maintain shade trees. The coffee farmers are rewarded with higher profits as well as decreased health risks due to the elimination of intensive chemical farming.

The coffee harvest season in the Kilimanjaro region takes place from October to February. Most of the indigenous in Kilimanjaro use to prepare coffee for home  consumption.

Home roasting is the process of roasting small batches of green coffee beans for personal consumption. Roasting coffee in the home is something that has been practiced for centuries, and has included methods such as heating over fire coals and others roasting in cast iron pans. It was more common for at-home coffee drinkers to roast their coffee in their residence than it was to buy roasted coffee.

In Kilimanjaro home roasting faded in popularity with the rise of the commercial coffee roasting companies. In recent years home roasting of coffee has seen a revival. In some cases there is an economic advantage, but primarily it is a means to achieve finer control over the quality and characteristics of the finished product.

Pay visit to Tanzania and you will discover the difference!!!
