Dr. Kebwe was recently appointed Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Health and Social Services with a new office at the Ministry of Health in Dar es Salaam.
REA (Tanzania Rural Energy Agency) and TZ Postal Bank have already contributed funds for this program in the Serengeti, Serena hotels has pledged additional funds, and the IEEE Foundation (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) has awarded Powering Potential a grant, part of which will be used for this implementation.
Dr. Kebwe agreed in this Memorandum of Understanding to transfer the pledged funds by February 15 so that we can begin project implementation soon. He has allocated TZS 10 million (US$6,000) for this project.
