Each Thursday we hear about an individual who's decided to work to make the world a better place.

Kurt Thurmaier is the founder of Tanzania Development Support.  The organization works on community development projects in Tanzania, often partnering and collaborating with local NGO's.  Currently they're helping to build a girl's dormitory near the town of Musoma. The dorm will make it possible for young girls in the region to get a highschool education.
