At the end of June 2011 I returned to Tabora to work on another Carina Water Project. Kitete School was selected by my colleague Christopher Nyamwanji Chairman of Sudeso (Sustainable Development Solutions). Coincidentally the area has sentimental value to me! It is located across the road & a roundabout from a former German fort which is now the barracks for an army battalion of the Tanzania army. I used to play squash there with John H. Owen the father of my children Carina who was born in Tabora, & Adrian who was born in Somerset UK.
For the duration of the project (6 weeks) I stayed at the Wilca Hotel owned by William & Cate Camara. It was only a couple of miles away from Kitete School so I walked to the site every day. I spent about 3 hrs daily taking video of each stage of the building of the tank which is depicted in the video.

2/7/2011: I’m already preparing for project#3 but so far $1,500.00 has been donated. I’ve sent a dvd of the film to Moffatt Productions Honolulu hoping that Uncle Tom will be inspired to hold a benefit concert! Also working on some ideas locally. I need all the help I can get, any suggestions are welcomed! To be continued..
