Here are 10 ideas to help your family partner with us and learn Tanzanian culture alongside us!
Get a copy of Pray Around the World, a booklet designed especially for kids to help them pray for CMS workers. Ask Kate to send you one from the CMS SA office: firstname.lastname@example.org or 08 8212 4838.
Browse our photos of life in Tanzania
Take our Tanzanian culture quiz
Make a map of Tanzania. Locate Tanzania on a world map. Colour in this printable version of a map of Tanzania to look like the Tanzanian flag. Stick it to your fridge using our magnet in the middle where Dodoma is. (If you don’t have a magnet, the CMS office can send you one! email@example.com or 08 8212 4838.)
Eat breakfast, lunch or dinner like a Tanzanian by using our Tanzanian recipes
After watching our trip to the markets video, tie a doll onto your child’s back while they play!
See how many steps you can take balancing a bucket on your head. This is a normal way for men and women in Tanzania to carry their shopping or things to sell!
Post a photo of your family and a message on our Facebook page! Or email it to us if you’re concerned about privacy. We promise to write back! firstname.lastname@example.org
Make a package to post to us. Ideas include chocolate, Tim Tams or Vegemite (or something else Australian), a card from your kid(s), or anything you would put in an overseas shoebox. Picture books are not very common here (in English or Swahili) so your kids could think about sending Elliot one they enjoy.
FYI if you include something educational (e.g. stationery, picture book, etc.) and write that in the description on the postal label, the package will be much easier for us to pick up as it doesn’t have to go through customs.
