Albin Mathias, Country Director, represented Powering Potential at the Hassan Maajar Trust  (HMT) Annual fundraising event in Dar es Salaam and posted the following blog. HMT was established by Ambassador Mwanaidi Maajar in memory of her son Hassan Shariff Maajar (Hashy) who died in a tragic road accident on November 11, 2006. 

The Hassan Maajar Trust Annual fundraising event on 31 Oct. 2014 was intended to raise TSH 500 million for 6,000 desks.

What a surprise! The Bunda District Executive Director was first person I met during fundraising event. Powering Potential is implementing the Educating-Through-Technology for Bunda District which has contributed TSH 10 million. This is a great achievement! Congratulations to Hon. Wasira and the Bunda District Council for your generosity to Bunda people.
