The group from Saint
Joseph's College poses in front of the Missionaries of the Precious
Blood Vocation Center in Dodoma, Tanzania, Africa where they stayed
during the recent Global Village Habitat trip.
On July 28, 2004, a group of 8 Saint Joseph's College students
and 2 faculty members left for the College's first-ever international
Habitat for Humanity mission trip. Assisted by HFHI's Global
Village Department and Universal Travel, both in Americus, Georgia and
the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, this trip was also made possible
due to the generosity of the Downey family and Christopher Downey in
particular. Trip participants were: Faculty Advisor Prof.
Fred Berger, Prof. Linda McFarland, Anna Westwood, Kenny Shumard,
Samantha Ma'Ayteh, Amanda Bartz, Kristin Geske, Meg Perryman, Sarah
Bozenda, and Heather Mikus.
Dodoma is the political capital of Tanzania and is located roughly 6
hours by bus "up country" from Dar es Salaam. We flew in to Dar es
Salaam International Airport and spent the first and last nights at the
CEFA Guesthouse in Dar.
