So the team has been back in the states now for a week.  We had a very nice last few days with our hosts in Dar Es Salaam, and a relatively uneventful trip back to the states (including a whole lot of ramped up security, post-Glasgow).  Now we’re all over the place – Seattle, New York, DC, Boston, Israel…I’m in Austin, TX right now at S.O.W. headquarters, logging and editing our short documentary for the Clinton Global Initiative, and then cutting together some pieces for Africare.  We’ll be rolling this blog over for next year’s team, so keep in the queue if you’re interested in staying up to date on the Columbia group.  And as soon as the documentary is in some viewable shape, I’ll work on finding an upload platform and posting up on here somehow.  Thanks everyone for reading along during our trip and especially for all of the comments. – Bryan

This June, the Columbia team will travel to Tanzania, where we will study two Africare-partnered organizations. The Community-Based Orphan Care, Protection and Empowerment (COPE) Project seeks to increase the community's ability to provide support and care for vulnerable children. The Kilimanjaro Landscape Conservation Partnership (KLCPP) aims to preserve both the communities of Kilimanjaro and its natural attributes.

Last summer, the Columbia team - in its inaugural SOW trip - traveled with Brown to Ethiopia, where we studied the HIV/AIDS testing and treatment sites of the African Services Committee. For photographs from that trip, please click the "Photos" tab at the top of the page.
