What’s Happening


2017 Calendar of Events

 

 

June

We will be returning to Tanzania to establish the first free dental clinic in the village of Kibosho-Umbwe. Dentists from UCONN Dental will be traveling with our team to provide free dental care to hundreds of villagers.

Visit our website and Facebook page to follow our trip.

 

The dental clinic is ready for our arrival.

In Amsterdam, our team completes the first leg of the journey to Africa.

Day 4 in Tanzania finds our dentists successfully treating a steady flow of patients. The gift of a toothbrush makes them as happy as if it were their birthday!


While the dentists work, just up the road toward the elusive Mount Kili (the locals say she is shy) is a sewing center. Artists for World Peace is working with a small group of of women instructing them on the art of quilting to provide them with the chance to make a sustainable living. “AFWP Peace Quilters” will sell their creations online.
