HOPE for Tanzania

Published: Tuesday 18 February 2014

About 40 CEFPI and friends gathered at the Olive Tree Cafe at Thebarton on Sunday 16 February 2014 to learn about the HOPE project in Tanzania. The purpose was to inform us about the project and to raise funds for the Trade Training Centre at Matipwili where a number of CEFPI members have been part of a community based project to plan and provide places for learning, including classrooms, library, community centre and a trades training centre.

The organisers, Chloe Summers, Anna Frozelas (Flightpath Architects) and Tracey Roughana (Brown Falconer) made a Skype link to Bill Cordner (Scotch College Perth) and Phil Idle (EIW, Perth) to discuss the project and its progress through a thorough community consultation and participation process.

The event raised a significant sum to contribute to the project and engendered interest in the process and its outcomes.

Thank you Chloe, Anna and Tracey and all who attended or donated generously.
