Africare Donors Trek Across East and Southern Africa
March 21 - April 6, 2008-- Africare led a group of 10 major donors to East and Southern Africa in Spring 2008. The two-week trip included stops in South Africa, Uganda and Tanzania to look at some of Africare’s development projects in Agriculture, Water, and Health & HIV/AIDS. In addition, the group had a chance to see some of Africa's most treasured destinations, including visits to Ngorongoro Crater and the Cape of Good Hope.
