  • Description

    JAPANESE PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEERS, WHO ARRIVED IN DAR ES SALAAM EARLY THIS MONTH, ARE NOW TEACHING TANZANIAN WOMEN THE INTRICATIES OF SEWING. IN ALL, THERE ARE 24 DRESS-MAKING EXPERTS AND SIX MALE HORTICULTURISTS IN THE GROUP WHICH WILL STAY IN TANZANIA FOR TWO YEARS.

    THE PEACE CROPS GROUP WAS SCHEDULED IN TANZANIA LAST DECEMBER AT THE REQUEST OF THE TANZANIAN GOVERNMENT AND WERE TO HAVE BEEN ATTACHED TO THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION TEACHING IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS.

    BUT THEIR TRIP WAS CALLED OFF BY TANZANIA BECAUSE OF A NEW GOVERNMENT POLICY NOT TO EMPLOY ANY MORE EXPATRIATES AS PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHERS.

    THE VOLUNTEERS THEN SAID THEY WERE WILLING TO GO IN ANOTHER CAPACITY. NOW, THE WOMEN ARE ATTACHED TO THE MINISTRY OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE MEN TO THE MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE.

    THE WOMEN HAVE SPLIT UP INTO SMALLER GROUPS AND ARE NOW HARD AT WORK IN SMALL TANZANIAN COMMUNITIES FOUR OF THEM ARE IN THE CAPITAL, DAR ES SALAAM, AND TEACHING IN A CLASSROOM AT ARNATUGALO HALL.

    IN ADDITION TO DRESS-MAKING, THE JAPANESE GIRLS ARE TRAINING THEIR TANZANIAN STUDENTS IN CHILD WELFARE AND COOKERY.
