A colleague, with a long career in Tanzania’s public education system as a teacher and school inspector under his belt, visited a school in a rural district to check on whether the teachers were present at school and teaching in the classroom. When he walked into a Standard Two class, he found about 50 eight-year olds sitting there, unsupervised and untaught. They did not know where their teacher was. He went to investigate and the head teacher could not explain the teacher’s absence either.

A few minutes later, my colleague returned to the class, to find the children in fits of laughter. Their teacher, sporting shoeless, muddy feet and looking rather sheepish, had returned and was standing at the front of the classroom.

The CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation and 2014 Tutu Fellow, Sello Hatang, will once again be leading an expedition to trek Mount Kilimanjaro.  Popularly known as the Trek4Mandela, the group is scheduled to summit Kilimanjaro on July 18, in commemoration of Nelson Mandela’s birthday.

The sponsored trek to the summit of Africa's best-known peak - which rises more than 19,000 feet above sea level - is to raise funds for a sanitary pad campaign to keep girls in school.

Tanzanian politician and 2013 Tutu Fellow, January Makamba - since his appointment as Minister of Environment and Union in President John Magufuli’s cabinet - has led initiatives and missions committed to protecting the environment. Some of the key areas he currently addresses focus on protection of forests, implementing solutions for aquatic wildlife, and addressing the prospective water crisis. His point of view regarding the environment is very much in keeping with the saying: we’ve not inherited this planet from our fathers, we’ve borrowed it from our children.
