This personal narrative is an informative and humorous handbook for anyone interested in volunteering to a third world country in Africa, especially Tanzania
"I volunteered with the intent of giving something of myself but found that I received far more than I gave. The Tanzanian people are courteous, friendly, respectful, and despite their dire poverty, share whatever they have...I was left feeling that we Americans are glutted with riches but have poverty of the soul."
excerpt from "Volunteer to Empower"
"This is the Africa of legend, the quintessential snapshot of the contenent, where hot dusty afternoons end abruptly in glorious blazes of sunset, and velvet-black star-gilled skies enfold the plains."
