Wildebeests


An amazing postcard from Grace, who's a 12-year-old student girl from Tanzania. About a year ago I donated to www.heartsunity.org and after about 6 months I found this postcard in my mailbox. The amount of $10 is spent on a bag and school supplies. On the website you can read that Tanzania is the 5th poorest country in the world, where the average annual income is less than $400, which means that families of 7 or more have $1 a day to survive. Every little bit helps.


Tanzania is a country in Eastern Africa, bordered by Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, DR Congo, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique. The tallest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro, is located in Tanzania. Swahilli and English are official languages in Tanzania.


Wildebeests, also called gnus, are a genus of antelopes. Wildebeests inhabit the plains and open woodland South of Sahara.

  1. Nie mam jeszcze pocztówki z Tanzanii i w sumie nigdy nie szukałam nikogo do wymiany z tego państwa, ale widziałam że kilka osób ma kartkę stamtąd, więc może i mnie się uda :)
