  • Auburn Mountainview Students Help Support an African Village

    The Auburn Mountainview Lions have joined in with the Friends of the Tanzanian Orphans to help the Olasiti community in Arusha, Tanzania.  The Lions recently sent $1,500.00 to the orphanage to improve their living environment by putting in new floors, windows, and painting the walls.  Recently, another fundraiser was held, to continue in the support of the children in the Olasiti Village.

    The AMHS Friends of the Tanzanian Orphans Club (FOTO) held a unique fundraising event ~ BOWLS FOR AFRICA on Friday, January 18th in the Commons.  This fundraising event was to raise money for the Olasiti Village Orphans in Tanzania.

    At the event you could purchase a $15.00 ceramic bowl painted by AMHS students & fill it with the soup of your choice for free then take the bowl home to keep as a memento.  Soup was enjoyed by all, along with the colorful bowls painted to help support the cause.  The AMHS Friends of the Tanzanian Orphans are planning events throughout the year, and are working hard towards sending a group of students to work in the village in December.
