    Although AIDS Ride South Africa (ARSA) did not officially form as an organization until October 2008, its story began back in early 2005 when I was a doctoral student. I had been working on a moribund dissertation on the rhetoric of reconciliation non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in South Africa 11 years after the demise of apartheid. The South African ten-year anniversary moments of rainbow-ism = reconciliation of 2004 had come and gone, and …

    On a weekend excursion, our group visited the Isimila Stone Age Site. Discovered by archeologists in 1951, this site, once the site of a lake, and now a lake bed, held remnants of times long, long ago. On this continent, home of the first ancient humans, there can be no better place to find artifacts that demonstrate the ingenuity of early man. There is a museum on the premise that …

    On Sunday, 11 American students and 5 of our Tanzanian roommates were treated to a Tanzanina cooking lesson. We were divided up into 4 groups, each with the responsibility of preparing one or two dishes for the feast. Some of the dishes that were to be cooked were potatoes, peas, meat, ugali, rice, spinach, and chapati. Some interesting tools were also a part of the equation. Of particular interest was …

    Here, in Tanzania, the disadvantaged far outnumber the advantaged. One such group is the children who, through no fault of their own have no adults to care for them and provide for their basic needs. Several of my study abroad cohorts have been volunteering at the Upendo Center in Iringa, a refuge to over 100 children and youth. These children seem to be left to their own devices much of …

    Last Saturday, our CIEE Tanzanian study abroad group went on an excursion to a rural village to experience the craft of basket weaving and to meet a group of women who earn a small income by way of their craft. The regions of Tanzania are vast and so it takes a bit of time to venture to other villages. The distances, along with the conditions of the roads, adds to …
