The history of the Karimu Foundation’s involvement with the Ufani School begins with a July 2007 visit to Tanzania by Don Stoll and his wife Marianne Kent-Stoll, high-school teachers in Santa Cruz, California. Within minutes of stumbling across the Ufani School, they knew they had a job to do. They carried only enough money with them to pay for the cement and the labor of local construction workers needed to finish a privacy shelter for a new set of squat-hole toilets for the students. But Don and Marianne promised the teachers and the villagers they would raise more money in California. Through continued volunteer hours and support of various community involvements, the Ufani School will benefit for years to come.
