Congratulations to Our Tanzania Correspondent Contest Finalists!

By Emily Riemer

Out of all the amazing entries we received in the last month for our Tanzania Correspondent Contest, our judges have made the tough choices and narrowed them down to our top 10. The judges chose people they thought would best use their skills to tell the stories of our Tanzanian women clients on an Insight Trip to Tanzania, and who best presented their ideas, meeting our criteria of creativity, clarity, originality and more.
