I just want to give a brief explanation about what I am going to be doing for the next year. I am going to be a Young Adult Service Corp volunteer in Dodoma Tanzania. In Tanzania I will be working for the Carpenter’s Kids Program. CK provides school supplies, uniforms, and meals to children in need in the Diocese of Central Tanganyika. I am getting ready for my trip right now. I have been working hard on my fundraising and I have had tremendous help from friends and family, as well as from my home parish St. John’s of Pleasantville New York and throughout the diocese of New York. I would like to thank everybody for there support, without it this opportunity would not be possible. I would also like to thank everybody at YASC for their help in this process. I do not have a departure date yet, but hopefully my visa will go through soon and departure date can be set up. Again thank you and I look forward to keeping everybody posted on how everything is moving a long.
