Introducing myself and my journal: A Dream Becomes Real

Jo Marchant
Posted September 7, 2009 from Canada

About Me: I am a 60 year old woman from Canada who is fortunate to have so many young, idealistic girls and women in Tanzania who are my friends. This is the result of a chance trip I made to Tanzania to go on safari in 1998. I thought it was a "once in a lifetime trip" but seeds were planted and I was continually drawn to return to two small villages in the north - Longido and Kimokouwa. So many girls asking for educational sponsorship and women requesting micro-finance loans resulted in my co-founding an NGO named Project TEMBO in 2004. My life has never been richer or held such meaning.

My Passions: Photography, writing.

My Challenges: There is not enough time in a day to accomplish my goals.

My Vision for the Future: To have a sustainable project for girls and women in rural Northern Tanzania

My Areas of Expertise: I am creative, I love challenges, I love to inspire others to dream about possibilities and find ways to realize them.
