International day of Tolerance, November 16th, will shine a light on mutual understanding among cultures and people. In addition this highlights the importance of religion and differing beliefs in a community and all over the world. To look at these ideas and beliefs we have been around the rural village of Ulaya Kabaoni to ask the community about their view on the matter. Interviewing a range of people and also Raleigh volunteers, we asked about religion and the acceptance of differing views of religion.November 16, 2017

What comes to your mind when you think about World Cities Day? Big world-renowned cities such as London, New York or Dar Es Salaam? Did you know that this day doesn’t just relate to these big cities? It also includes villages and rural communities, such as our village of Kiponzelo. For those of you who haven’t yet stumbled across World Cities Day, is it is a day created by the United Nations (UN) that takes place on the 31st October every year. It was developed to achieve the eleventh UN Sustainable Development Goal of creating sustainable cities and communities. The UN hopes to achieve their goals through aiming to give people better and equal access to services, and promoting equality amongst different social groups.November 4, 2017

In celebration of World Teacher’s Day on October 5th, a day dedicated to recognising the role teachers play in providing quality education at all levels, we had the opportunity to interview several teachers at Msunjilile primary school to find out about the impact of the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) project so far and their expectations for the future. As the second Raleigh cycle here at Msunjilile, we wanted to get teachers’ perspectives about the impact of Raleigh projects including the school sanitation and hygiene lessons, toilet block constructions and menstrual hygiene management (MHM) room for the female students.October 30, 2017
