Global Activism: Mailisita foundation teaching kids in Tanzania

It’s Thursday and time for our Global Activism segment. Each Thursday, we hear about someone who’s decided to make the world a better place.

In 2010, Terry Mulligan taught in the Mailisita community in Moshi, Tanzania. Many Mailisita children are orphaned from AIDS, malaria or other illnesses. Many more live in extreme poverty. After two years back home teaching first grade in Libertyville, Terry is headed back to Mailisita for two years to teach English and develop a technology curriculum.

Worldview talks with Terry and Stan Taylor, treasurer & founding board member at the Mailisita Foundation, about their effort to create a financially self-sufficient educational center for AIDS orphans in Tanzania.
