Tanz' of Memories from a Tiny Town

March 01, 2019

Feel Good Friday

Traveler Patricia ventured to the remote town of Kisangani, Tanzania. This tiny town of 3,000 left Patricia with Tanz' of the biggest memories…

“When people think of traveling to Tanzania, they usually think of safaris, the Serengeti, and Mt. Kilimanjaro. Venture a couple hours off the beaten path and you will find some of the kindest people and most memorable places."

 

"Some of my most vivid memories are of the beautiful dresses worn by the women in the village for special occasions. I loved sitting outside our tent on Sunday, watching the parade of colors and patterns worn by the women on their way to church."

"My first trip out of the US was to Kisangaji and it was one of the best experiences of my life.” —Traveler Patricia

So Patricia wanted to share with you a piece of this small Tanzanian town in a big way…

Here’s to the Tanz' of memories made in this tiny town and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!

It’s been 8 years since the idea for Taaluma Totes was born while on a life-changing trip to Uganda.

Since then, we’ve been able to fund 41 microloans for small business owners living in Uganda.
