Testigo’s Tea Time fundraiser

November 27, 2011

La Chica and her new best friends Emmie and Alex hosted a women’s afternoon tea in Melbourne.  Attended by 30 women, the event was opened by Emmie, with cups of clean filtered water served to remind us of the privilege of having access to water when the Masai in Longido, Tanzania, have none.  La Chica showed her documentary and talked about her latest trip to Tanzania, and her Masai friend Judith shared a very touching and personal account of life as a Masai woman.  Liliane Grace talked about making dreams come true, and her book ‘The Mastery Club’.  The afternoon raised a whopping $3008 for Testigo Africa’s project in Longido.  The generosity and extraordinary compassion and empathy displayed on the afternoon touched La Chica deeply.

    Another water idea to consider. http://Www.rolexawards (2000 laureates) features the work of a man who invented a water bucket in the shape of a wheel that rolls along the ground. Makes the 10km walk a bit easier.
