Covid -19 Response
The Coronavirus first hit Tanzania on March 16th and all schools were closed the following day including our own BEE Montessori Preschool and our Students Empowering Students program.
The majority of our Preschool and SES students come from the most vulnerable homes and they needed our support more than ever. ASFE provided our students' families and local artists with food, masks and soap so the get the nutritional support and hygiene they need to survive this Covid -19 Pandemic as well as school packets for our preschoolers and group chats with SES members so they could continue to learn and keep us informed of their health and safety.
All Tanzania schools reopened June 29th. Our SES programs restart on July 10th and BEE Montessori Preschool will be slowly opening July 20th.
Asante Sana to our Tanzania staff and teachers to all the hard work they continue to do to for our students!
"Asante Sana" is the Swahili translation of "Thank you very much."
