What a successful event we celebrated on Friday, April 20, 2018 at our school campus. The community event took place for the benefit of two initiatives, Bakhita Girls and the Two Wings Primary School in Tanzania, which we have been supporting for several years now.
More than 200 guests came around and felt the African spirit! Listened to African music and stories, watched students and staff performing, tasted delicious African food and bid on auction items. One highlight was the performance of our Grade 4 students with the drummer Eduardo Mota and the DIStortions with their new singer.
Overall we raised 1,300 Euro for the benefit of the two projects.
Bakhita Girls, founded by former DIS student Patricia Schneidewind, is supporting young women’s education in Ifakara and is now planning to build a community center for total 20,000 Euro. In the meantime the initiative has become a project of the Dresden organization Akifra e.V. and is now able to reach more people.

TWO WINGS PRIMARY SCHOOL
The Two Wings School provides primary education in English to financially deprived families in Iringa, Tanzania. Our fundraising project has been initiated by our Spanish teacher Mrs Uhia, who worked in Iringa and knows the school director personally. Currently, DIS supports the school with educational materials and funds for the buildings.
The 4th collection was successful. All six boxes filled with school supplies arrived at the school in March 2018. The students unpacked the boxes and were very happy about the support.
The Primary students at Two Wings are very grateful and are looking forward to receiving you donations!
