Jamie, 2009

In September 2009, I traveled to Moshi to volunteer with TAFCOM because I wanted the opportunity to serve the HIV/AIDS population. Nie and Jonas welcomed me with open arms and I immediately felt at ease in their company. The depth of my personal learning and growth went far beyond anything I ever expected. With each family I met and child I played with, my heart was filled with deeper gratitude and compassion. To participate in a different culture on this level is an experience I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I have visited Moshi two more times since my first visit and I continue to support their efforts from home. I am currently working on a webstore in which I will sell the items made by TAFCOM’s tailoring group.
