Artists for World Peace Partnering with Tanzania Orphanage

Wendy Black Nasta, Founder and Executive Director of Artists For World Peace, will be the speaker at the Thursday, September 27 meeting of the Greater Middletown Branch of AAUW (American Association of University Women). The public is invited to this program which will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Wasch Center, 51 Lawn Avenue, Middletown.

Good Hope Orphanage Center in Kibosho-Umbwe, Tanzania, is one of a number of sustainability projects that Black-Nasta has designed and Artists for World Peace has funded. The Tanzanian founder of the orphanage, Josephine Machuwa, and Black-Nasta are partnering and changing the lives of thousands of villagers in this remote village in the foot hills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. A large accomplishment there has been the building of a community health center. 2500 villagers will be receiving medical attention, some for the first time. Black-Nasta has pointed out that hundreds of artists and supporters around the world have enabled Artists for World Peace and their International Peace Belt to continue to change lives wherever they travel…one child, one village, one project at a time.
