  • Description

    A GOODWILL MISSION FROM FINLAND, COMPRISED OF A YOUTH DELEGATION, A UNESCO PARTY, AN ART STUDY GROUP, A CHURCH MISSION, A PRESS CONTINGENT AND A FAMILY VISITORS GROUP -- 84 PERSONS IN ALL -- ARRIVED ON FRIDAY (29 NOVEMBER) AT THE RUVU NATIONAL SERVICE CAMP. THIS VISIT IS PART OF A THREE-WEEK TOUR OF TANZANIA, DURING WHICH THE FINNISH YOUTH LEADERS HOPE TO ESTABLISH CLOSER CONTACTS BETWEEN THEIR COUNTRY AND THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF TANZANIA.

    WHILE IN TANZANIA, THE FINNISH GROUP VISITED A NUMBER OF PROJECTS IN DAR ES SALAAM, INCLUDING THE NORDIC TANGANYIKA PROJECT AT KIBAHA, KIVUKONI COLLEGE AND LOCAL MUSEUMS. TO ENABLE THEM TO COVER THE MAXIMUM OF UP-COUNTRY TERRITORIES, THE GROUP WILL SPLIT UP INTO THREE SUB-GROUPS EACH TO VISIT DIFFERENT AREAS: 1) SAME, MOSHI AND ARUSHA DISTRICTS; 2) MOROGORO, IRINGA AND MBEYA DISTRICTS; AND 3) DOMOMA, MWANZA AND MUSOMA DISTRICTS.

    IN THEIR TRAVELS, THEY WILL STUDY TANZANIA'S FIGHT AGAINST ILLITERACY TO ENABLE THEM TO ORGANISE EFFECTIVE VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS, AND THEY WILL MEET WITH OFFICIALS OF THE TANZANIA NATIONAL TRUST FUND ON MATTERS RELATING TO THE ADULT EDUCATION FUND RAISING PROGRAMMES. BOTH THESE ACTIVITIES ARE IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE WORLD LITERACY CAMPAIGN. WHEREVER POSSIBLE, THE FINNS WILL ALSO JOIN IN LOCAL PROGRAMMES OF NATIONAL SERVICE YOUTH.
