We're a charity working in Tanzania. Our aim is to eradicate poverty through education.

We work with mostly with the Maasai tribe who take their cattle to graze hundreds of kilometres from their homes. We're hoping to use the moblog technology to get important information to this disparate community.

Most of those that use our centre are from the Maasai tribe. They still live a traditional lifestyle, the way they have done for hundreds of years. It's important to them that they keep living that way, so it's important to us, too.

They still live in huts made out of mud and dung and learning how to build these is an essential part of a childs' education. They get taught that (and countless other things from fire building to cow herding) by their siblings, parents and grandparents. It's been that way for hundreds of years. We teach what's new to them and what they need in the modern World - literacy, maths, English and even (at their request), computers.

I'm going to close with our regular footer at the moment...

Please, we still need your vote to help us win £45k of funding to continue our work.

It's really easy to vote. You need a Facebook account and about 10 seconds of time...

1. Click on the following link

2. Scroll down to the second Wall Post & Click MAX to vote for me

3. If it asks you download a facebook application click "allow"

Then that's it - your vote is cast and I say a huge thank you!

Voting closes at midday on Thursday 17 September (UK time)... so get voting and pass it on!

Thanks,
Max

Max i tried that link and it doesnt carry over - it just delivers a blank polls page.

Click here then click MAX on the second wall post. Then click allow if it the polls applications asks for permission.
