Powering Potential celebrates 10-year partnership with the Segal Family Foundation

The close, long-time relationship has been a key factor in the progress Powering Potential has made in bringing their “Educating through Technology” programs to rural students in Tanzania.

Powering Potential Inc. (PPI) is currently preparing for their annual fundraising event, scheduled for Wednesday, June 5, 2019, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at NoMad Studio, located on 29 W. 39th Street, 10th Fl in NYC.

They will be celebrating their 10-year partnership with the Segal Family Foundation. Their close, long-time relationship has been a key factor in the amazing progress PPI has made in bringing their “Educating through Technology” programs to rural students in Tanzania.

Proceeds from this year’s event will go towards the Sazira Secondary School SPARC+ Lab upgrade impacting 800+ students in rural Tanzania. The budget is $23,500, and Powering Potential is excited to report that The Collegiate Churches of New York recently awarded a $13,000 grant towards this goal.

PPI has an incredible event planned for guests. Back by popular demand, Tanzanian dancers performing traditional dance led by Justa Lujwangana, CEO and founder of Curious on Tanzania, will be the entertainment for the evening.

The buffet will also feature authentic Tanzanian dishes based on menus from Taste of Tanzania by Miriam Malaquais. The author has donated twenty of her books for sale at the event, with proceeds going to PPI.

Along with wine and soft drinks, a classic Tanzanian cocktail will be available to guests for a donation. The Dawa is a mixture of vodka, lime juice, and honey. The word “dawa” is Swahili for medicine.

This year's event will also feature a silent auction with a variety of exciting items and services up for bidding. Admission is $70 for early bird admission; regular admission is $90 at the door.

Visit Poweringpotential.org to donate and reserve your space at this event.

Asante sana (thank you)!
