E-Newsletter August 2011

While every project funded by Grand Circle Foundation is dear to our hearts, we have a special fondness for the Next Generation Leaders program, which came to a close earlier this month. To watch these young people learn and grow so much in such a short time is always incredibly inspiring—and saying goodbye as they go off to college reminds us of the hopes and fears we experienced with our own children years ago. We wish our young leaders the very best of luck in this exciting phase in their lives.

The dire needs here coupled with the strong leadership of the school principal made Tarangire a perfect candidate for Foundation support.
