Joe and I have been here at the Arusha Centre since January and our time is coming to an end. We have both acquired many new skills and have definitely become part of the community at the Old Y. Many thanks to Gerald and Mike for inviting us in and being patient with our learning process. Joe achieved writing a winning grant proposal for Calgary Dollars, and I have organized and have been a part of many Open Streets events. We look forward to having a break but no doubt our time here will be a part of us and will aid us in our continual learning as social workers and activists in social change.
