You are invited to attend a Slide Show and Lecture on Global Education Partnershipís Safari Partnership to Kenya and Tanzania at the Irvine Auditorium at the Monterey Institute of International Studies on Tuesday, December 3 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.

The slide show will be given by Jonathan Berkey, former Peace Corps volunteer, MIIS alum, and President of the Board of Global Education Partnership, and Marie Butcher, GEP Safari-Partnership Coordinator.

You will see scenes from some of the most beautiful countryside in East Africa: from the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro to historical sites in Mombasa and the ancient spice capital, Zanzibar.

In case youíve ever thought about exploring the Eden of Africa, Ngorogoro Crater, hereís your opportunity to see some images of elephants, giraffes and zebras roaming
in the wilds.

Most importantly, you will learn how Global Education Partnership works to provide educational resources for children in rural schools and develop programs that foster self-reliance in youth and communities.

The slide show serves to promote the 2003 summer trip to Kenya and Tanzania, slated for July 6-22, 2003.

Participants on the Safari will have the opportunity to meet and interact directly with the people of Kenya and Tanzania, in an effort to broaden cross-cultural understanding and help provide much needed educational resources in rural African schools.

Part of each participantís fare will go directly toward a
matching-grant to provide much needed textbooks and/or desks.

Past participants will be in attendance and will be available to answer questions about the trip.

Anyone interested in learning more about East Africa and GEPís exciting trip to Kenya and Tanzania should attend.

The event is free and open to the public, so bring a friend!

Come to the Irvine Auditorium, at the Monterey Institute of International Studies on Tuesday, December 3 at 7pm.
