Prof. Othman’s Memorial Services is Saturday, 10:00AM, July 18,Nkrumah Hall, University of Dar es salaam


 Here at Mlimani family, we are very sad to announce the death of Professor Haroub Othman, who happened to be a Tahir’s father. Tahir is a formal Board member of MAO and one of the biggest supporters of development projects at Mlimani. MAO would like to send condolences and prayers to Tahir and the entire Othman family during this  very sad and difficult time

Professor Othman’s memorial (Kumbukumbu) will be this coming Saturday, on July 18, Nkrumah Hall at University of Dar-es-salaam

For those alumni who are in Tanzania, I know you will have a chance to go and see Tahir, and support him  and his family during this difficult time.  For those not in Tanzania, please reply with comments on this post, add prayer or encouraging message to Tahir and his family, and we will send it to them.

If you need any help to find directions to University of Dar es salaam or getting in touch with Tahir, please just send me an email or send an email to Emma, and will connect you.

May god rest his soul in peace.

Part I: Electricity Project ….Fantastic news

Ok, so Kim is in Tanzania, and as he promised, he followed up on Electricity Project with Tanzania Electric Supply Company!!.  Anyhow, after many dramatic turns, he was finally able to get the Mlimani File and pay for the electricity to be brought to the school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is huge for us!! People have worked so hard for this project, and it seemed like there is no light at the end of the tunnel!! We can probably write a book about our experience in this project. It has been really complex!!

 We really thank you Mr. Kim Martin. I mean this guy is one of the most generous and giving person! He has done so much for MAO and Mlimani Primary; and on behalf of everyone, thank you so much! Thank you for all alumni and friends of Mlimani, who has given money and time to help on this project!

 Now..don’t get too excited!! …I will  be posting part II of this story soon!!
