Fundraising success! OPP assisted the Dageno Girls Center in Tanzania in gaining more than $20,000 for the school's expansion. Thank you to all who helped raise money, donated their time, products and services to make this generous donation. We look forward to sharing the Center's success stories. (December 2015)
We just learned that OPP was the largest sponsor of the Dageno Girls Center in Tanzania this past year - which means they are struggling because we didn't give them that much. Their power and internet have been shut down because of the Tanzanian election but they are carrying on with their education anyway. We're trying to help them get solar power and a way to catch/store rain water for bathing. OPP set up a "Go Fund Me" account. We will match dollar-for-dollar all donations and every penny will go to the girls. For less than $600 per year, you can feed, house, clothes, educate and provide medical care for a 12-16 year old Tanzanian girl. Please help if you can. (November 2015)
