Augie Cosentino’s grandson, Christopher Wilson, is serving in the Peace Corps in Songea, Tanzania. Chris identified transportation as a major concern for the Catholic priests in Songea.

The Newman Center Men’s Club lead the effort to raise funds to purchase 50 bicycles, plus air pumps and spare tires! And due to the heartfelt generosity of the Newman Community, extra funds were also available to purchase solar panels for the school. Since there is no electricity in the village, these solar panels will allow the school to be used at night for classes and other important evening activities.

Thank you to all in the Newman Community who made this possible!
