A Panther in Africa: The Legacy Continues Benefit Success!

In April Maya produced a benefit, A Panther in Africa:The Legacy Continues, to raise funds for children in a Tanzanian village outside of Arusha, nestled between Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, and refurbishment of a water tank that provides water to the entire surrounding Imbaseni Village of 500 families.  We are so pleased and humbled to report, the ‘capping’ of the big water tank at UAACC is completed!! 

Thank you so much to all who participated in the event and to those who donated.  This was a dream of many years finally come true.
