SHARE on The Nate Berkus Show

SHARE founder, Shannon McNamara, was a guest on The Nate Berkus Show in February 2011. Shannon was asked about her efforts with SHARE, a nonprofit organization with a mission to empower girls in Africa through education.



SHARE is featured on Star TV (East Africa) on the Habari News Program, Tanzania. This broadcast is mostly in Swahili, with some English. July 25, 2009.

Capps Centre

SHARE saw an important need at the Hekima Girls' Secondary School in Bukoba, Tanzania, and fulfilled that need by providing the 470 students with a new dining hall.

Pen Pal Program

For many years SHARE hosted a thriving Pen Pal Letter Program. (Please note that the SHARE Pen Pal Program has ended.) SHARE girls at the Kagema School in Tanzania initiated the program by writing 33 letters, in English, introducing themselves and their country to teenage SHARE volunteers in New Jersey. After that, there were numerous exchanges back and forth between the SHARE girls in Africa and the SHARE volunteers in North America. Approximately 70 teenagers participated in the program, which ended as the students graduated from high school.
