We have recently begun some new projects in Tahoua, a city a bit north of where we have built and partnered in the past. Between meetings and school visits, Kara and Char had some time to explore. Check out these fun photos!

“Meeting the Tahoua Sarki (Hausa King) Yup – Kara even got her own thrown!” – Char (Hausa is the tribe most prominent in Niger. Most of our students are of the Hausa tribe.)
