Updates from Wes alums working with Maji Safi Group in Tanzania

Wesleyan students and alumni working with Maji Safi Group in TanzaniaWe talk a lot on this blog about the work being done by Maji Safi Group, a disease prevention and health promotion project founded by Max Perel-Slater ’11 that empowers communities in rural Tanzania to fight waterborne and water-related diseases.  Maji Safi involves many students and alumni in its work (side note: we recently learned that Peter Simpson ’70 works for World Learning, which awarded MSG a $10k grant in June), and the organization continues to grow and provide new opportunities to become involved.

For the latest from Tanzania, read this post about “The Power of Dance” by 2013 PCSE seed grant recipient Faye Phillips ’13 and this post about “A Day in the Life of a Water-Porter” by Otis Poissan ’11, and follow the Maji Safi blog at http://majisafigroup.wordpress.com/.
