Weekly Awesome Tanzania: World Malaria Day in the Southern Highlands
World Malaria Day on April 25th, 2012 was celebrated by Peace Corps Volunteers and Tanzanians across the country. While many PCVs organized noteworthy events to commemorate the day, this Weekly Awesome is devoted to the work of three extraordinary volunteers from the Mbeya and Njombe (formerly the southern half of Iringa) Regions in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. These volunteers represent all sectors of Peace Corps in Tanzania (health, environment and education) and work in various settings. They adopted their interventions based on their knowledge and skills to best address the needs of their community.
