Tanzanian girls for SHARE in Africa and girls' education

Thanks to the Somerset Hills YMCA in Basking Ridge, New Jersey for inviting SHARE to participate in their summer teen volunteer program.  The teens wrote encouraging letters to the students at the Hekima Girls' Secondary School.  The Hekima girls wrote back long, heartfelt letters to their American counterparts. What a great way to promote cultural exchange!

Thanks to the Watchung-Warren Rotary Club in New Jersey for supporting SHARE for the last two years!

Cheers to Kanya Shah and C.R.A.F.T. for their continued support! C.R.A.F.T. (Change Reaches All Friends Today) is a group of New Jersey high school students who create and sell handmade goods and donate the proceeds to charity. These teens' efforts over the years have yielded $725 to support SHARE programs in Africa!
