This month in Tanzania the honorary plaque to former Antioch Member Bob Diess was mounted on the wall of the Kilimahewa Educational Centre.  This plaque was purchased to recognize the amazing work Bob did to help secure a Rotary International Global Grant for the Kilimahewa Educational Centre.  This grant funded various educational opportunities for vulnerable teens in Tanzania to learn skills such as a computers skills, agro-business skills, and entrepreneurial skills. The global grant led to a strong partnership with Rotary and the development of an Interact club within Kilimahewa.  28 students helped from the 1st Interact club in memory of Bob and the amazing work he did to help the school.
