About This Activity

"Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world." –Nelson Mandela

WorldTeach is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded by a group of Harvard students in 1986 in response to the need for educational assistance in developing countries. It also addressed a growing interest among people in the U.S. and elsewhere to serve, teach and learn as volunteers overseas. Since its inception, WorldTeach has placed thousands of volunteer educators in communities throughout Asia, Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe and the Pacific.

Come join us as we celebrate an opportunity to spread education in Tanzania, Africa. Many of the schools in rural Tanzania have limited access to basic school materials. There is no internet, and often times no copy machine or printer for the teachers to use if needed to print course work for students. The families have limited income and often times cannot afford purchasing supplies for their kids to do school projects. Education, however, is a priority in Tanzania and is highly valued.

What better way to combine running, service, and Bollywood than to participate in a Bollywood 5k fun run/walk to benefit students in Tanzania?
