Global Activism: 'Worldview Education and Care' helping Tanzanians
Chicagoans Ann Avery, and her husband Robert, founded Worldview Education and Care after they witnessed the plight of young people in the Meru district of northern Tanzania. Among many services, the group helps Tanzanians by providing scholarships for child and adult education, including living expenses and medical care. They also run a girls' empowerment program to help struggling and single mothers attend school. For our Global Activism series, Ann and group supporter, Susie Rheault, talk about their work and a program to foster HIV/AIDS awareness through sports.
