We want to thank everyone who has sent a letter to our students in Tanzania. Letters are usually hand delivered to your students by OBA staff, but this year we are not able to enter Africa due to travel restrictions. COVID-19 has made it very difficult to send letters internationally, but we did successfully send the letters sent to us throughout the year.
If you have communication to send to your student and would like it delivered right away, feel free to email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make sure to send your message to the headmaster of your student’s school, and email you their reply!
Wishing health and blessings on all of you.
-The OBA Team
Operation Bootstrap Africa wishes you a Happy Independence Day! In Tanzania, this public holiday is always celebrated on December 9th. It celebrates the end of British rule in Tanganyika in 1961. It is Tanzania’s National Day, a day when the Tanzanian people mark their independence with speeches, parades and flags.
