World Travel - Tanzania with Kevin Jenkins

Tuesday, March 29
7:30 p.m.
Nicolet College Theatre

Rhinelander native Kevin Jenkins visited the complex world of East Africa, where the expression hakuna matata (Swahili for “don’t worry”) covers everything from dangerous border crossings, impossible roads, a flat tire, banditry to government corruption. Jenkins experienced these adventures and more while on a Rotarian mission to build a village high school. He’ll talk about the Tanzanians he worked with, the orphaned children who captivated his heart, and the many challenges East Africans face in getting education, nutrition, good jobs, access to health care and adequate housing. A slideshow gives the flavor of the countryside and its inhabitants.


Library Series - Outdoor Writer Larry Brown

Before moving to northern Wisconsin, Larry Brown was a CIA operations officer in Washington, D.C., and North Africa.
