Dear All,

We have been notified by one our networks that, there is a new funding opportunity with a fast approaching deadline – the Carnegie Corporation  is supporting African diasporans to travel back to Africa for short periods for capacity building at African Universities. The information is below, but in a nutshell, it provides funding for African-born scholars (from all disciplines) based in North America to visit Africa for a period of 2 weeks to one semester to engage in joint curriculum development, research collaboration and/or graduate student training and mentoring in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. This is the first round of competitions and the applications are due March 17, 2014!  

PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY TO YOUR AFRICAN-RELATED NETWORKS AND HELP GET THE WORD OUT! It’s the hope of the organizers that there will be a very healthy representation of scientists among the first cohort - the first round of any competition can help shape it, and demonstrate the demand!

In a related effort, please also note that the Department of State works with AAAS and the National Academies in a partnership called NODES – Networks of Diasporas in Engineering and Science.  The website for this partnership (http://www.aaas.org/program/science-and-engineering-diasporas) has many resources and groups – alas in its new website design, AAAS now requires that you dig around – but there are treasures under the Events/Resources/Groups/About tabs. The Deputy Secretary of State recently authored an article of the Potential of Science Diasporas (http://www.aaas.org/news/potential-science-diasporas).

Let me know if you will have any question,

With Kind Regards,

Dr. Ndaga Mwakabuta,
DICOTA President.

Joseph Mwaisango wa Mbeya yetu akiwakilisha msaada toka kwa familia ya mama Masawe wa DSM kwa kituo cha kulelea watoto yatima cha NURU kilichopo Uyole, mkoani Mbeya.

Kituo cha Mtandao wa kijamii cha Mbeya Yetu (www.mbeyayetu.blogspot.com) kimepokea Misaada mbalimbali kutoka kwa wasamaria wema kwa ajili ya Kituo cha kulelea watoto wa mitaani cha Nuru kilichopo Uyole Jijini Mbeya na  Aida Nakawala (25) mkazi wa kijiji cha Chiwanda, Wilaya ya Momba, Mkoa wa Mbeya, ambaye alijifungua watoto wanne kwa mkupuo (Quadruplets) usiku wa kuamkia Mwaka mpya wa 2014 katika Hospitali ya Wazazi ya META jijini Mbeya.
Msaada wa kwanza ulipokelewa hivi karibuni wenye thamani ya shilingi Laki Moja kutoka Familia ya Masawe wa Dar es salaam kwa ajili ya kituo cha Nuru ambapo Mbeya yetu iliuwasilisha kama ulivyo.
Mbali na msaada huo pia Mtandao huu ukishirikiana na mtandao wa kijamii wenye makao yake makuu Jijini Dar es salaam wa www.issamichuzi.blogspot.com ulipokea kutoka kwa Msamaria mwema wa Uingereza, Bi Gladness Sariah, ambaye alitoa maboksi mawili yenye nguo na vitu kadhaa vya watoto.
Aidha katika kuonesha wengi wameguswa na tukio la Mwanamke huyo kujifungua watoto wanne  ambao wanaendelea vizuri, pia Msamaria  mwema mwingine aliyejulikana kwa jina la  Dada Norah SilverBoutique toka Dar es salaam naye  ametoa Maziwa Lactogen makopo 24 pamoja na nguo ambavyo vimewasili salama katika ofisi ya Mbeya Yetu.
 Shukrani kwa Wazee wa Kazi, Serengeti Freight Forwarders ya huko Uingereza na ofisi za Michuzi Media Group (MMG) kuwezesha kufika kwa mizigo hii Mbeya.
Kutokana na kupokelewa kwa mizigo hiyo ambapo kituo cha Nuru kilikabidhiwa Katoni Mbili za Sukari, Sabuni na Biskuti pia Tunatarajia kuanza  safari ya kwenda huko Chiwanda Wilaya ya Momba Kilomita zaidi ya 260 toka Mbeya mjini kufikisha misaada ya Mama wa mapacha wanne. 
Hivyo ni wito wetu kwenu kuendelea kutuombea na kutuunga mkono katika safari hiyo ili tuweze kuifikisha salama mizigo hiyo ikiwa ni pamoja na kuangalia maendeleo ya Watoto hao ambapo watakuwa wameshatimiza mwezi mmoja na siku 24.
