We're a charity working in Tanzania. Our aim is to eradicate poverty through education.

We work with mostly with the Maasai tribe who take their cattle to graze hundreds of kilometres from their homes. We're hoping to use the moblog technology to get important information to this disparate community.

Got an amazing welcome to moblog with our last post, so thought we'd share another of our photos...

This is Samweli - he's one of the kids who comes to our education centre in Tanzania. He's an AIDS orphan and lives with his three sisters in the clinic next door to the Centre. He's HIV positive himself, yet he's one of the smiliest kids you'll ever meet. Without being told, you would never know his background. He's a typical 8-yr old boy, cheeky yet shy and polite and he thrives on the activities at the Centre - the drama, the arts, the music, the lessons, the sports. He thrives like the other 2,000 or so people who come.

Please, we still need your vote to help us win £45k of funding to continue our work.

Cheers Maggie! Samweli is a real legend. He was desperately trying not to smile in this photo... but he just can't help it...

Samweli is a good looking young man. There's wonderful mischief in those eyes and that smile.
