    Tatizo la kwetu ni bado kuwa na dhana tengemezi na kushindwa kujisaidia wenyewe. Kwa maoni yangu ndio sababu tutaendelea kuwa maskini pamoja na rasimali nyingi tulizonazo. Nchi kama South Korea, Malaysia n.k. zilikuwa na uchumi sawa na nchi zetu za kiafrika miaka ya sitini. Walichofanya wao ni kujifunga mkanda na kufanya kazi kwa bidii (sio kwa kusaidiwa na wazungu) ndio maana sasa hizi nchi sasa zina uchumi mkubwa sana. Hii habari hapa chini ndio ninayoichangia. Umaskini wetu lakini mpaka tusaidiwe na wazungu, hata kujenga ukuta!

    US politician from State of Oregon Jackie Winters has pledged to sponsor 36 homeless children at Mirerani in Simanjiro District, Manyara region, to attend school.
    The American politician made the pledge here recently when she visited the area, which is popular for Tanzanite mining.
    Winters, who currently serves as the Senator representing the Salem District, has also promised to buy a refrigerator and build a wall fence around the ‘Rafiki Child Care’ orphanage in Mererani.
    The 74-year-old politician visited the poverty-stricken Moipo Division of Simanjiro where she supports a number of community projects, including the orphanage in the Mirerani hills.
    During her four-day tour, Winters was accompanied by a number of students from the Oregon State University.
    Earlier, coordinator of the orphanage, Karosi Issaya, said the centre’s main source of income was rearing and selling chicken raised on the compound and sold to Arusha traders.
    He said the fact that the business was slow, it didn’t earn them adequate money to pay for the children’s fees.
    “The poultry business was started with the assistance from Vodacom Tanzania,” said the orphanage coordinator.
    The recent trip to Mirerani was the second for Winters. She made her first trip in 2008 during which she funded the construction of a deep well producing 16,000 litres of water per hour for the children and surrounding communities.
